I'd be happy to work on Crayon Box too. Sounds like a fun one to work on.

Those of you who inquired about Crayon Box - it was a blanket done long ago by only one knitter - that's why there is only one name on the blanket.

Maybe we should remove the lists on the blog after the blanket is done.

The Crayon Box that is on the blog is a blanket that I knit myself and sent to marria to add the border for our group.

Sadly, marria and the blanket have gone MIA.

You can see the finished blanket on my blog.

It was a lot of fun to make, and I suggest that the group start one.

Ooh, it would be fun to knit one as a group! I'd kept it on the list in the hopes that it would one day find its way back. Your call, though, Nancy. If you prefer, I can definitely take it off.

I'm afraid that it is gone forever. Auburnchick and I both tried to contact Marria, but she doesn't respond.

You might as well take it off of the list.

It is a shame that the blanket disappeared. I suggest that we start another one and call it Crayon Box, Too as a group blanket. I would love to reserve a spot on it.

I am working on my first blanket start right now. I am going to call it "Frogs and Snails". It is a regular boy blanket since there seem to be too few of those right now. The first section in about half finished right now and is Kelly Green- Vanna's Choice. I named it for the poem about what boys are made of. In my minds eye, it will be the bright colors that different kinds of frogs can be with a white and brown border for the snails and puppy dog tails. I chose the green to start off with because I have this neat picture of my son (then 15) with this huge bullfrog he caught while working with his scoutmaster as a cleanup person on a home construction site. He has this cute boyish grin and this big green frog! Let me know what you think.

I agree that it is unbelievable that someone would take off with a blanket made for charity..That should give us all the fire power to want to do more...I love working on these blankets and I'm sure that those who receive them are very grateful. Becky

New Blanket - Frogs And Snails
mspwrz has started a new blanket for us to work on. She's calling it Frogs and Snails. It will be a regular one and will need 5 more knitters and a border. Signups are open!

I'm up for working on Frogs and Snails if there are spots. I don't want to be a knit hog so if others are interested I won't be offended if you don't need me. I just love working on these beautiful blankets and helping out those little babies.
