I can help out if you need it, Nathalie. Just say the word. The only thing I'll need is the instruction sheet, which I can print out on my printer.

auburn once I'm done with my commitment i think I'm going to take a break. I've been neglecting my spinning and normal non-class & charity knitting. Plus we are leaving Dec 19th or 20th to head out of town for Christmas.

Totally understandable, my friend. You deserve a vacation.

I'm thinking that we'll get these blankets that are on the needles done and donated and then take a short hiatus to let us catch our breath. We're putting out a lot of blankets in a very short time...very impressive!

Hi guys! We’ve been rather quiet the last few days, eh? Probably all busy knitting.


Well, I just finished casting on Candy Cane. Here’s a picture:





This blanket is going to be all garter stitch, and we’ll alternate the red and white yarn. I used I Love This Yarn, and I’m going to send the remainder of the white skein, along with a skein of red (not full skeins, mind you, but almost full).


I received two blankets in the mail today…Pretty in Pink and another that I’m going to name Strawberry Shortcake. We were going to call this one Cotton Candy, but I don’t think it looks much like that. Perhaps “Strawberry Shortcake” will stick until the end this time.


Here’s a picture of it.





The next picture is Pretty in Pink. Don’t get confused by the colors…they were knit by the same gals who used the same colors on both blankets. Nannaknits used two different stitches for the first section.





Remember, we’re re-naming Cotton Candy to ”Strawberry Shortcake.” I put it on a separate set of needles and will ship it out as soon as I have a knitter for the next section. I still need four more knitters plus someone to do the border. Does anyone want to sign up?

I also need one more knitter and someone to do the border for Pumpkin Pie. If anyone is interested in working on this blanket, please let me know.


Ok…I think that’s it for now.


Whew!
