WOW Shandeh you are quick. Are you going to start another blog for #2

I was just wondering (I might have missed it) have you decided on a charity for the first one yet? Do you know if we are going to give the second one to a charity in a different city from the first one?

I'm with NewAmy...I'm excited to be participating in the first blanket and would be happy to be involved with the second. However I'd like for other people to get the chance as well...so you can put me down as a pinch hitter!

If for some reason you can't get 25 people signed up for this blanket toss me on the list...but then feel free to take me off so that someone new can join late. And then I can go on the emergency list in case someone has to back out....I'm tired, hope I made sense!

Can I play too?
I'm pretty new to knitting and have never made a blanket, but I sure would like to try.

I was thinking about joining for #1, but got discouraged about being new etc.
I'd love to have a chance this time around...

Also someone said there's a blog for #1. Can someone post a link? It would be great to see what you guys did on #1, for ideas...

Thanks for joining Humblestumble, AnreeAce, beckyrhae, and REVS!

Just send me a PM with your mailing address, and I'll add you to the list!


HamaLee, I will keep you on the list, just in case!

letah75, I think that each blanket should get its own blog, don't you?
And I haven't yet decided which charity to give the blankets to. I think we should all make that decision together. When the blanket has progressed through a few more knitters, I think I'll put up a poll for people to vote on the charity they would like it to go to. (I will offer about 4 options.)

Each of the blankets so far will have to end up back at my place, so I can get my knitting needles back and make a final border around the blankets. Then, if possible, we will mail it to the KH knitter who lives nearest our preferred charity to make the presentation in person. Otherwise, we will just mail it to the charity.

REVS, Here's the offsite blog for the first blanket:
http://oddball-blanket.blogspot.com/

And here's the KH thread for the other blanket.

I've been thinking about what some of you have said, and you're exactly right. The ones who worked on the first blanket should let new knitters participate this time.

SO.....I'm gonna wait to see who is interested first. THEN, I'll make a list of participating knitters. We've just GOTTA be FAIR now, don't we?

Right now, we have 10 new knitters signed up. Let's see how many more new knitters we can get!

Hey! Maybe we'll have enough for TWO more blankets!
