Rainbow Sherbert, Preemie Blanket #4
We're looking for 4 more Northeast Oddball knitters who would like to work on Preemie Blanket #4, Rainbow Sherbert. I'm casting on with soft pink, and was thinking we'd go more for sherbert-looking colors (soft green, soft yellow, cream, etc.), and not necessarily follow the order of the rainbow. Anyone interested? Please let us know!

What a wonderful donation!

Here's the beginning of Mermaid Tales - the color in the pic is not the actual color though - it's a dark teal, not blue ...




I'd be happy to help on Rainbow Sherbert too

I should say that Emerald is my daughter, who has seen the two blankets I've gotten so far and wants in on the fun!

Pictures!!!!!
Hi Northeasters!

Since the West Coasters have clearly jumped the gun, and threesmom was kind enough to break the ice, gmmarton and I decided to post the pics we've been collecting of the blankets that have been secretly started and circulating ahead of our August 1st start date

Here's Nor'Easter, done with a ripple stitch, to look like whitecaps:

Here's August, done with Embossed Diamonds stitch, to look like Peridot gemstones:


Here's Special Delivery, our first preemie blanket, done in Garter Rows Rib, with a close up of the stitch pattern, which I love:





I forgot to take a pic of Garter Garden before sending it on to gmmarton, but hopefully she has a pic of her completed portion, which is ready to head out to Lisa1216!

Our super speedy knitter, gmmarton, has also finished her portion of Northeast Rainbow, which will be heading to kellee0302 soon!

I've cast on for Independence Day, and gmmarton has cast on for Save the Sound and Rainbow Sherbet

We are rolling, people!!!!

threesmom has shown us her gorgeous work on Mermaid Tails, I can't wait to get that and add another stunning color! What a great idea for a color palette.

Anyone else have blanket news or pics to share?

Well, thanks, Spikey! I've got two to share! "Garter Garden," done in garter stitch, was mailed out to Lisa1216 this morning. Delivery Confirmation #: 0306 0320 0001 5129 8440.

I also mailed out "The Northeast Rainbow," also done in garter on worsted weight, to Kellee0302. Delivery Confirmation #: 0306 2400 0000 8915 6248.

What fun!

Thanks for posting the photos of the other blankets. I can't wait to see what's coming in the mail!
