Alma Mater

Alma Mater is probably the strangest Oddball Baby Blanket on which I have knit. I admit that some Oddball blankets cause me to wonder why knitters chose the particular colors for their sections; howeverthe person who started Alma Mater specifically wanted knitters to add the colors of their alma mater (high school or college).

Personally, I think this is not a very attractive blanket, and I doubt that much can be done to make it more appealing.

I chose to add the colors of my high school (red and white) because University of Wyoming gold and brown just didn't seem appropriate.

Alma Mater is a good example of a bad Oddball.

  1. It's a neat theme, but coming from Trinity's gold and purple... Hem. No thanks.

  2. I hate to agree with you on this, but it is not too pretty.....yet...perhaps something will redeem it.

  3. It looks warm and that is all that matters. I have a treasured quilt that my uncle made (a Singer repairman who loved to sew). He used leftover pieces of suiting material so it is black, blue, gray and brown. Ugly! Still, I love it and use it everyday. It's the love sewn/knit into it that counts!

  4. Well I can't get over ALL that you knit...do you knit in the summer? I use to knit a lot more than I do...actually it has been years since I really sat and made something nice (the last thing was a pair of slipper for hubby....he wears them...but is embarrassing that I made them!!) LOL

  5. Oh, Nancy...you are cracking me up! I often wonder about people's color choices and I really can't stand when things don't match! Like Katherine said though, it will be warm for a little baby and that's what matters.

  6. It think it looks fine. It's just more busy than normal with all the different stripes. Truly an "oddball" blanket.

  8. I agree, it's a lot like all the jelly roll quilts everyone is making - I don't like them and that's saying something since I like most scrappy quilts.
