Our Friends at Pine Street

crocheted afghan
Above crocheted afghan is now done and mailed. You've seen this in a couple of stages. This is made up of squares and rectangles (various sizes) from my DD, Sandie and her DD Kate, Alma and several from anonymous givers from previous groups that disbanned and sent me their odds and ends. It measured about 56 x 52. I had the cream I did the initial edging with in my stash; and the navy came to me about a week ago from Emily (on RAV) who was de-stashing.

knitted afghan
This corner to corner afghan is knitted. Actually my first knitted ghan. Believe it measured right around 48 x 48. The yarn in this ghan came from a variety of people before making it to my stash. Donated yarn from my DD, Bunny, and Rae's mother. Lydia and Tony bought me yarn in exchange for me helping them out, one with genealogy and one for making a blanket for a grandchild. In addition to the above 2 ghans, I mailed a few 9 x 9 squares that Alma and I made to our Friends at Pine Street. These will be used as housewarming gifts for homeless who will have a roof over their heads. What a cause to celebrate.

  1. Love the way the varied squares came together. You work miracles with colors. The cream and the navy work well to bring it all together. Good job! The diagonal also looks great. I did a similar diagonal afghan, but in crochet, many years ago. The green edging really brings out the green in the body of the ghan.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
