The Sky's the Limit

The Sky's the Limit
 Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket
started September 2012
Blanket knit on traveling needles in four-inch sections. Knit on size 9 needles and 130 stitches.

I used Mary Maxim Starlette (Royal Blue) and (White) to complement the first section and to give the blanket a "planned" look.

After my friend Cheryl adds the border, this blanket will have been completed by two knitters in Texas, two knitters in Oregon, one knitter in Canada, and one knitter and one crocheter in Wyoming. It's a well-travelled blanket.

I have the privilege of beginning and naming a new blanket with the empty needles.

  3. You answered all the questions I was thinking while looking at the picture. I was wondering if the same person did more than one section - but nope. It's a lovely blanket - I think the stripes are perfect and love the mirroring at either end. Ideas for the new blanket churning yet? g
