Be Mine

Be Mine
Western Region Oddball Baby Blanket
started January 2014
It has been ages since I worked on an Oddball blanket. The once prolific group has slowed down considerably since one member stalled several blankets for over six months.

Since I have now finished the blankets for which I volunteered to knit, I am going to take a break from the group because I need to rekindle my passion for the project.

Several weeks ago, I sent the group coordinator four blankets I started on donated needles as well as group needles from blankets I had finished. As the coordinator releases the blankets to the group, I will post photos.

Update: April 20, 2014

  1. I found it hard to knit in a group like this, especially if a blanket got stalled in the rotation, which when I participated happened on each blanket I volunteered to knit. For the most part, your group has done a good job at completing blankets. It sounds like a good time to take a break, though.

  2. That's very pretty. Those colors go nicely together. What size are those blankets?

  3. You have such a big heart and always go the extra mile. The blanket it is a keeper and hope the next rotation will go like it should and many blankets will be make.

  4. Pretty pink - looks like bubblegum. It's too bad when a group member can't complete their responsibilities, but also doesn't let the group know or pass the project back to the group promptly.

    You have give so much already. Taking a break is a great idea. We have enjoyed the snapshots of the blankets and their very clever names.

  6. Good for you, Nancy. Can't blame you a bit...and the break will be welcomed. It is a good project, however, when everyone does her job. I, too, love the themes and color combos you gals have put together. Some are so beautifully creative!

  7. I can understand needing to take a break. Those blankets take quite a bit of time and money for shipping expenses.

    This one is very cute. Love all those pinks.

  8. It's another beautiful blanket. I think it's great that you are taking a break, because it means you're taking care of yourself and finding some energy for some other time to participate. Whether you return to this project or not, you strike me as a person with great sense and consideration for others. You're hands on and society is pretty luck for it :) Happy Knitting!

  9. Beautiful! I love the colors. We all have to take a break at times. I had to get away from socks for a while and it has made all the difference in my knitting attitude.

  10. I think a break is in order! You've shared a lot of warm, loving care with the blankets and it's perfectly normal to need a change of pace, especially after a frustrating situation. That's a beauty and is sure to warm some baby girl's heart - and that of everyone who sees the blanket.

  11. Time to refresh and refuel. The challenge will be to figure out how to fill the time. I'm sure you'll come up with something though...maybe it's time to read some novels.

  12. I just hated being part of a group that was stalled by someone that just didn't care.
    Perhaps you can find or start a knitting group of local gals and then you won't have to spend so much on postage. I know if I lived in your town I would give it a whirl especially if I had someone to mentor me:)

  14. This is another lovely blanket. It's sad that you won't be doing this for a bit - but I understand the need to take a break. I'm sure that while you won't knitting this - you will still do charity stuff. You have a very generous heart like that. g

  15. What an adorable blanket! I agree with the gal who posted above. I think I'd look for a local group. The accountability will be better this way, and you'll meet new friends along the way. I'm sorry how things turned out. It's very unfortunate.

  16. I'm so sorry something like that happened. Hopefully, a new project will jump out at you and you'll find that mojo again.
