Yesterday, our last knitter (Tobinknit) completed our "Peppy Pastels" baby blanket, and added a lovely crochet border to make it even MORE lovely! :D

She immediately started another blanket, and we've dubbed this one "Angel Wings".

Neon Storm Baby Blanket

Shandeh started another baby blanket last night. This one is called "Neon Storm", and will be made with flourescent, neon colors. :D

Shandeh used a flourescent reddish-orange yarn from her stash, which is a vintage yarn by Fruit of the Loom. Ha! She also added a center detail of black and lime green. The black is TLC Extra Soft, and the lime green is two strands of TLC Baby.

Here's an update on our "Fruity Loops" baby blanket. It's been worked on by 2 knitters, and is now in the home of Auburnchick, who will add the 3rd section. Then, we'll be halfway finished!

Sunny Days Blanket

I just started another baby blanket last night, and it was quick work to finish my part! I used Caron Simply Soft, in a nice sunny yellow, with a "Simple Checker" design. (page 37 in the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns.)

Now, I'm working on another blanket, called "Mexican Fiesta". I'm using a bright purple Caron Simply Soft yarn for that one. Photos soon!
