You can add me if you want. I can do the crochet border too, and start another blanket.

The Charlotte, NC Oddball Baby Blanket, named "Kaleidoscope" is almost complete! Now, all I have to do is add a crochet border.


Thank you for knitting two sections, Beepr!

Crochet Borders for Oddball Blankets
I just started a new discussion thread, where we can post patterns for making crochet borders for our blankets!

Hey ladies! I have come down with a kick my booty into next week cold. I have not gotten a stitch of knitting or anything done. I do have the list for Day at the Beach written out, but I've been doing a lot of organizing and can't find were I put it. lol! As soon as I find it I will post it. I still need to cast on for it.
Hope everyone is else is well! I won't be around much this weekend and part of next week. I'm having a house full of company.

Poor Holly! I hope you get better SOON!

I've been knitting like a crazy person. Making wraps and shawls to wear when I go to California next weekend. And I started a couple Oddball Pet Snuggles, and I'm knitting a sweater for the Bernat Blog, and test knitting and crocheting a couple things on Ravelry.

I've been staying home all day long, most every day, because my piano students have been out of town. I'm trying to lose some weight, so I haven't been eating a lot. Drinking lots of water, and eating lots of veggies and fruit. I've also started drinking the cheap version of Ensure nutrition shakes and taking iron pills, to help me have more energy. And I've noticed a difference, so I think it's working.

Next Friday, I'll be flying to California, so I'm mailing a package ahead of time, containing all the clothes and shoes I'll be wearing. Should be cheaper than paying for luggage to be checked in. I think it's crazy that they charge for luggage now.

When my visit there is over, I'll just throw all the dirty clothes back in the package and mail it back home. At least I won't have to worry about losing my luggage!

My plan is to just have one carry-on, plus my CPAP machine in a separate bag. (they don't charge for medical stuff like that)

Wish me luck!

The Crayola blanket, for the Charlotte, NC hospital is back at my house now. Thank you, ewalker, for knitting the last part of the blanket! Now, I just have to add a crochet border, and give it to the hospital.
