I forgot to ask this earlier....

When we send the blanket to the next knitter, it always has the paper in it that tells how many stitches there should be, knit 3 at the beginning and 3 a the end, etc. For the ones that are starting blankets... we will need a way to print that letter off so we can include it. Do you have a copy or do we have to make our own? I do think they should all say the same thing (except for the number of stitches). I just didn't know if we needed to see if Shandeh could post the letter or if we needed to come up with one as a group. It should be specifically for the SouthEast.

And... I have never worked on a blanket that followed the same pattern (like the feather of fan)... I think we should include the pattern that is being used so that everyone will know exactly what the pattern is.

I hope I am not posting to many things. I just keep thinking of things to ask and things to mention. I am a little bit of a perfectionist... so I like to know that I TOTALLY understand things.

Thanks for putting up with me!! I hope I am not making everyone want to pull their hair out.

No Kelly not at all. I really need the help... I have a copy of the paper that goes with the blankets. I'll send it to you, LBECK do you need a copy too?

And yes if we have a pattern like the father fan one or the diagonal rainbow we will include the pattern for it. And we can even put stitch markers to help with making sure the pattern is coming out right when needed.

I just pmed it to you.

I've made changes to it since somethings have changed (like not sending the notebook, mine was from when we did) so anyone that makes a new one will need this new memo. I will try to make sure I send it to everyone when you need it but if I don't remind me and I will.

I got it!! Thanks... the only question that I have... it this... it still has Shandeh's information. I just wanted to see if that is correct? Since we have branched off... do we still need to contact her or you?

Thanks so much!! I got it and I now have it saved to my computer. I was reading over the sheet and thought of something else. It says to end with a row of knit stitches on the WRONG side. I have had a problem with a couple of the blankets that I have worked on recently where the knitter before me did not end on the correct side. I just wanted to clarify for myself and everone else that may not understand...When it says, "just be sure to end your section on a WRONG SIDE ROW with ALL KNIT STITCHES"...

That means to be looking at or having the wrong side of the work facing you when you are doing the last row of knit stitches... correct????

And one other thing... I normally use the long tail cast on for my projects. It just seems to be easier for me. Is that ok when starting a blanket or should I use another type of cast on?

Just about any type of cast on is fine, except maybe invisible... so yes go ahead and use long tail, that's the one I use for the blankets too.

And yes it's the wrong side means that the back or wrong side is facing you as you knit it. I have had one that was that way too, I didn't even realize it until I had done my 3 knit rows and was working out how my pattern would work.

Huh?....... Whah?...... Sorry, I was just dozing since I have NO OTHER TIME TO SLEEP!!

Haha, just kidding. No, don't put me down for crocheting. I just got word today that the buyer for my house FINALLY got his financing set. So, I need to move in 3 weeks. And um, yeah, I'm on vacation to NY and Canada for one of those weeks.

Yikes.

But I'm excited I sold my house is today's economy!

Congrats Brenda!! That is an accomplishment. My neighbor's house has been on the market for 4 months now and they are really getting stressed about not selling.

Kelly I have no problem with you starting M&Ms! Once I put my ideas on this thread I considered them "Southeast" property not mine. Kelly please don't think you are asking too many questions! This is new and we all have questions.

I have a pattern picked out and printed for Atlantic Waves( I love the name thanks!). I will definitely be sending it along with the blanket! I'll also probably be adding stitch markers if needed. It's been a while since I done feather and fan so I'll see.
