Apple of My Eye

Apple of My Eye
Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket
started December 2012
Originally, I planned to knit a red section on this blanket, but when the blanket arrived at my house, it didn't seem appropriate. Red would have been too much for this precious blanket, so I played it safe and added a stripe of light green.

Size 8 needles - 121 stitches
I used Caron Simply Soft (Pistachio) for my four-inch section
Stitch pattern: Checks and Ridges

Update: May 7, 2013

  1. The last several oddball blankets have been exceptionally pretty. Glad you went with the green. Red just wouldn't have worked.

  2. It's beautiful, but I do find it ironic that there's no red in an apple themed blanket.

  5. Well you could start another with red / pink apple colors. Funny - there are really only 2 green apples - golden delicious (which is truly yellow if you want to get technical) and green apples. Yet there are tons of colors in that blanket and it looks fabulous. g

  9. Is an Oddball blanket like a Round Robin quilt, that travels around to different people and they add a layer? I like the green you added.

  10. I agree with you; the red would have been a bit too much. The green you added was just right.
