Oh, are you new? Welcome! I can't answer your question, I'm not sure where our blankets are currently being donated. Hope you enjoy working with our group!

Pinkalicious is cute!

A friend of mine was looking at our forum and wondered why someone didn't finish their sections. She was referring to the small section the blankets are started with. I told her that was just the way some of them were started. Then I started looking at some of the other regions blankets and noticed we're the only ones starting blankets this way. Guess it's not a huge deal because, after all, they are "oddball" blankets...but, out of curiosity, do they appear incomplete to anyone else?

I noticed it and wondered. Personally, I think they would look better with 5 complete sections and then the border rows but either way works. As you pointed out - they are 'oddball' blankets so almost anything would work.

If I remember right back when auburnchick was the coordinator to the group she had started some blankets with just an inch of pattern so more knitters would have a chance to knit on a blanket. The method just stuck for all the blankets.

I agree the blankets should have 5 or 6 complete sections (4 inches) and a border, if necessary. I am sure that anyone who agrees to start a blanket would not mind knitting a complete section.

As your leader may I say that the blankets that I started only had a garter stitch border of 6 rows at the beginning to let six knitters knit a 4" section. This allows for more knitters to participate on each blanket. It would be nice to end the blanket also with a garter stitch border before the final border is added.
