Confetti

The last Oddball blanket for 2010 is appropriately called, Confetti. Each section is knit with flecked yarns. When I signed up for this blanket, I did not realize how difficult it would be to find a flecked yarn in my area. I found a lot of tweed yarns in dark colors, but nothing that would be appropriate for a baby blanket.


I settled for white with multi-colored flecks, but I had hoped to find a blue so the blanket would look more complete. The blanket was knit on size 9 needles, and my stitch is Checks and Ridges.
