The Designing of Orange Julius

afghan in the works for homelessNow this is just plain fun. Not sure it can get more colorful then this. These rectangles and squares of orange, yellow, green, red, and variegated mixes come from: My Darling Daughter, Christine, Yvonne, RoseMarie, Carol, Kris, Pat, Anne, Joy, Louise, and Krystine from her garage sale find awhile back. The bulk of these fun bright colorful squares are crocheted though there are some knitted ones as well.

I must give some thought to what color to join and edge this ghan with. Perhaps off white/ivory/tan? I generally use darker colors for joining; but...given the amount of color here, might not this time. Then again, maybe orange? I edged the previous orange colorful ghan (Autumn) with a green. Will give this more thought and check my stash. Got an idea....do sing out and let me know.

A few more days til the end of the month when we'll temporarily close our Give a Square Campaign. Remember though it's not going away, it's just going to be dormant for awhile.

As of the writing/scheduling of this post (all posts are written and scheduled ahead), we have a ghan in the works, plus 6 designed and waiting in the wings. When we ending the year 2010 we had donated ghans. Two of those went to our friends at Pine Street, while the remainder to our homeless and abused folks at Faith Mission so much in need.

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?
