Thanks, again, for all that you have done, and will continue to do, for so many! You're an Angel!
Oh!!! Thank you SO MUCH, Gail!
You have been SO helpful to me on all the Oddball projects.
You're an inspiration.

Do you have a paypal account Sandy? I wouldn't mind pitching in 5 bucks to help with the mailings as well. I'm sure there are others that feel the same way! Thanks!

Thanks Danielle!

There is a paypal button for donations on the main Oddball Blanket site. I've never received any donations from it, but it's there just for this reason.

Just scroll down that page, and look for the DONATE button under my profile photo on the right side.

Hi Sandy,

I've been up in Vermont for the weekend visiting my family and catching the beautiful fall colors...so, I never got to follow-up on my offer.

I will probably send you a personal check, if that is OK. I believe I have your snail mail address in my address book. If not, I will PM you tomorrow.

Thanks!

Our Blanket is FINISHED! :)
Yay! This morning, I finished knitting the last section of our Oddball Orphan Blanket. Now, it is being washed and dried in my machine, and will soon be in the mail to the Josiah & Bethany Children's Home in Mexico.

Here's our beautiful blanket!


I apologize for the delay in finished it up. I've been dealing with some health issues for the past year. This past month, I decided to just do as much as I can on the pile of large blankets that need to be finished. So far, I've finished two of them, including our orphan blanket!

Thank you to all the amazing knitters that participated in this project. You rock!

I've also cast on another blanket for the orphanage. If you would like to join in on that one, just let me know. Each row will have 200 stitches, and each knitter will knit for about 4 inches. We will need about 15 knitters. Here is the discussion thread to sign up for that blanket: http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...37#post1299037

Here's the first section:
