My knitting has slowed to a crawl. I knew my trip in July would hinder my progress, but I didn't anticipate that even the Oddball blankets would stop coming. I rely on the Oddballs to give me a boost of enthusiasm and inspiration, but I haven't knit on one since June. I belong to two groups, so not having any Oddball for that long is very strange. The Oddball forums on KnittingHelp.com and Ravelry have been quiet all summer: I hope it doesn't mean this project is dying.
One of the coordinators contacted me in mid-June to ask if I was ready for a blanket, and I readily said, "Yes." I was told the blanket was sent, but two weeks later informed that the knitter had not sent it. The blanket has yet to arrive, and now the coordinator cannot reach the other knitter. I might as well use the yarn that I was reserving for this little Oddball.
Perhaps, it is time to find another projects for my Oddball tendencies.
