Zip has Zipped Up Her Portion of the Blanket!

Woo Hoo! Zip was FAST! And her knitting has added another touch of beauty to our blanket.

Whoever gets this blanket is a LUCKY person. It's GORGEOUS!
Oddball Blanket #1 - Zip Knitting

Zip used a vintage Phildar yarn she bought in a yarn shop about 20 years ago. It's a good yarn, isn't it? She used the stitch pattern from the textured cuff section of Knitty's "Knucks".

Blanket Connects Sisters Across the US!

I've just GOT to make a post about this, because it is SO COOL.

Zip is our current knitter in California, and she is MY SISTER!
I live in North Carolina, so we are on opposite ends of the nation.

Isn't it cool that our blanket has travelled all the way across the continent, and will have knitting from both of us sisters?

I think it's AMAZING!

STILL Basking in the California Sun!

Our blanket is having such a WONDERFUL time in California, that it doesn't want to leave!

KathyinCali just finished her section, and has mailed the blanket on to Zip!
