This is why I love working with kids or visiting related babies--cuz when they start the pooping and crying I get to say "Here you go!" and hand them back.

It has been said that a thing worth doing is worth doing right, and you guys are doing charity right...Imagine all the love in the stitches of a gift so well-traveled and with the heart of such great people put in it.

Knitters are amazing givers!! Great idea Shandeh and I commend all of you for getting in on this

a friend of mine untangled some of the other yarn she "helped" with. she usually doesn't make a mess of it though. she just likes to hold it and cuddle with it. there are lots of pics of her with yarn in my blog, and my avatar is her hand in some yarn.

my goal on the blanket is to finish 5 rows tonight, and i am done with about 3 1/2.

i know i'm too late, but maybe i can join for the next blanket you start? i'd love to clear out some of my stash to help out with a good cause! i've got tons of extra yarn from various projects, and what a wonderful way to use it up. i saw this when the thread first started and completely forgot about it until it was too late!

please keep me in mind for the next one!
either knitting or crochet. i'm good with both!

i hope you find one of the rape crisis centers to give it to. thinking about going through something like that, you'd definately need a snuggly thoughtful blanket to keep you warm. you are all wonderful for doing this!

Here's the latest list, which was on page 7 of this thread:

Shandeh (NC)
lissalue (NC)
lestrella (NC)
GennyLynn1962 (KY)
feminine_earth (FL)
Lucy Fan (MI)
jhelanee (WA)
jeanius80 (WA)
SabrinaJL (NM)
Jan in CA (CA)
KathyinCali (CA)

Jillie (CA)
letah75 (CA)
newamy (OR)

carmabelle1191 (NJ)
HollyP (VA)
Cristy (GA)
projectgal (GA)
misha rf (NC)
Brrlracinbt (NC)
knitting4babybear (NC)

And here is the map that shows how the blanket will travel through the nation. It will begin and end at the blue square in North Carolina.


Sorry Zip! You're not #13 anymore, because knitting4babybear had to move to the end.

Love the photo, Melissa! I can see the yellow note I included, and my knitting! Great job on getting started on your rows right away!

Marce, thanks for the encouragement! Maybe you can join us for the next blanket!

itsjustmeghan, I'm sorry you missed this one! If I get enough people on the "pinch knitters" list, I'll start another blanket and get it going!

Love you all!

It might be cost prohibitive to ship it back and forth such a distance. :thinking: I wonder if we couldn't have two blankets going..one on your side of the Atlantic and one here? There are plenty of UK and European members that might be interested in doing this, too. :thinking:
I agree with Jan. Let's start one over there, Lieke! Do you want to check with other European members? Maybe we should start a new thread for an Oddball International Blanket.
Although I love this idea, I suck at organizing things. maybe some other european knitters
