Operation Oddball

Two Oddball Baby Blankets demanded my attention this week. I used the Purled Ladder stitch for both of them, using Caron Simply Soft yarn.

Flower Power certainly did brighten my day with its cheery colors.

Jewel of the Nile was a bit frustrating. I had to frog it two times because a dropped stitch threw the stitch pattern off, then I ran out of the beige yarn eight inches short of the end of the blanket. Fortunately, I had some turquoise yarn that is a close match to the garter edge that was on the needles when I received the blanket, so I frogged back and added two garter ridges.

I never tire of knitting these little blankets.

Flower Power is finished.


  1. I posted the Oddball blanket that I worked on Ravelry. I also used the purled ladder stitch on my section.

  2. Very nice! I bet they will be very pretty when finished.
