Jeanius80 is almost finished knitting!

Jeanius80 has been working on her part of the blanket, and plans on mailing it to the next knitter in the next couple days.

Here is her portion so far. She's using Caron Simply Soft.

A Person-to-Person Oddball Blanket Handoff

Our Oddball Blanket was hand-delivered today to the next knitter in Washington state. Jeanius80 is just starting her two week visit with the blanket. I hope she has fun!

Our last knitter, jhelanee just shared some photos of her knitting, and the blanket looks great!

She wanted to see how large the blanket really is, so she spread out the stitches on two circular needles, and placed the blanket on her queen-size bed. Neat! Now, we have an even BETTER idea of how large our blanket really is!

The Blanket is now in WASHINGTON!

Our blanket has survived several trips through the US Postal Service now. Today, jhelanee in Seattle, Washington received the blanket in good shape.

She also got some goodies from the knitter before her, so she is a happy girl today. :)

The Oddball Blanket is getting FANCY!

Lucy Fan in Michigan has given our Oddball Blanket a touch of CLASS!

She chose to knit an INTERESTING knit stitch on her portion of the Oddball Blanket! She chose to do this stitch because it looked like a very simple pattern repeat. She said it was a really easy stitch to do.
