Ahhhhh, The Pre-Holiday Madness

Despite the fact that everyone must be behind on holiday knitting projects (I know I sure am), our super team is still making great progress on our blankets! We've even had some return from blanket purgatory, woo-hoo!

In the interest of keeping the focus on WIPs, I've created a new blog for pics and lists of completed blankets. The link is included in the column to the right. This way, viewers who want can see all of our completed work (baby and preemie blankets), but the posts should be a bit less lengthy. Please let me know what you all think of this new arrangement.

Also, please help me welcome two new members of our group: sugermagknowya (Rav) and robkat317 (KH)!!

Here are the latest blankets in progress, including our three newest blankets, which still have some open spots for knitters (if you don't see a favorite here, look for it on the completed blankets blog):
