Time for Some Updates!

Please forgive this blogger. It's summer, and she's been playing house.

Although the group is officially on break, a few of the members are finishing up blankets that were started at the very end of our Spring-time dash.

Summer Sky just received its fifth section...

Busy Baby Bee just received its second section. We're using the bee stitch for the entire blanket.

One of our members completed another blanket...all by herself...and has started a second one.

Here's Snowdrops:

Here's Lily of the Valley:

More Updates!

Sorry all! I'm afraid that life has me busy running around.

Here are new pictures of some of our blankets. I've also updated the list on the right. Please let me know if I need to make any corrections.

First off, Pinnut started two new blankets. The first one pictured is Lemon Drop.

The next blanket is Summer Sky.

Pinnut also worked on Neon Rainbow, which had a bit of a hiatus but is now almost complete:

Nannaknits added the borders to several blankets.


Fruity Pebbles

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Purlingkitten has also been busy. She added the border to Little Boy Blue.

Here's an updated picture of Pumpkin Pie, which has resumed its travels. This is how it looked after wsnels added her section:

Dimpledapple provided the following picture of You Are My Sunshine:

Kaniger posted the following pictures of Flower Power:

We're getting very close to finishing up our blankets. I'm so proud of the work our ladies have done. Y'all rock!

Surf and Sand is Making Waves!

Surf and Sand is nearly complete! We have only the border left before it, too, is forwarded to nostash2big, who is delivering the blankets to her local yarn store. They are taking donations for the Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado.

Fruity Pebbles Gets Another Section!

Fruity Pebbles continues to travel...very quickly...across the West Coast. Stisdale recently finished her section. Four down, two more to go!

Here's a close-up of the pattern stitches...

And here's a picture from farther away...

Wow, Our Blankets Are Really Growing Fast!!

Wow! You issue a group a challenge, and they really rise to the occasion!

About a month and a half ago, the coordinator asked the group if it would be willing to work double-time to get the blankets cranked out before the post office raises the postage rate in May.

Well, the ladies have been working feverishly to reach this goal, and the blankets are literally flying off of the needles!

Here's the progress of several, with a few completed ones as well!

One of our members, Pinnut, has cranked out three new blankets since the last blog post. This one is called Chutes and Ladders.

She also knit Arctic Ice. Dimpledapple finished it with a lovely border (her first blanket border for the group! Great job!!).

Pinnut also made Little Princess. She knit the border too! For details on the border, please visit her blog.

Sepenguins posted this picture of Pumpkin Pie. We started it back in the Fall, before Thanksgiving. It has resumed its journey across the West Coast...about halfway done.

The next blanket is Surf and Sand. One more knitter to go before it gets a border!

Here's Jewel of the Nile. It, too, has one more knitter before heading to the last gal for a border.

This blanket is called Chocolate Covered Cherries. It reminds me of a hot fudge sundae! Yum!

This blanket is Fruity Pebbles. It's one of our newer blankets. The colors remind me of summer fruit!

Here's Snowball, which we decided had to be all white, of course! One of our newest knitters recently added her section...her first Oddball blanket! Woo Hoo!

Great job ladies!!

Our Blankets Continue to Grow!

Our blankets are quickly growing. We've set a goal for ourselves...hoping to get the blankets finished before the postage rate goes up in May.

Kaniger recently finished her section of Surf and Sand:

Krismorales added her section to Flower Power. It's a very bright blanket!

Pinnut has also been busy...once again knitting an entire blanket on her own! She's named this one Arctic Ice. Dimpledapple will be adding the border.
