Designing Afghans for the Homeless

donated squaresEmptied out all my bags of squares, many of which I've had for some time, leftovers from several groups that sent odds and ends when they disbanded so many of these squares I don't know who made them. Some are more recent from RoseMarie (the rectangles that are green), some of the pink ones are from Karen V. I've got this bagged and ready to start on when I complete the knitted color blocks from Rose Marie HERE. At this point I'm thinking of joining this with white, though I typically don't use white for the dirt factor. Maybe I'll go pink. Have to check my stash when ready and go from there.

Also, since I designed and photographed this I've received some more squares that might fit into these design as I get going; but one must start somewhere. As you can see this will be another of real peace meal work with the huge number of sizes of pieces to be put together.

  1. The one with the yellow flower comes from my house - I think daughter made it. Some others looks like familiar patterns, but I can't recall specifically sending them.

  2. I thought that yellow from your end. Thanks for confirming that. Many of these I've had a while and some never had individual names. Most were from an old group.

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?
