Right now, we've started working on a couple baby blankets, and we're getting ready to start several more!

One type of blanket is just a simple straight row afghan style. Some of us are just knitting each row, others are using a special design.

Another type of blanket we're gonna try is called the "Log Cabin" blanket.
Here's an example of one:

I'll post the names of all participating knitters soon!

Oddball Baby Blanket Knit-Along!

Members of the Knitting Help Forum have decided to make baby blankets for charity, using washable yarn in our stash. We each work on the blanket, then mail it to the next person, for them to continue working on it.

When the blankets are complete, we give them to charity!

Snowbear started us off, borrowing the idea from Shandeh, who came up with the idea making full-size blankets. The baby blankets are much quicker to complete, and fun to work on!

Now, Snowbear is having some health issues, so the rest of us are taking care of things for a while.

Get better, Snowbear!!
