Hi you guys!
I'm not from Oregon, but I am the fearless leader of the West Coast Oddball knitters. Our thread is over in the Charity Forum.
Oregon falls under my realm, so if you'd like to have fun and knit a little something for charity, come on over and join us! We are currently working on baby blankets for hospitals, and you're only responsible for knitting four inches before passing the blanket on to another knitter.
