Yay! Excellent work, everyone!

Now, it's time for the blanket to come back home and get finished!

Oh My GOSH!!!

You guys will never believe what Remclave sent to me along with our blanket.
GLASS KNITTING NEEDLES!!


I feel like Cinderella!
What a beautiful, luxurious gift. I've always admired glass knitting needles, but never thought I would actually OWN a pair. Thank you, Remclave!

And, of course, we can't forget that the beautiful BLANKET was in the package as well. I cannot get over how lovely this particular blanket has turned out to be.


I looked all through the blanket, and it has PERFECT JOINS at every single section! How did we manage to do that? You wonderful knitters ROCK!!!

After a year of on and off knitting to complete our large Oddball Blanket, I have finally reached the last row!

Today, I am adding a crochet border, and our blanket will be ready to be donated.

I haven't been able to take a photo yet, because I've been under the weather lately. So, today, I put the completed blanket on my bed, so I could at least let you see how nice it is! I also folded it, so you can see the crochet border I added.

It's ready to go to charity!

Thanks for all that you've done, Sandy, to make this blanket come to fruition.

Make sure you get plenty of rest. Be well! You are in my thoughts!

Thank you Gail!
It feels SO GOOD to finally finish one of our big blankets.


Now, I'm on to the other 4 big ones, and 1 more lapghan. Then, our project will be complete!

It will be nice sending out our blankets to charity.

Ready to Mail!
Our blanket has been hibernating in my craft room for the past year, and I decided it was long enough.

So, I pulled out the blanket, and immediately started sneezing like crazy. I then gave it a good wash, and confirmed the recipient of our blanket. Now, it's packed up and sitting in my car.

Tomorrow, I'll be mailing our blanket to the Yurok Indian Tribe in California. They live in deep poverty, and will certainly appreciate our lovely blanket.
