Sugarmagknowya, I received An Apple a Day yesterday afternoon. Thanks for the gift.

I'll be knitting all day today because we are snowed in here in southern CT!

Yippee!

I have another day off from school due to snow and ice, so I’d like to start a new worsted weight baby blanket called Gum Drops. Though the name rings a bell to me, I don’t think we used Gum Drops before for a worsted weight blanket. I stand to be corrected, however, at which point Gum Drops II would be appropriate!

Anyway, the colors I’m thinking include: green, yellow, purple, black, orange and red. Gumdrops probably come in all different colors these days - these are the ones that I remember when I used to enjoy the flavor now and then.

I will probably begin my section using Caron’s Simply Soft in the color Sage.

Any takers? Please make sure you PM MotherHenKnits if you are interested.

Thanks!

I would like to make a challenge to all the Oddball Blanket groups.

Use my design ideas to knit two blankets for your group.

Blanket 1: “GENIUS”
Black, White, and Red

Blanket 2: “SUPERHERO”
Comic Book Colors

I think it will be interesting to see what each group does with this!
I will make a new blog, showing the progress of the blankets. Be sure to post photos, which I can use to highlight the work for your regions!

When the blankets are complete, I will send an additional blanket (knit by me) to your region, for you to donate in your area. So, everyone will be a winner!

1st blog ever for me
Help, please. I am trying to sign up for Oddball Knitting in Northeast NY and can't figure out how to get in contact. Best I could figure out is on this forum. But since I am a total novice in blogging and forums I really could use a hand.

Hello! Thanks for your interest in our charity knitting group!

I just moved your post to the correct spot. This is the discussion thread for the Northeast Oddball Baby Blanket group. Suziehomemaker is the region leader, and will need information from you to get you started with the group. I will let her know to get in touch with you.
