Love the Neapolitan idea! Do you need another knitter? I'm not currently on any blankets so I can go on a few now. I actually don't have any of these colors (believe it or not!) so I'll just buy one color, or all three depending on whats decided!

Great! I have myself, SharonP, Ewalker, Biztec, MsBookie,and howdovely down for Neapolitan.
We just need someone to do the border.
I like the idea of everyone doing all 3 colors for 2 inches. Is that OK with everyone? If not we can work something else out.

Debbie, the pattern I use is
row 1 knit
row 2(wrong side) k1, slip 1 across
row 3: knit
row 4: slip1 knit 1 across
repeat

I've received a couple of PMs about Neapolitan. Let's go ahead and do it random. If you would like to use all three color feel free but it is not required. And we will keep it regular sized.
I'll be casting on today with chocolate and seeing where my stash takes me after that.
ETA: Thanks to everyone who signed up! This one filled up quickly!!

Have fun!!! I guess you guys aren't having to worry about Hurricane Earl that far south. Must be nice! We are hoping and praying it stays east.

Holly, we may get a little rain but Earl knows that this is Girls at the Beach weekend ... and there are NO BOYS ALLOWED ! My granddaughters, daughter in law and I have been doing a girls week end at the beach every since our oldest grandaughter was 1 ... This is Girls @the Beach 10 ... and we added another grand girl at # 5

Praying that the hurricane will stay out in the ocean and not cause loss and damage. Stay safe!!!

Blue Sky
I received Blue Sky in mail a few days ago. Haven't started it still finishing up on Splish Splash. Had a baby gift get in between but I will be back to work on it this weekend and hopefully start on Blue Sky as no more babies until Feb are due around here.

I will be starting on Christmas though soon. Has anyone else started on Christmas yet? I know some people work on that all year. I just don't have the time.. it seems like every time I turn around there is a baby coming here.

Thank you, Burma, for the little surprise in the bag. Love them.
