UK Oddball Baby Blankets
Several knitters from the UK have decided to make "Oddball Baby Blankets" for charity. The blankets have been coming along quite nicely.

Each knitter knits for 10 centimeters, then mails the blanket to the next knitter, with the stitches still "live" on the knitting needles.

When the blanket is complete, it is given to charity!

Here is our website, with instructions for the knitters in the United States. Hopefully, we will have a new website soon, just for UK knitters.

Nikki With regards to blogs I have no idea, but I think Sandi started one of the other groups off and then they took over once they knew how? So I think Sandi is a good place to start for info

So glad to see that things are going well here for you all!
You are just a wonderful group of knitters. I hope you find more winners like yourselves very soon!

About the blog, I will be happy to set one up for you, and then one of you can take it over. That person would need a Google account, so you can log in and update the blog. (It's free.)

Let me know who would like to take care of it. It will be difficult for me to keep it updated, since I won't be involved in the daily discussions and blanket happenings.
