As far as Disneyland, that was me who was supposed to cast on.



I had emailed the gal who designed the Olympic KAL dishcloth to see if she could design something that said Disney for me to knit up, but I think she got busy and never got around to it.

I'll try to get that cast on this week...gotta buy some more needles. Did we decide to use primary colors for it? Y'all tell me what you think.
Sure, I'll be happy to cast on Tropical Plantation. Do you want me to wait until we are sure we have enough knitters or go ahead and CO?

As far as the colors for Disneyland I like crayon colors such as --

Mickey & Minnie's Sweetheart Red
Tigger Orange
Pooh Bear/Hunny Yellow
Jiminy Cricket Green
Donald's Sailor Suit Blue
Princess Purple
Country Bear Jamboree Kanga & Roo Brown
Goofy Black (do we want black or do the border in black since it isn't very wide?)

Just my 2 cents --

Would love to hear everyone else's thoughts.

Would love to hear everyone else's thoughts.

I'm so happy that y'all are creative! That's a trait that I am lacking.

I love your color ideas!

I remembered having some red and dig a bit of digging. Voila! I found it! I think it's either Hobby Lobby's I Love this Yarn or Caron Simply Soft. I've lost the label somewhere along the way.

I'll try to cast on tomorrow. My hands should be recovered from the three hours I put in today working on the yard.



Oh, and please, do feel free to cast on for Tropical Plantation. I'm posting on our thread on Ravelry too, so I'm sure the slots will fill up quickly.

Who wants to work on Tropical Plantation?? First come, first serve.

We're looking for 5 knitters and a finisher (the 6th knitter can do the finishing too, if they want).

Ok...I just looked down at our previous posts, and I can see that we already have three knitters for Tropical Plantation:

auntcrafty (casting on)
pinnut3200
kaniger

Now we only need 3 more plus someone to do a border.

Okay -- I'll do some experimenting, see what I like best, & then CO Tropical Plantation. Do we want it to be a preemie or a regular baby blanket?

my 2 cents is the black would work best as the border. I wonder if we could come up with a border that looks like mouse ears.

I wouldn't mind being the final knitter and add the board too if you need me on the Tropical blanket.
