Where to next?

I've finished my strip - Chevron Eyelets pattern from Jan Eaton's book 200 Knitted Blocks - you can read more about it, and see a bigger picture of the rug so far, on my blog.I've emailed Peta-Anne, who is next, to confirm your postal address - could you let me know? I'd hate to post it off to the wrong address!

Blanket update

I received the blanket last week from Susan so thought I'd post a quick pic to show everyone how it is going, along with the yarn I'll be using - not from stash, I'm afraid, because I don't actually have much 8ply machine wash yarn in the stash (and definitely don't have any in pinkish shades, which this yarn is, although it looks quite red in the picture!). I wasn't sure how much would be needed so if I've got leftovers I'll stick it in with the blanket for those still to knit to use, if you want!Hopefully I'll have my bit done in the next week or so. Am finishing up stuff for a swap right now, and then have to decide on a stitch pattern - everyone has done such a lovely job so far!

been and gone!

Well I received the beautiful rug on Wednesday morning and by the next morning I was darning in my ends and putting some 'energy food' in for the next recipient! We have a bit of lost ground to cover that we've lost over Christmas so I'm putting the challenge out to the next people on the list to help us make up for the lost ground and do their best for a speedy pressure!

I made my very simple moss stitch section using Bendigo Rustic in pink opal and it was nice and quick and a pretty colour. I also love how warm the blanket kept me as I was knitting it as we had a little bit of a cold spell down here in Melbourne.

Happy knitting........

Yay! The rug is on the move again!!

I just received an email from Lesley, who attached some photos and let me know that the rug is on it's way to Corrie who is all set to knit the next bit. Have fun Corrie! And for the rest of you, here's where we are up to.
Thanks Lesley.

Where oh Where could it be

Hi everyone - Just thought that I would pop this up. Where is the RUG now??? Thinking that we have not heard anything about it in almost two months and with Christmas and the MAD season over it should be back on the road again.

Joy - when are we going to get the next one on the road - If you want me to start it I am happy too.

Regards Kylie
