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

Nannaknits, from over on KH, posted this update on Tropical Plantation:
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.
Here’s a list of the knitters who worked on this blanket:
Y’all did a wonderful job!!

Wyospinner added her section to Little Boy Blue. Nostash2big is already hard at work on it.
Wyospinner quickly knit her section of Blueberry Bliss and already has it on the road to the next knitter!
GREAT job gals! The plans for this project are to take a holiday break as soon as the current blankets are finished. Everyone deserves a little R&R after such hard work!

Tripletmomma added a beautiful shell border to the Grand Canyon Sunset blanket. This blanket reminds me (the writer of this post) of the trip I took in the spring, when my plane flew over the Grand Canyon on its way to Las Vegas. What a lovely sight to behold.

Woo Hoo! Our first completed blanket! This is Rainbow Sherbert. Its name changed a few times during its time with our knitters, but what matters the most is that the gals worked hard and turned out a beautiful work of love. The knitters who worked on this were:
knittinmitchie - completed the last section and the border
Any parent would be honored to have this blanket cover their wee one.
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.

AuburnChick finished casting on two new blankets: Lemonade Stand and Little Boy Blue. These will be preemie blankets.
Kaniger finished her section of Tropical Plantation! Doesn't this make you want to go for a nature walk in Hawaii? Lovely!!
