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!

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.)
