What a beautiful stitch! I have enough on my plate right now, but just wanted to say how pretty that stitch is. The oddball blanket idea is awesome. It is like a stone in the pond, it is never the same, and it's effect is wide spread.
Thank you for such a wonderful idea that is helping litterally 100's.

Hugs

I would like to join in. If you happen to get more "new" knitters to the oddball projects, please allow them to have my spot. I love knitting these projects but I also know what it's like to do it for the first time!

Thank you all so much for joining!

Now, we only need 3 more knitters to have enough to make our Orphan Blanket.

To anyone interested in that stitch I am pretty sure it is the quilted lattice stitch. I just finished using it for the Red Roses baby blanket. Here is a link to a pattern. Enjoy!

Thanks Sarah! I usually arrange knitters geographically, so the postage is easier for everyone. When the blanket gets big, it becomes more expensive to mail.

Also, keep in mind that each knitter has the blanket for about two weeks, and there is travel time involved after each knitter, so the project can sometimes take a year. (Sometimes our blanket gets held up in the mail)

If you want to join in, just send me a private message, with your name and address.

Thanks!
