I've got one white and one colored (peach) so far. Do you want more white, more peach, or other pastel colors? No gray in my stash that's machine washable, I'm afraid.

PS. I like your square, did you use what My gran would would term the dishcloth method? ( start from a corner)
I don't know what it's called but yes, started in the corner ... 1 stitch, k1 p1 k1 into it, increase at each end of every alternate row to 10cm then decreasing every alt.

3 knit, 1 basketweave crochet. 2 plain grey. One pale green mix & one pale blue mix.

That makes me think...even if there are too many squares, we can always have another community knit-a-thon.

The soonest I can send ours is Tuesday, but it should be alright considering Roofs knitting from abroad! Yay!

We have kids and guys chipping in! (Hence - there will be a couple of plain squares).
I was thinking if i got the squares by the end of next week I could sew them together next weekend and send the finished blanket to baby slammer on the Monday? That would give Rufus (and Swisstree? Is she not in the UK too?) a few days to get creative.

I'm going out to dinner this evening so will PM people when I get back.

Any of those would be fine. I think we've probably got enough grey now anyway.

Re: Slammer's Pokemon Blankie - EF's 1st Ever Community Knit/Crochet Project

My kid is knitting gray at the mo, I think I will have gray/pastel violet, really pale, it is a one-off spun project, it is a bit hairy. Fuzzy. Maybe pale warmer colors later, the group will pick theirs on Tue.

Wow, this is fast.

Belgianmum - thanks fo doing the square math! 24 are done in no time! I bet we will have 40 of them, hahahah. Get busy making babies, EFers!

Mathnut - those are great picks, I agree - colors/white will brighten up the project now.

I've done 4 white so far (they look more ivory on the picture). The bottom left floral one looks roundish but it sews up square no problem.

Would you like more patterned ones or shall I stick with plainer?

Re: Slammer's Pokemon Blankie - EF's 1st Ever Community Knit/Crochet Project

Rufus reassures me, I know how to crochet but my knitting leaves much to be desired.
I think a mix of pastels in the greys would be lovely.
Must get my wool tomorrow.

Where do we mail these ?

Thank you. Mine are coming out at around 10.5 cm because I'm putting a border round them so that they're easier to sew together. Hope that's OK?

OK. I've done 6 for now. If I get the chance I'll do a few more.

Re: Slammer's Pokemon Blankie - EF's 1st Ever Community Knit/Crochet Project

I 'think' I have sent a PM to everyone who has promised to knit/crochet squares for the slambaby blanket.
If you haven't received one either I got your name wrong or accidentally forgot you so please send me a PM and I will rectify the situation.

Re: Slammer's Pokemon Blankie - EF's 1st Ever Community Knit/Crochet Project

I think it is horrifying and typical of today's lackadaisical parental attitude that so many adults spend their free time with their heads held low over knitting needles and crochet hooks while their poor neglected children play alone and partners wait for their well earned meal.

Re: Slammer's Pokemon Blankie - EF's 1st Ever Community Knit/Crochet Project

Hahahah...I missed that kind of humor, Longbyt.

It is horrifying to coax underage knitters and male participants (think of their reputation!) to chip in for a baby they do not know, my kid is sad already she won't see her squares keeping the baby warm.

Belgiummum - thanks for the addy!

Swisstree - fear not, we are into a plain endevour as well, but as an art student you know that it is the contrast that will make the plain bits completely worth their salt! Knitters who pm-ed me that they are doing something simple, I think it is wonderful! I will post ours when we are back in CH. Skiing cancelled though due to bad weather, more knitting time!

I am loving this project!
