Oddball CARE Shawls (Triangle)
Well, I've come up with another idea. Alert the media!

As you know, we have 3 Oddball Charity Blankets going.

I started thinking that it would be cool to make an Oddball Shawl, and give it to a member of the forum who needs encouragement from us.

It would be made from any beautiful DK yarn you have in your stash.

I would cast on a few stitches, then do a yarn-over at the beginning of each row, to make it get larger and larger. It would be mailed from person to person, just like our blankets. When it is finished, it would be given to a person in our forum who needs our love "wrapped around them".

If you like this idea, please send me a PM with your mailing address, and I'll add you to the list of knitters!

We won't be able to determine how many knitters we'll need. We'll just keep making shawls until everyone has had a turn. There are LOTS of forum members who need our love!

Update
After working on several shawls, we decided to make a list of knitters for each shawl. Here is our list for our 6 shawls in progress right now:
