Great job, as always.

I love the photos you take of the completed blankets: the black background shows them off so well. By any chance is photography a profession or hobby of yours?

Thanks for the compliment.

Photography isn't an actual hobby of mine - in fact, I'm infamous for cutting off people's heads when I take photos! LOL.

I happened on the black background when I was shooting pictures for my eBay and Etsy shops when I had them. The black seemed to make most items 'pop' in the photos.

Thanks for thinking the photos are good. I do enjoy showing off all of the awesome work that this group does on the blankets.

Hugs :hug: and happy stitching,:knitting:

The first section is a gorgeous deep purple, but it didn't photograph well.

Well, this may sound like I have been a blanket hog, but that's really not true...it just worked out this way. But anyhoo...Mardi Gras, Cinco de Mayo, Superheros and Genius are on the road to their next spot. I have pictures to post, but haven't been able to get it to work for me the last 2 days....any tips? I'll keep trying, but I'm glad our blankets are still traveling around,..even during the summer months.

Nice! I love Veggie Tales. :heart:

I have some exciting news, my West Coast friends!
My sister has invited me to visit her in California this summer!!
:woohoo:
I'm not sure of the exact date yet, but I'll be sure to tell you as soon as I find out.

She lives near San Diego. So, if any of you are in that area, let me know. Maybe we can set up a time to get together at a coffee shop or something, and have a knit-together while I'm there.

I am so amazed at all the pretty blankets that everyone is busy working on. Great job to all! I am going to have to take a break from the Odd Ball Baby Blankets for the next year. On August 14th I begin working on my Masters in Education~Curriculum and Inclusion/Special Education. I have been wanting to go back and get my Masters for the last 17 years and decided that now was the best time to go for it. Thanks for letting me be a part of such a wonderful group. I'll keep checking in to see what your all working on and keep up the wonderful knitting. :muah:

I don't want to be a blanket hog, but I would love to knit on Summer Days if there is still a need for knitters.

Also, Veggie Tales is one its way. I didn't get a picture before I sent it along though.

I'm so excited about doing all these regular worsted weight blankets. It's putting a little dent in my stash of yarn, FINALLY!

Wow...it's been really quiet here lately. Hope everyone is doing well. I've been going gangbusters on some neat projects, but I miss my oddball blanket encounters. I've lost track on what's out there and what I've signed up for. Is there someplace I can check in with the current blankets? Is there a need for some new start up blankets?

Happily knitting away :knitting:

Hi Kris, :muah:

Most of the chatter is in the Ravelry group. I'm not sure if there are any blanket openings or not but you could ask Purlingkitten. Hopefully here is a link to the Western Region Oddball Blankethttp://www.ravelry.com/groups/western-regions-oddball-baby-blankets group.
