Oddball Spotlight

In a comment, Judy D asked, "How many Oddball blankets have you worked on?" I didn't have a clue, so I checked.

To date, I have worked on 70+ Oddball blankets. Here is how it breaks down.

Based only on my blog posts since 2008, I've knit on 54 blankets (listed below) in conjunction with the Oddball Knitting Groups. In 2008, I knit a 4-inch section on 25 blankets; in 2009, 15 blankets; in 2010, 14 blankets. Click on the "Oddball Knitting" tab in the right column under "Posted Topics" if you want to see photos of these blankets. I probably knit on blankets prior to my blog, but the forum posts on for 2007 have been deleted, so this cannot be confirmed.

In addition to the Oddball group blankets, the group inspired me to complete 16 blankets on my own, which were then donated to the group. They include:
Bubblegum  (2008)
Lime Sherbet  (2008)
Crayon Box  (2009)
Creamsicle and with a border  (2009)
Arctic Ice  (2009)
Chutes and Ladders  (2009)
Eagle's Flight (2009)
Little Princess  (2009)
Snowdrop  (2009)
Lily of the Valley  (2009)

  3. I still think you knit in your sleep as well as your waking hours:)

  4. WOW! I'm surprised your needles don't melt because you knit so fast! I am so S-L-O-W that melting will never be a concern for me. You have such a great heart for charity... keep up the good work!
