Oh, heck, me too! Although towards the end of the list would be good, as I have several other projects going that I really need to finish first.

Do I need to send you my address? It might be easier than having to look it up, if you want me to.

stacy.duval, Thanks! I'll add you to the list!
carmabelle1191, I already have your information. Thanks, though!

Here's our updated list (not in order yet)

That's 16 knitters. We have room for 9 more!

I cast on 300 stitches for the blanket yesterday, and lestrella and I knit several rows. I almost have it ready for lissalue.

I'm using a very boring vintage gray wool yarn I had in my stash. It's very old Coats & Clark Red Heart Knitting Worsted, which is 100% Virgin Wool. I was thinking of dyeing it first, but changed my mind. I figure it will make a nice, sturdy beginning and end to our wool blanket.

I would love to join this Oddball too, if there are more knitters needed...but I haven't used wool before (I've knitted with acrylics for afghans)...so, any advice on what type to get?

Thanks!

Add me to the list, please! What a great way to help someone else (and de-stash part of my yarn mountain).

Just look for a worsted weight yarn that says 100% Wool on the label. You can find it at Michaels or Hobby Lobby, or your local specialty yarn store.

Thanks for joining, MaryB!
