Purple Mountains Majesty and Grand Canyon Sunset Are Alive and Kicking!

AuburnChick was busy this weekend. During a long road trip to Virginia, she cast on two baby blankets.

Purple Mountains Majesty was knit using Caron Simply Soft, and the color is Violet (9908). The pattern is called Reverse Stockinette Stitch Chevrons from the book, knit & purl.

Here's Grand Canyon Sunset. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft, and the color is Mango (9502). The pattern is called Purl Triangles from the same book (a GREAT stitch reference, by the way)!

Welcome to Our Blog!

Hello all!

This is a new blog, dedicated to the West Coast Oddball Baby Blanket project.

We began as a much larger group, covering the entire United States. The project grew to the point where our brave (and exhausted) leader decided to divide the country into regions to make the project more manageable.

Knitters from California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming, and Hawaii are participating! If you are a knitter in one of these states and would like to join us, please send us a message. We'd love to have you join our group!

We will be starting our blankets in August and have selected names and color themes for our new projects! We are eager to begin.

Please visit often to view photos.
