I'm happy to join in on this one. I am signed up for #4. If another new knitter pops in though, I'm happy to give up my spot. Let me know if you need my info again!

~danielle~

PS I figure at this rate there will be plenty of oddball blankets to knit for

Woo Hoo!

Thanks for joining, Danielle!

We are almost full of knitters for our new Oddball Blanket!

There is only room for 3 more knitters.

I cast on the 300 stitches tonight, using a size 8 circular needle, 29 inches long. I'm using some Lion Brand Wool-Ease I had in my stash. I remember buying this yarn in a small plastic bag at a thrift store for 60 cents total! It is certainly being put to good use now!

The color of the yarn is "Mink Brown", and it has a "tweedy" effect.

Shandeh, looks like we are off to a great start! Thanks for getting us going!

I wanted to let you know since you need the info, that my house is non-smoking and I do have a cat, although all yarn is stored in a closet where he can't access it. Hopefully that keeps it relatively dander-free! I do not have any allergies.

Can't wait to find out my place in line!

Thanks JamOKnit!

I knit for about half an inch last night, so it's definitely a decent start. I'll only knit a total of 1 1/2 inches at the beginning, because I'll add the other inch and a half when the blanket is finished. It's my way of bringing "closure" to each blanket. I start and end them all. (Hey....I'm entitled....the whole "Oddball Blanket" thing is my idea, after all!)

I gotta tell you....it's SO COOL to see these blankets all growing. And to think it was just a simple idea I had one day.

Wonders never cease.

You guys ROCK!

By the way, we still need 3 more knitters!
