Neon Rainbow and Summer Olympics

I also worked on Neon Rainbow. I did the yellow section, since I had the yarn from Neon Fun.

Here are a few pictures:

And finally, most recently - is Summer Olympics. We had a few patriotic blankets that had been done and all were beautiful. We started another one to do in Red White and Blue in honor of the Olympics and it's called 'Go USA'. I thought, why don't we do one in the colors of the rings in the Olympics symbol, and call it Summer Olympics. They liked the idea and asked me to start it. I found the perfect blue when Sandy, Larissa and Michelle met for our NC get together in August. (We raided AC Moore!)

I just finished it tonight and will mail it to the next knitter, who will do yellow, tomorrow.

Catching up on Charity knitting pictures!

I am FINALLY making the time to update this with some pictures. I've worked on a few blankets since I posted last.

I was asked to pinch hit on a Preemie blanket. My first Preemie. I was sent the yarn and needles so that I could cast on and get 'Lavendars Blue' started:

(This picture is after the second knitter - I did the light purple.)

And here is Lavendars Blue completed.
Since that yarn was given to me, I thought it completely appropriate to use on another blanket. This time it was used on Rainbow Sherbet.

Here it is with my section added:

Here it is completed:

I LOVE the frilly crochet borders. I wish I had that talent. Perhaps someday I will learn to crochet.
