Our Blanket is Now in OREGON!

Yippee! Our postal service is back on track now, with a superfast shipment to AnreeAce in Oregon. :) REVS was VERY good to her, sending lots of NICE goodies along with the blanket, including Girardelli Chocolates, a lovely card, 2 skeins of blue & purple sock yarn from Royale Hare, a Burt's Bees Hand Care Kit, and 5 hand-made stitch markers.
Extra goodies sent with Oddball Blanket #2

- REVS is done!!!

Well REVS finished her portion of the blanket and it looks WONDERFUL!!! She knitted her portion in the Butterfly pattern out of the Vogue Stitchionary. So our very pretty, much loved blanket will soon be winging it's way to Oregon!!! Here are some pictures.

An up close and personal look at the pattern:

The whole blanket as it is so far:

A look at the "wrong" side.

Ok, we are now 3 knitters down! AnreeAce is the next on the list. It should be a pretty quick turn over, as the blanket will be traveling form Washington State to Oregon State. Since it won't be traveling internationally, it should be less likely to morph.
If anyone is interested in participating in Blanket #5, there are still 11 spots open. Here is the link to the forum for the fifth Oddball Charity blanket so people can sign up.
These are such special projects to participate in, I would highly suggest signing up! The men and women of KH are such amazing and giving people. It is a privilege to be a member!

- Back in the USA!

Hey all,

Well the blanket is back in the USA. Dangles decided not to try her luck with the Postal Service, as our blanket might have turned into a dancing she hand delivered it to REVS. Very cool of her. Dangles and REVS met up, did some yarn shopping (of course) and went out to dinner. According to REVS, "It makes the whole thing so much more special if you can put a face to the previous and next people that will knit on this together, creating such a lovely piece of love and compassion."

Here are pictures of the blanket and the extra presents that Dangles included:

Very cool! Our blanket is making progress, and the compassion and love is spreading. Truly this will be a special give for whomever receives it!

Pictures of the blanket!!!!

Hi everyone! Dangles has posted pictures of the blanket, and it's beautiful. The color she chose goes wonderfully with the color Shandeh started with.

- Ready to leave Canada

Hi all. According to Dangles she has finished her portion of the blanket!!! That means it will soon be leaving Canada, and start it's travels to the great state of Washington. As soon as there are pictures, I'll post them. But here is what Dangles said she used:

"Colourwise: I ended up going with "Lt Country Blue 9709" (Caron Simply Soft) It just went better with the colours that Shandeh had started the blanket with. It almost looks like a "setting of sun" colours now".

I'll bet it's beautiful, and I know I can't wait so see the pictures.
