Three blankets were mailed off to the next knitters on Tuesday:
[B]Fruit Punch[/B]


[B]Tiny Dancer[/B]


Thank you, sandycloset, for the beautiful work you did on [B]Cupcakes[/B] and [B]It’s a Girl[/B]. I received both of them this morning. :yay: :yay: :yay:

I will add then to the pile of completed worsted weight blankets and photograph them this weekend.


Spikey, I got [B]Junebug[/B] in the this morning’s mail. I can’t wait to work on it this weekend.



I received two blankets from knittinginhudson this morning. [B]Dogwood[/B] has all the colors of the dogwood tree that blossoms here in southern CT in May. I can’t wait to work on the border of [B]Dogwood[/B] this weekend. It will be great to add it to our completed blanket pile for delivery to Bridgeport Hospital.

I also received [B]Confetti[/B], an Oddball preemie baby blanket.

Thank you for the gift card, knittinginhudson…I love Dunkin’ Donuts coffee! :muah: :muah: :muah:


The DK weight blanket bloghas been updated, with new pics, new blankets (with openings for knitters and crocheters), and updated progress.


I sent out Under the Sea (ww) this morning. It’s on it’s way to Vermont.


Here’s a pic of the completed [B]Spearmint Candy[/B]

and one of [B]Spumoni[/B]


I am starting a worsted weight blanket called [B]Surf and Sand[/B]. I was thinking it is the summer after all, and some in the group have found their way to the ocean. Why not a baby blanket that celebrates the ocean?

This blanket will be worked on a size 8, 110 stitches in blues, taupe and whites.

Please let me know if you are interested in working on this newest worsted weight blanket, [B]Surf and Sand[/B].

Thanks, everyone! :muah: :muah: :muah:


JuneBug, one of our newest preemie blankets, was posted yesterday to missyjoon.

Dots, another preemie baby blanket, is currently on hold while the next (and last) knitter is on vacation.



[B]Confetti[/B], the third preemie blanket I worked on over the weekend, is on its way to mdc550 for its border. Then off to Spikey for distribution.



Thank you, stevedallas, for the great work on I[B]t’s a Boy[/B]! I picked it up from school today. My principal happened to be there so I showed her the finished product. She especially liked the border!

Thanks again!
