I don't mind the work. The Oddball charity projects were my idea to begin with, back in February of 2007.
You can read my first post about my idea here:
When the first blanket got started, it was like a wildfire in the forum, and everyone wanted to join. That's why we started four more big blankets. Next, we decided to make lapghans for battered women's shelters.
Then, Snowbear suggested that maybe we should make baby blankets, and we got going on those as well. The baby blankets were an even bigger hit, because they were completed so quickly.
My next idea was to make Oddball Shawls, and those are still going strong as well. So far, we've started about 20 shawls, and donated about 8 of them.
Next, I asked if anyone would like to make Oddball Pet Snuggles, and those were successful as well.
It's so cool to see all the different Oddball projects growing!
