Thank you for all the great name suggestions for the new Oddball blanket. I'm going to keep them on file and will use them as empty needles are available.

It has been snowing steadily here for the last week, so I decided to knit start a the blanket with a hope of warmer days. Thank you, Connie (FarSide) for the name suggestion.

  1. This yarn in this color looks absolutely fabulous knit in the checks and ridges stitch. I like the name...and it will be fun to see the final product; I'm assuming there will be some delightful "yellows" and some black mixed in the stripes. Very nice!
