Thanks for joining, MaryB!

Last night, I started one of our shawls. I believe that we should make about 3 or 4 to start, and choose a "color scheme" for each of them.

Maybe Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter? :thinking:
(pastels, brights, earthtones, jeweltones)

Or Earthtones, Blues, Reds, Greens, Purples?

Anyway, last night, I started an earthtones shawl, with a rust colored Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK. Which one of you would like to knit next on the earthtones shawl?



By the way, here is our list of Oddball Shawl Knitters:

Dangles
Shandeh
lissalue
beckyrhae
PaperGirl
rennfamily
RiverDaughter
GennyLynn1962
mintdee
jeanius80
MaryB

Also, one more thing. I will not be sending knitting needles with this project, because I want it to be ready to give to a member of the forum when it is finished, without having to come back to me.

So, just use any size 8 needles you have in your stash. Straights, circulars, whatever will work. I have slipped all my stitches onto a strand of Debbie Bliss Pure Silk yarn. (a little piece of heaven!)

Thanks, MaryB!

I'll get it out to you as soon as I have enough energy to drive to the post office.

(I'm sick this week. )

Sandy, there is no rush. I read your blog and was aware of your dental and anti-biotic issues. Don't worry, Honey. The shawl will get done when it gets done. Be good to yourself for awhile-----you spend so much time doing things for others.

I can work on any shawl at any time, whatever is convenient for eveybody else, just let me know a few days ahead so I can start looking at yarn (such a chore).

Any suggestions from any of you on brands of yarn would be appreciated, I don't have a LYS so I would be getting it at WalMart or Michaels.

Michaels has some decent yarns that would work. Just look for some really good soft yarns in a DK or sportweight thickness. These shawls should be something any of us would enjoy having.

Genny, I looked online at the yarns Michaels offers, and found this good option for the Oddball Shawl: Patons Lacette
Here is a page that shows all the different colors of that yarn.
