Oddball Baby Blanket now a FO

FO Friday post

cupid oddball finishedCupid, the Oddball Baby Blanket is now complete and will soon be on it's way, traveling once again. It will be heading to Minnesota, and after being wash on it's way with many others to a hospital for babies in need. I blogged about this blanket, the process and the purpose for my WIPW HERE.
close up of the border for oddball blanketHere's a close up of the border which is comprised of a row of sc, followed by a row of dc cross stitches, followed by a row of shells made with 5 dc. I believe it does pull the blanket together a bit, not as much as I had hoped. I see the yellow (Xanthic), but the blue speaks aren't as visible as I would have liked. I like it better finished then when I began, but it's still not a favorite for me.

Items to work on: Afghan for Bridge and Beyond, Washcloth for Bridge and Beyond, Scarf for...maybe myself?, Scarf for Red Scarf Project, but have the urge to start something new....I'm seeing and hearing some yarn calling out to me. And, it's calling pretty loudly, so don't know if I'll be able to pretend I don't hear it much longer.

  7. The blanket turned out great. The edging is very pretty and ties the colors together. I am sure it will be well-loved and appreciated.

  8. The blanket looks great! I'm sure the baby who receives it will love it, and the parents may love it even more so. =) Unfortunately, postage is more of a problem for me than yarn at the moment. I still have a bit of a yarn stash but our finance situation is pretty rocky. No worries, we'll get back on our feet- we always do. As soon as things get better I'll have the means to make a donation to your wonderful charity. And I'm hoping to make a few donations to the hospital where my son and myself were born as well. I'm quickly realizing I never use half of the things I knit and crochet, so I may as well start knitting and crocheting some things for those who need them. :)

  9. I think this is a wonderful craft to master and it looks very soothing to the individual that is doing it. I watched one of our church members do it while in a waiting room of the hospital and she explained to me what she doing and it kind of made sense to me. She was very quick at it too. Very nice blog Sandy!

  10. Thank you autumngeisha, appreciate the kind words.

    Anna if you later decide you want some help with yarn, do let me know. Hugs for your attitude.

    Hi Eddie, many thanks for popping in. I found it very soothing to knit and crochet while Mom was doing so poorly, and as she dying in the hospital. I spent many hours there, and it's nice to have something useful to do with your hands.
