Pauline Thats brilliant any other takers. this is open to all just thought to get the english section done first before it goes over to the US. or if there are enough takers make it a UK blanket either way works for me.

I can do the pinks and reds I think if I can post to another UK person. I can't always afford US postage

THanks DQ hopefully we will get a couple of more people involved, but at the end I don't mind if whoever finish send the blanket back to me and I will post to Sandy.

If everybody is happy I will start this when I get my order of lion Brand Microspun that I ordered today. Hopefully I will have it by the end of the week.

Woo Hoo!
It's so cool to see this project getting a life of its own! You are MORE than welcome to start your own blanket, my friend.

Just cast on about 100 stitches, and be sure to knit the first 3 rows with all garter stitch. And begin and end each row with 3 knit stitches, so it will have a nice border. You can do whatever you want with the center stitches.

Be sure to get a tiny journal, big enough for the 6 knitters to each write a little something about themselves and the work they do on the blanket. The little journal will be kept with the blanket, and given to the child in the hospital when the blanket is complete.

I'll add your blanket to the list! What would you like to call it? How about "Loving Hearts" or something like that?"

Loving hearts sounds good. I have already done a test in some other unsuitable yarn with stitches in purl and knit to make a heart. Think I can fit about four in a row. Or maybe hearts and X for a kiss havent made up my mind yet.
