Thanks Gail!

By the way....I received your package in the mail today. Thank you for the magazines. And you COMPLETELY surprised me with the Jo-Ann's giftcard!

I've never bought anything from Jo-Ann's before, so this will be FUN!



My hubby and I are gonna LOVE all these magazines. I think my stepson will like them too....especially the ones with photos of pretty girls.

Thank you again!

Yeah, I'm a frustrated photojournalist, I guess.

The Oddball Orphan Blanket was posted to New York this morning. Delivery Confirmation #: 0306 2400 0000 8915 6330. I took a photo but my camera's battery was very low, so I am in the process of charging my camera now and will post a photo later today or early tomorrow.

I worked up two sections: one in Caron's Simply Soft Off-White and another section in Caron's Simply Soft Brown. I used my favorite stitch these days, the Farrow Ribbed stitch. The blanket is quite colorful, and will make any recipient very happy.

Thanks for including me in this project, Sandy!

Wonderful! Good luck knitting your section.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have looked at the required measurements for our blanket, and realized that it needs to be longer than I planned. So, I need 4 more knitters.

If you have never knit an Oddball Project before, just send me a private message, telling me your name and mailing address, and I'll add you to the list of knitters for our charity blanket!

If you have knit one of our blankets before, you are also welcome to join in on this one. The more the merrier!
