Ooh how cool, Flower Power looks great! I'm really curious to learn what stitch patter everyone used for it. Especially the blue section, way cool design!

Some blankets were started by me. I didn't want to take the place of a knitter, so I only knit a small section...just to get the blankets started. It was my thought that we could incorporate some of that yarn into the blankets (I think I sent those yarns along). Most people have used their own, though.


Oh! Good to know!! I think other people weren't too sure either because there was just these little balls of yarn at the end of everyone's... anyways, I'll fix it before I send Fruity Pebbles along so the border-er doesn't have to do any extra work. Fruity Pebbles should be sent out by tomorrow morning, God Willing.

Yeah, I just left my section since that's what others had done and I'm new. I thought something I had read said someone would do them all at the end but maybe I read wrong.

The pattern is Pavilion. Takes several rows to start looking like anything, but I really like the end result!

Thank you everyone!
I was very surprised when I got a box in the mail and Friday and it was a beautiful oddball shawl for my daughter! I was able to take it to her on Easter Sunday and she loved it!! She said that she could really use it as she is cold alot now. What a perfect gift. Thank you all who worked on it and sent it to me. You are all wonderful!!

My daughter starts her 2nd round of chemotherapy on Monday. So far her blood work looks good.

Fruity Pebbles was sent off today to Danielle in CA. Confirmation number: 0308 3390 0001 0935 0204

Oh and just in case anyone was wondering. Today I asked about shipping prices. They said for the packages sent priority mail (you can get free envelopes from usps.com http://shop.usps.com/webapp/wcs/stor...-1&WT.ac=11695) it is $4.95 for the first pound ANYWHERE in the USA, + .65 for delivery confirmation = TOTAL $5.60. Over 2 lbs they will go by weight and distance. Also, they have small roughly VHS sized boxes that you can get for free too that are flat rate of $4.95 IF you can cram a blanket in there. Anyways, wanted to let you guys know some of your options.

The ladies in the Oddball Shawl group made it. Shandeh was kind enough to offer it when I asked if any were available. I have a friend who finished chemotherapy in November, and I remember how cold she was during those long months.

It's great to hear that your daughter's bloodwork is looking good. I will continue praying for all of you...

Lollipop made its way up to Northern California safely. Yay for walking into your home and finding a package -- particularly a knitting related package!
