If you need some different colors of yarn, please let me know. I would be more than willing to send you some. Perhaps, if you discover that you want a certain color for a blanket, the knitter before you could send it to you.

The wonderful thing about these blankets is that they are called Oddball for a reason. The colors get crazy, and so do the patterns. Don't sweat it...everything will work out fine.

As far as starting a Pacific Blues, that sounds great...and perfect for where you are!

You can use size 8 or size 9 needles. I can send you some, if you need.

Do we have volunteers for Pacific Blues?
I have to check at my place (house/pet sitting for employers) to see if I included my 8s in the boxes I just received in the mail. I'll check tomorrow when I drop some things off.

I like the colors you mentioned for the Grand Canyon, too. I was just in AZ last weekend.

Like the Purple Mountains Majesty -- purples are my favorite colors.

I'm willing to knit on any of them. Will wait for others to decide what they would like to do & let you know about the needles & yarn.

I'll be happy to work on Pacific Blues! My favorite colors.

It must be a very hard life if one is allergic to metals, I can't even imagine such a thing.

Don't care about the size of needles I work on, as long as they are circulars, which I know we use.

Knitting, whoo hoo!

Thank you, all, for your enthusiasm! I'm totally psyched to get things going!

I can send needles and yarn to anyone who needs it. Shandeh just put a package of them in the mail to me. I should receive it on Monday or Tuesday.

So far, I have Ladylou and possibly auntcrafty as needing a set. Anyone else?

I'll work on Grand Canyon Sunset, Desert Sand, and Purple Mountains Majesty

I will be ready to go in August.

Yikes! August is only two weeks a way! Where did the summer go?

Just to let you know, I sent a bunch of plastic circulars to that particular person last week. (Sorry to spoil the surprise)

So, she will have a few to choose from at her disposal.

I found Clover wooden size 8 (24") & size 9 (29") at Ben Franklin's this afternoon, plus bought 5 different colors of the Caron Simply Soft, so I'm good to go whenever you would like me to.

That's awesome!

I have a couple of questions to ask Shandeh. Let me get some specifics before we cast on for our first blanket.



Oh, here's a list of knitters for Purple Mountains Majesty. I plugged in the names of those who mentioned that they want to work on it, along with the names of other knitters. Let me know if you need me to rearrange the list.

I just created a blog for our project. You can find it here: http://westcoastoddballknitters.blogspot.com/

It's in its infancy and will get better as we go along. I'll be adding various elements soon.

Hey there, I am signed up to work on these blankets. I would like to work on the Disneyland themed one if possible. Am I correct in thinking that Caron Simply Soft is the yarn of choice for these?? I don't think I have any in my stash but should not be too hard to acquire some. Please enlighten me. Thanks Becky
