Shandeh--I'd like to join in too and I'm in Georgia--I'll PM you w/ my specific address. I'm adding the button to my signature too.

Would it be a good idea to get a mod to move this thread to the KAL section--or should we leave it here?

I think if we are going to set a limit on how much an individual adds to the blanket it should be in inches rather than rows. Maybe close sign-ups for this blanket once we reach a number such that 2-3 inches each will give a good size blanket? just my $0.02. (besides, since we are going to the trouble to mail it all over the country I would presonally like to knit more than just afew rows on it)

Hey all,
I'm totally in. I think this is a great idea!!!!! Perhaps we can post pictures on this thread as the blanket passes through our hands. That way the people who have already knit it can see how it's progressing.

Looks fun....oh, I 'stole' the button too.

Yay!!! Even MORE knitters! What a great bunch of people we have in the Knitting Help Forum!

I had no idea this would catch on so well and so quickly!

I still have several PMs to sort through before I post an update, and I just got home from teaching piano lessons. So, let me go have dinner with my hubby, then I'll be back with an updated list, as well as guidelines on how much we can each knit. Hey, if we need to start out with two blankets, that's fine with me!

Right now, we have 23 knitters, and there is room for just 2 more for a total of 25. With 25 knitters, we will each be able to knit for 3 inches on the blanket (that's about 18-20 rows of 300 stitches each). This will make the blanket measure about 75 inches long before I add the border.

If you want to join for this blanket, you'd better hurry!

If I get more than 2 responses, I will save the extra knitters as "pinch knitters", to cover for anyone who knits less than 3 inches, or changes their mind about participating.

When you receive the blanket for knitting, knit what you can, and let me know how many inches you were able to knit. I will keep a running tally of the amount knitted so far. If we need more rows knitted at the end, I will contact "pinch knitters" to help with the remaining rows.

Here is the updated list of Oddball Blanket Knitters!

Shandeh (NC)
lissalue (NC)
knitting4babybear (NC)
lestrella (NC)
GennyLynn1962 (KY)
feminine_earth (FL)
Lucy Fan (MI)
jhelanee (WA)
jeanius80 (WA)
SabrinaJL (NM)
Jan in CA (CA)
KathyinCali (CA)
zip (CA)
Jillie (CA)
letah75 (CA)
newamy (OR)
mjscott (MT)
HamaLee (MA)
Tammy6071 (CT)
carmabelle1191 (NJ)
Cristy (GA)
misha rf (NC)
Brrlracinbt (NC)

I've started off the list with the Charlotte knitters. If any of you don't have time to do it right now, I'll move you to the end of the list to knit before I add the border to finish it off.

GennyLynn1962, feminine_earth, Lucy Fan, and jhelanee have asked to be at the top of the list, so that's where they'll stay. Also, SabrinaJL needs to be placed where she is as well. I've tried to arrange the rest of the knitters in a way that makes sense geographically. (I'm the first to admit that I'm REALLY BAD at geography, so if any of you have a better plan for the list arrangement, let me know.)
