Oddball Blanket #4 is COMPLETE!


#461

Thank you so much for the photo, DeAnzaJig! :muah:

I think this blanket will be picked by a boy, don’t you? It looks great. :slight_smile:

I’ll check on the next knitter right now.


#462

I agree! It would be perfect for a boy.


#463

I shipped out the blanket today with delivery confirmation.


#464

The blanket made it here today safe and sound! I was surprised it is much brighter in real life than the pictures. I had a yarn chosen but now I am rethinking it. I’m searching through my stash and stitchionary for the perfect yarn and stitch. I’ll post pictures when I am done.

Thanks for the pens DeAnzaJig!:hug: I am a bit of a pen nut/dork. I’m always searching for the perfect pen. I haven’t tried this kind yet.


#465

Yay! Another safe trip!! Our blanket is doing well. :slight_smile:

And Holly, you’re right about the color of the blanket. It changes appearance with every photograph. You never know how it’s gonna look. It’s a chameleon! :teehee:

I was looking through the journal today and noticed our blanket that our blanket was started one year ago yesterday.
I started my section with a medium blue I had in my stash. I think the yarn is Berella so soft from one of my first projects ever almost 10 years ago. I’m using the same stitch (the loop pattern) I used on Oddball # 1. I’m feeling very nostalgic with this blanket.


#467

Thanks for sharing that, Holly! Gave me a sweet happy feeling inside. cloud9

Happy Birthday, Oddball Blanket #4!!
:slight_smile:


#468

I’m happy the blanket arrived safely at your house house, HollyP!

The yarn you’re going to use sounds perfect and I’m glad you’re a pen nut! :lol:


#469

I’m finished with my section! I would post a picture but my camera is acting up. I’m hoping it just the batteries needing to be charged. I’ll try getting a picture later today after it has been charged! I can send it as soon as I have the next knitters info.


#470

Thanks Holly! I did not hear back from the knitter after you, so I’m moving on to the next person in line after that.

I’ll let you know when I have the next knitter ready to go!

Here it is!! I ended up doing 2 sections since I was keeping it a little longer. The first section I did was using Berella So Soft and the loop pattern . The second section was made using Bernat Camo in Desert Sand and the double woven pattern. I’ll be sending it to BostonBecca very soon. I just have to get a box!


#472

Yay! Thank you for knitting two sections, because a couple of our knitters have not been able to participate as planned. :slight_smile:

:cheering: :woohoo: :cheering:


#473

UGGGH!!! I went to the PO today to send the blanket and it was closed! There was a sign on the door something about a small electrical fire and that the PO would hopefully be open in a day or two. I guess I will be sending from a different PO tomorrow. I’ll let you know when it is mailed!
