More Completed Blankets

Sorry for not exactly being on top of things. Life is getting in the way of posting.

The group has been hard at work on the blankets, and several have been finished.

Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand is one of our preemie blankets. AuburnChick cast on and then the other knitters ran with it. The gals who worked on it are:



Disneyland was started by AuburnChick, who knit the red section and inserted hearts into it. They reminded her of Minnie Mouse. Each knitter selected colors that are associated with various Disney characters. AuntCrafty added the last section and then the border, which resembles Mickey Mouse ears.

The gals who worked on this blanket are:


**A special note about Disneyland. We will be donating this blanket to a knitting friend of our's who just learned of a young lady in desperate need of baby items for the upcoming birth of her child. What a generous group we have.

One other blanket update is Puppy Love. Nannaknits provided this photo with her section added:

Autumn Reds is Complete!

Nannaknits put the finishing touches on Autumn Reds. She posted the following information about the blanket:

It doesn't look like it in the picture but this blanket is pretty much square. I did the border in Chocolate brown, single crochet 5 rows with a crab stitch final row. I think it is really pretty.

Tropical Plantation is finished. Here is a picture of the final blankie. For the border I did three rows of single crochet followed by a row of backwards single crochet. I think they call that stitch the Crab stitch.

knittinmitchie - completed the last section and the border

Any parent would be honored to have this blanket cover their wee one.

Carousel, Puppy Love, and Pretty in Pink Join the Family Too!

Our knitters have been keeping themselves out of trouble by starting a lot of new blankets this week!

AuburnChick cast on two more. The one below is Carousel, which is the colorway of the yarn. She used the Check Pattern from the book knit & purl.

The next blanket she cast on, in her enthusiasm for the yarn and the project, is called Puppy Love. The colorway is "Puppy," and the stitch is "Twisted Moss." The yarn actually has flecks of color in it, although the picture doesn't show them.

Nannaknits cast on Pretty in Pink. She used Caron Simply Soft "Pink," and the pattern is the Diagonal Rib from this site.
