Hi Nana!

I have decided to discontinue our Oddball Shawl project. I still have 8 unfinished shawls at my house, which I will finish up and donate when the need arises.

The last time one of our shawls was donated was 6 months ago. I believe our need for shawls has been met, so there is no need to start more.

If I see the need for more shawls in the future, we will start making them again.

Thank you all for your amazing work on our shawls!

Shandeh,I hope you will keep me on your list of knitters if or when you start the shawls back up again. I was really looking forward to working on one with you all.

I am limited to my knitting skills still , but I would love to help if you need any more knitters on some other projects . Just let me know.

Sandy,
If one were to try making a shawl this way, how big is it when it is finished and what method is used for bining off the edge?

Sure thing!
Sorry we weren't able to get any more started right now.

The shawl can be as big or as small as you want. It's just a basic triangle that gets larger with every row you knit. Just bind it off when it looks the way you want it to.

The bind off is just your normal bind off. It is bound off at the widest part of the triangle, so just remember to keep the stitches loose as you bind off.

I was just looking at the oddball blanket thread and it hit me! I am very limited to stitch patterns so why not sit down with my Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Knitting with 150 stitch patterns and just start teaching myself row after row some new stitch patterns and make a strange blanket ?

I'm off to get started

Have fun!
I used to do that too. It was fun. I learned a lot by trying out different stitches.

You will discover that sometimes the fabric will draw in to become more narrow, which will change the shape of your blanket. So, be sure to put in a lifeline yarn before you start each new section. If you don't like the way it looks, you can unravel to the lifeline and try a different stitch.

If you do cables, twisted stitches, bobbles, ribbing, or various other stitches, it will make the fabric more narrow.

If you do lace, it will sometimes make the fabric more wide.

The only way to know is by trying it out. It's a good experience to try different stitches, to learn firsthand how the fabric will react.

Hello all. I've been AWOL from KH for quite a while but I just wanted to come onto this thread and say thank you so much again for my beautiful Barbie shawl. I still love it and use it and get a lot of comfort from it
