I remembered reading that on the blanket forum. One more reason to love the ODD part of this project's name!!

No worries...all the other sections are also 4" (give or take) and is 21" wide. Sooooo, if I do one extra inch in the same colors and the last knitter does an extra row or so to make it a 21" square (or a 24" rectangle), would that be the best way?

I think that 24" was the target, but I doubt any of our pets would know or care that it was a little off.

Your call, Mulderknitter...that's why they pay you the big bucks.....

I think the knitter before you had the same problem. Just go ahead and do your 4 inches and send it on, or do an extra inch if you don't mind. I don't think it will matter much if it's a bit short.
Secksiebrat-you are scheduled to have Hugs n Snugs after SgtPam, would you mind doing the full 5 inches even though the beginning sections are only 4?
Um... yea... this one might be the example of ODD

Glad to add an extra inch!

If either of you will pm me Secksiebrat's address, I'll mail it on Monday or Tuesday.

Update on Snuggle Buddy
I'm almost done with my section (I'm doing 5 inches for what it's worth, even though the initial section is about 4 inches). I should be sending it out Monday or Tuesday--just need the address to send it to.

I was looking at the Snuggle Project website to check out a few places in my area that participate so that I can finish one sometime soon and donate it in my town.

Anyway.......they have some other patterns you might like. Maybe we could start one with the twisted garter stitch? It's still just one stitch, but it's "K in back loop of every stitch in every row". The note says that it "creates a firmer, plusher straight knit Snug".

http://www.snugglesproject.org/content/view/88/30/

if you haven't looked at the project's website yet, I'd encourage you to check it out.

I have PM'd secksiebrat and Jdee to see if they are ready. I will pm their addresses to you as soon as I hear back from them.
If you are a more advanced knitter and want to use one of the stitch patterns suggested, go right ahead I think we started it with garter stitch because it's easier when holding 2 yarns together and the new knitters don't have to worry about a pattern. Whatever makes you happy!

We've had LOTS of "oddball" examples in our projects.
That actually makes it fun, because we learn new stitches as we're going. Our project is a WONDERFUL way for new knitters to learn the craft of knitting.

And with the snuggles, I don't think the pets will mind if our blankets look "interesting".

Whiskers Wooby arrived today!! Gmmarton, thank you for the yarn! I'm sure it will come in very handy. And my apologies again about the zip code mixup.

Sandy, feel free to add me on wherever you need me.
