REVS took this photo with her cellphone, because she doesn't have a digital camera available right now.

Out of Carolina, and On to California

Our NEW 4th Oddball Charity Blanket has completed its mini-tour of North Carolina, and is now travelling ALL the way across the nation to spend a little time with pandaca in California!


Shandeh used a vintage variegated yarn, and Lissalue used a solid blue yarn that works well with the other yarn. Silly us....we forgot to take a photo!

Hopefully, pandaca will take care of that for us!

A New Beginning

Oh well....our blanket disappeared in the US Postal system. :(

Let's have a moment of silence for our deceased blanket.

OK.....let's dust ourselves off and start over!
Shandeh Knitting

I found some really cool variegated yarn in my stash, with a nice blend of purple, teal, and pink. The only circular needles I have available are size 10, so that's what we're stuck with.

ANOTHER Oddball Blanket!

Believe it or not, the members of the Knitting Help Forum are making ANOTHER Oddball Blanket. This will be our 4th blanket.

If you're wondering what an Oddball Blanket is, here's all the facts:
We cast on 300 stitches with a size 8 or 9 circular needle, using washable worsted weight yarn. Each knitter knits all the way across the row over and over again, until 3 inches of knitting has been done. When each knitter finishes their portion of the blanket, they mail it to the next person on the list.

Here is how the blanket will be traveling throughout the continent, beginning and ending with the blue square in North Carolina.
Oddball Blanket #4 Map

We are being creative, choosing different knitting stitches and different colors of yarn. It's neat to see what each person decides to do with the blanket when they receive it.

Also, sometimes we include extra gifts for the next knitter, just for fun.

OH! And we aren't just making the blanket for ourselves.
It will be given to charity when we finish.

So, without further ado, here is the beginning of our 4th blanket!
The first section was knit by Sandy in North Carolina.
2nd Attempt at Our Oddball Blanket #2

Now, the blanket is traveling to BostonBecca in Massachusetts!
