This blanket I am working on right now reminds me of a bowl of neopolitan ice cream LOL! This blanket is supposed to be a "Flower Garden". Oh my! Perhaps once other colours are mixed with this it WILL look like a flower garden, who knows...


OK, we have named four blankets and two of these are already in production.

1. Powder Puff - is with knitgal right now (white/lavendar/pink/grey/peach/white)
2. Flower Garden - is with The.Knitter right now (any flower colour but yellow)
3. Mud Pie - Sue's idea is waiting to be started (various shades of brown/tan/beige)
4. Sky Blue - knitgal's idea is waiting to be started (various shades of blue)

How does this sound to you other members? Let me know...

Haha, I don't think "Sky Blue" was my idea...was it? It's a great idea, but I don't want to steal someone's thunder!
I don't mind starting one and then sending it off too. I am at about 4 inches on the Powder Puff blankie and it's so much fun. I stop and look at it and just think about how nice it is to be doing something like this.

Actually it was your idea, sort of.... you are the first one that told me we have to work on some boy blankies too! So I came up with a blue name, but it WAS your idea. Sue came up with the idea of the beige, tans and browns, which I think it great too! Good boy name for that one... Mud Pie!

I'm also thinking of doing one with bright colours like red, purple, orange, blue, etc. or even (if we can find them) neon colours. That would be a good boy blanket I think.

If you want to start "Sky Blue" let me know and I will send you the form you will need to send on to the next knitter. You'll have to get a wee journal (I got them from the Dollar store). Also, hold back enough yarn to finish with the same colour you start with so the blanket looks nice when it's finished. Perhaps your blankie could send it out west first and then come back to Ontario.

I'm glad you are having fun with our project!

We will have four blankets in production some time in the next few days. I will let everyone know when to expect a blanket to knit. There are three more blankets waiting that could be started if someone wants to jump right in. Just PM me and I will let you know how we start the blankets.

Thanks ladies! This means the first delivery to the hospital will include four (or more) blankets and not just one!! Way to go!

Hello everyone!
Hope you all had great weekends, I know I did!
I am almost ready to send off the blanket. I think I will be able to ship it off on Friday as that's my day off. I will also start the "Sky Blue" blankie as soon as I can. I am a little stressed as I am finished school in 1 month (post-graduate program in Public Relations) and I am moving in 1 month, so I want to get it started and off before the craziness begins. Hopefully this weekend!
I will post a picture of Powder Puff today!

Thanks so much Leslie! That's great. Soft Hugs is all pinks and garter stitch. That should be a really pretty one when it's done!

Hello Everyone!
Okay, so I got around to taking some pictures of our first blankie. Here's Powder Puff:
The white is Christine's and the lavendar is mine. I used box stitch and I thought it turned out really cute. I'm just about done and so I'll be packing it up and sending it off to Sue by about Friday. Then I'll get to start Sky Blue! This is just so much fun!
