Hi
I have found one circular knitting needle in my stash, however am not sure if it is a 6mm or 6.5 mm it is 50cm long. I will send it along with the circus blanket if that is going back to you or send it with the couple of squares that I am working on. which ever comes first.

Last night, I finished the beginning of the "Circus Fun" blanket for the knitters in England. I'll be mailing it out this week.


I used Purple and Yellow Caron Simply Soft, sandwiched between two layers of a colorful, variegated Bernat Super Value. (That yarn is MUCH softer than I thought it would be!)

Wow that's lovely!

I love the Sirdar Snuggly, but it won't work for this project. The hospital has asked for the blankets to be 100% acrylic.

Thanks for asking!

Add me to which ever blanket Pauline maddocks is doing since the blankets will already be in the UK we might as well get a few colours done before it goes back.

Went back over previous posts and see that this question has already been answered, so will order some today.

I see that Hollyp started a blanket, I think we should start a blanket here in the UK that way it will only have one trip across the pond.
I don't mind starting it off, any takers.

since blue and purple has been taken and since feb is fast approaching what about a valentine blanket all in reds and pinks. Let me know what you think
