"Crayola"
I received "Crayola" Saturday morning. Thank you Misha for the beautiful Yarn. I love it. It will be my first experience with Alpaca.
My stores near here don't sell the really good stuff. I only have Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart.

Here is a pic of the Crayola blanket before I get started. I will be adding green and will post pics when I get it done.

New Blankets
We have 6 blankets! Way to go everyone!

We have 6 that we are working on, one is with that last knitter... and and 2 other are near the end...

So do you all want to start new ones?

We can start preemiee ones too... Knitgirl2007 (at Rav) would like to start one, so I think 2 or 3 others would be good. Who would like to start one (and what size do you want to make)? The preemie blankets are made with dk yarn.... We still have lots of themes left from our list...

Smurfy
Lucky Charms
Primary colors
diagonal rainbow
A neon one
spring in the garden
birds
fruit salad
Finding Nemo
Little Mermaid
Sunset
Tip-Toe in the Tulips
Blue Sky
Skittles
Banana Split
Splish Slash
Lemon Drops & Gum Drops
Little Boy Blue
Little Bo Peep
Cupcakes
Puddin’
Dinosaur
Diggers
Cinderella
Blue Ridge Mountains
Olivia - using chocolate - soft pink - and offwhite
Charles - using chocolate - baby blue- and offwhite
All that glitters
Ballband (Baby Brick or blocks)

Of course you don't have to pick one from here... it could be anything you would like to do....

Hi Ladies!! Thank you so much for all the congratulatory messages!! I have to tell you that I am so tired, I feel like I am the one who had a baby and not just the auntie!!

I have spent several nights helping her out (she is bf'ing, so you can only do so much, right??) And, I have my 2 year old to take care of during the day time, I am just exhausted!! But, Mommy and baby are doing GREAT! He is so adorable, I can't even tell you!! I just want to love him up!! I keep putting off the date of when I am supposed to go home! My poor DH probably thinks he has lost me forever!!!

On a different note, I FINALLY got Winter Wonderland in the mail to Sandy!!! I can't tell you how sorry I am that it has taken this long! I am so embarrassed!!

I did sneak out one day and go to a class with my mom at the LYS (before the baby came!) and we learned how to do Magic Loop and made a hat. It is the CUTEST hat ever and I am in the process of making another one for a good friend of mine!! It was really tricky for me at first since I hadn't knitted much in the round anyway, but I really liked it and I think I will like this method a lot more than using those tricky looking dpns!

Better run!!! Sandy, I have a tracking number for Winter Wonderland if it doesn't show up in a couple of days - I sent it priority!! :-)

Don't worry about the blanket... it's really ok...

Glad you found you liked Magic Loop, I'd love to see that hat...

Hey Dawn!!

Thanks for making me feel better about not getting that in the mail faster!! :-)

Welcome to the group, JB4Knitting!! :-)

I really like the idea of doing preemie blankets, I don't really see why they wouldn't be the same size at the regular ones, but I have only worked on one so far and I was the 2nd section! What size do our blankets usually come out? I love the idea of the Olivia blanket!! I know I am about to get Jelly Bellies, so I am not sure if I am ready to start one of my own, but maybe after I get home and settled in.

Here is a picture of my nephew!!

What a sweet baby!

And....please....no worries about the blanket being late. All of my stuff has been behind lately too. I just have too many projects going at the same time!

My internet has been acting up lately and we just found out today it is due to the addition my neighbor is doing. Thankfully it should be fixed.
Autumn Leaves arrived here safe and sound yesterday! I really wish you all could see the blankets in real life they are so beautiful!!!!! The pile of finished blanket keeps getting bigger and bigger, I can't wait to deliver them.

Welcome JB! Glad you joined us. We love getting all the help we can!!

Amanda, the baby is sooo cute! You were not being biased at all when told us about him!

Dawn, I would love to start a blanket. I absolutely loved Red Roses that was done before we split into regions. I have 2 skeins of light blue simply soft that can be sent along so everyone can use the same yarn. I think it is called light country blue- so not quite smurfy or sky blue.

Also if anyone starting a new blanket needs needle I still have 3 available.
