Each person gets to do whatever pattern they want to on their section, unless the blanket has a specific pattern to it.

You don't have to apologize for the questions, we've all asked at some point! I know I have!

Sorry for all the questions; I'm just trying to get a good feel for how this works.
You might want to read the post I made on how to work on an Oddball Baby Blanket. It probably answers all the questions you have.

Hey!! Sandy, I am so glad that Winter Wonderland arrived safely! Woo Hoo!!!

JB4Knitting- Don't worry about asking lots of questions!! I am the same way! :-) I got my stitch pattern from a perpetual calendar of stitches (every day was a different type of stitch). I can't remember the name of the stitch, but it was super easy!! I think I need to get a stitch dictionary for myself, that one was my mom's!

Thanks! Yes, a dictionary would actually be a great idea!

Anyone looking for a stitchionary should check out their local library! I can't decide on which one I want to buy and have been trying different books from the library. I've found ones I really like and ones I don't but it didn't cost me a cent( except for the 50 cent late fee on the one I really liked) I received one of the perpetual 365 stitch a day calendars a couple of years ago and really like it. Between that, the library books and of course the internet I am never at a loss for pattern. Most of the time I can't decide due to too many choices.

When I can't get to my knitting books, and a computer is nearby, I use this website for Knitting Stitch Designs:
http://www.knittingonthenet.com/stitches.htm

All of the "Reversible Stitch Patterns" on that page work well for our blankets.

Hey Guys,

Just a quick note to say that: We in Northeastern AR are in pretty bad shape. Most of the areas do not have power. I do not have electricity and it is difficult to get anywhere from where I live as I live in a rural area and many electrical poles and trees are down around us. I will be late sending Crayola blanket out because of getting it to the PO. I will not be on the site until I can get back to work because we only have a lap top with a few hrs on it right now. We do have heat and water so we are doing okay. Food is running low and we have to drive at least 25 to 50 miles to the nearest open store but at least there are some open in driving distance. We will be going for food at some point today I think. Pray for us that we get back to normal soon.

Oh my goodness!!! I am so sorry to hear that you are trapped because of the ice storms!! I hope that everyone else in the group is safe too!! I glad that I came home to Atlanta when I did or I would be stuck for who only knows how long! Be careful when you drive out for groceries!

I have been working on a hat using magic loop and practicing knitting continental. I have trouble letting the yarn slide through my fingers while maintaining my tension, but I think it is getting easier. Of course, I haven't had to practice purling yet, and I think that might put me over the edge!!

My dd and I both have a nasty cold, so we have been taking it pretty easy. My prayers are with you!
