I wouldn't mind at all to start one either. I think we should make sure of who is starting what. We might even want to discuss if there are some that we would like to do more than others. I think it would also be great if we do some rainbow blankets. I love the way those have turned out in the past. They are so colorful and cheerful. Just a thought.

Yup I was going to ask which ones you wanted to start... you've thought of what I was think twice now I think Kelly....

I've still have several (ok 5 with the premie ones... ) of the original blankets, so I won't start until Aug is actually here. But I'm going to start Autumn Leaves. Which ones do yall want to start?

When you said talk about some we would like to do more than others, did you mean what types of blankets? I think that's a GREAT idea and I love the idea of doing more rainbow blankets.

I have a few ideas for blankets and I would love to start one of them as well. I think I have maybe 2 sets of size 8 needles. And to follow suite they have food themes. lol

Chocolate mint- alternating chocolate brown with greens.
Cookies and cream - alternating chocolate and off white.
Olivia - using chocolate - soft pink - and offwhite
Charles - using chocolate - baby blue- and offwhite

I love chocolate. lol

I would like to start the cookies and cream.

OK so lets start with Cookies and Cream, Autumn Leaves and the ones that Kelly and Holly want to start. That will be 4 to start with.

Now who wants to knit on these? We can get them all set up so we are ready when we start them.

With the green and yellow ones we just want to make sure that we don't do too much of green or yellow. I never thought of that with the kids. I don't think that doing the green with brown will be too much(For the Chocolate Mint). With Banana Split, I was think it would be fun to do the ice cream and maybe end with red for the cherry on top. Don't have to do it that way though, I just love the cherry!

What great ideas everyone is having! I love it! We will definitely never run out of ideas with such a creative group!
As far as the yellow and green goes I think they will be ok as long as they are not the only color. She said avoid all green or all yellow. I'll call today to clarify.
I love the idea of the "chocolates" with the other colors. It's such a huge trend in home decorating now. They will look so chic!

I would like to start the ocean waves, feather and fan blankie- it needs a name. I was thinking something with Atlantic to represent our ocean. I'm drawing a blank.

If anyone needs a needle PM me! I have three available right now.

That's what I thought about the greens and yellows. Thank you for handling that part for us.

I'll try to think of a name... not the best at stuff like that.

All I was saying is this... we have made a really big list to start off with... and I just thought that there may be a couple that is "more important" to us than others. So we may want to start those first. I hope that makes sense now.

I also love the chocolate idea. Chocolate always make me feel better!! This is just an idea for the ocean blanket... I think maybe something as simple as "Atlantic Waves" might be nice. It is simple and to the point!! It would be nice if I could get a needle from you, HollyP. Since I am still sort of new... I haven't built up my stash of needles yet. And I hate to go buy one when we already have some. But I can... it's no big deal.


I also wanted to clarify something... are we only doing baby blankets and NOT preemie, or are we doing preemie also?

OK I think choosing which ones we want to do first is a great idea.

So which ones do you all like the best?

Oh and you all can start whichever ones you want to.

I do like Atlantic Waves for the ocean one.

We are starting off with baby blankets. We will add premiee ones down the road.

MamaDawn... I think I would like to start the M&M's blanket. (If that it ok with HollyP?) We both thought of it, but she posted it first. So if it is a problem, I can start a different one.

Here are the colors for M&M's:
Red
Yellow
Green
Blue
Orange
Brown

I think this would be a good order for the colors since Red and Brown are darker colors, I think it will help to anchor the blanket. Then you have a lighter color beside those (yellow and orange) and then you have the other 2 darker colors in the middle (blue and green). You can see the colors in this order on the M&M website. I thought it was a good combo.

I am currently working on a preemie blanket (Salt Water Taffy) and I am expecting a baby blanket (Sugar and Spice) within the next week or so. I will need to get those finished up before I start on this one for August.

Just let me know if this is alright with everyone. Thanks so much.

I think that's great Kelly! I have to say that I like having some blankets that have assigned colors and some that don't. It's different see them grow when you know the order of the colors and when it's something like the Happy Bluebirds and seeing it come together.

I'm so excited!
