Thank you so much for the photo, DeAnzaJig!

I think this blanket will be picked by a boy, don't you? It looks great.

I'll check on the next knitter right now.

The blanket made it here today safe and sound! I was surprised it is much brighter in real life than the pictures. I had a yarn chosen but now I am rethinking it. I'm searching through my stash and stitchionary for the perfect yarn and stitch. I'll post pictures when I am done.

Thanks for the pens DeAnzaJig! I am a bit of a pen nut/dork. I'm always searching for the perfect pen. I haven't tried this kind yet.

Yay! Another safe trip!! Our blanket is doing well.

And Holly, you're right about the color of the blanket. It changes appearance with every photograph. You never know how it's gonna look. It's a chameleon!

I was looking through the journal today and noticed our blanket that our blanket was started one year ago yesterday.
I started my section with a medium blue I had in my stash. I think the yarn is Berella so soft from one of my first projects ever almost 10 years ago. I'm using the same stitch (the loop pattern) I used on Oddball # 1. I'm feeling very nostalgic with this blanket.

I'm happy the blanket arrived safely at your house house, HollyP!

The yarn you're going to use sounds perfect and I'm glad you're a pen nut!

I'm finished with my section! I would post a picture but my camera is acting up. I'm hoping it just the batteries needing to be charged. I'll try getting a picture later today after it has been charged! I can send it as soon as I have the next knitters info.

Thanks Holly! I did not hear back from the knitter after you, so I'm moving on to the next person in line after that.

I'll let you know when I have the next knitter ready to go!
