I'm posting here too because I think there are members here that are not on Ravelry still....right?

I recently sent Candy Land out for its border and it has arrived but I wanted to share a picture anyway. This is one of those blankets that totally wasn't what I had pictured...perhaps it's because I have small kids, but I was imagining this one to be the color of a Candy Land game board when I opened it...it is not what I pictured but it's a sweet blanket all the same:


Spring Fling is ready for its border:

The center section reminds me of a pansy!

Also, Wizard of Oz arrived today and I'm getting ready to start my section on Superheroes today as well!

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to let you know that Beach Party arrived safe and sound. Thank you for the lovely notepad, I've already started using it! Beach party already has so much pizzazz, it certainly is a party! I am about half way done with my section and I should be ready to send it along by the end of the week, God willing. :D

First Look at Superheroes
I finally started and finished my section of Superheroes. I wanted to do something a little special for my section but it required learning some new techniques and doing a few practice swatches after finding the perfect pattern. Next I had to weave in ALL of my ends:



Itís definitely far from perfect (my section anyway - the Captain America section is GREAT), but Iím pretty proud of it, mostly because it took extra time and effort and Iím proud of myself for taking the time for it (Iím usually looking for the easy way out so this was big for me )



If I could get the mailing info for the next knitter I will get in the mail right away! Looking forward to seeing this one progress. I also posted on the challenge page.

Enjoy your day!

I agree, Bailey... the colors of Candy Land were not at all what I expected, either, but it did turn out to be a *sweet* little blanket anyway - especially once it received it's pretty border from Kae. One of the reasons I chose my stitch pattern (the mint green one) is because the little squares reminded me of the squares on the Candy Land board and the cards.

Bailey, I LOVE it!
Batman was always my boys favorite superhero. Brings back lots of fun memories of my little boys running all over the house with black trash bags for capes.
