since feb is fast approaching what about a valentine blanket all in reds and pinks. Let me know what you think.
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.
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?"
