So now, everything is right in the world.
Dangles in Canada is now able to knit her portion of the blanket, so we'll keep you updated on the details as the days go by.
I'm setting aside the other blanket I started, so we can make ANOTHER blanket together. :)

But, we're talking about a lot of hard-headed knitting women here, with LOTS of yarn on their hands.
So, we're plugging along.
Here's our SECOND beginning to our Oddball Charity Blanket #2
(edited April, 2007 - this will now be the beginning of our 4th Oddball Blanket!)

Apparently the Monkey is really purple, Dangles stated the lighting makes it appear pink. You should be able to view the video on the right hand side of the blog. I believe all you need to do to see the monkey in action is click on the thumbnail on the right hand side.
If not here is the link to the monkey on youtube.com.

We haven't updated in a while because the blanket was en route. Now we all thought it was en route to Dangles in Canada....but somehow the blanket ended up in Italy?!? Here is Shandeh's post on the subject: (get ready for a giggle)
We have some bad news about our afghan.
It was mailed to ITALY by mistake!!!
Ya gotta laugh about it though. I bet that lady in Italy is scratching her head trying to figure it out.
(Dangles got the package that should have gone to Italy today, and it has a singing monkey inside!)
SO......back to the drawing board....or should I say "knitting" board?
I can start another one and mail it to Dangles. No problem at all.
But, the sad thing is.....my gift to Dangles is gone now.
Just to let you know, it was a LOT of vintage knitting magazines. Oh well. I have lots more things in my craft room that I can share.
So there we are, to quote Shandeh "back to the knitting board". :-) Now we know why it was taking a while to get to Canada. I don't know if they know who it went to, or if it'll ever make it's way back to North America, but if it does it will be the most well traveled charity blanket in our Oddball history.
Another blanket will be begun, and sent out. So knitters stay strong, your turn will come, just a little later than expected.
