Help for the Homeless in every Corner

knitted afghan for homelessBeen working on this corner to corner knitted afghan for our folks at Faith Mission. Using the color clean method. lol I dumped my pink stash and organized it, then my green stash, an then the blue. Organized, re-wrap and sorted as I went through each colored bag. Using up the small balls of this and that. Rows aren't even as I had more of some colors then others, no pre-determined pattern, changing colors as I run out. I am now on the 2nd half, as I've started the decreasing a stitch per row as I go so we'll see how it ends up. Not sure whether there will be a color beyond blue; have to see when I get there. Normally, I make a point to have a right and wrong side; but here I decided not to, I've even changed in mid row when the yarn ran out. Kinda fun to just go for it.

Still working on the blue and burgundy too. Gotta keep the fingers moving, there is much need.

  3. I saw that in a thumbnail on Facebook and I won't tell you what I thought it was. LOL Now that I see the larger picture, I can comment that it looks very nice. I personally can't knit a straight line worth a darn yet make a corner afghan. Very nice work Sandy.

  5. Foxeni, you've got me curious...but perhaps it's not for publication. lol Thanks for popping in and leaving such a nice comment, appreciate it and hope to see you often.

    Lily, am with you 200%, it might become my favorite ghan to make because you don't have to count, and you really don't need fancy stitches to make the ghan interesting. The diagonal striping takes care of that, to my way of thinking.

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?
