just my 2 cents worth.
I agree with making this one a fall theme. Personally, I am all for a Halloween theme, but we probably should make it more "charity friendly" where it can go to anyone regardless of beliefs. Orange can definitely be incorporated into the fall theme. Pumpkins - yum!

I don't have a clue why I have two posts of almost the same thing. Weird. It's definitely been one of those days. I think I'm going to and then go to bed!

We're back from vacation and I'm getting caught up again!

Strawberry Sundae is awesome ladies! I just love how these blankets work up.

I'm excited about Smurfs and can't wait to get started on it.

And the candy corn idea sounds good too. Candy corn is also one of my favorite candies and I bought some candy corn sock yarn on etsy last year. I uh, only have one sock finished, but some day those will be my favorite pair - LOL!

Sounds like the idea for "Candy Corn" is a go!

Lucky_alf2 - would you like to start this blanket? I can send you needles if you need them.
