Name me Ghan, please!

pink, tourqoise, green ghan in the worksThis is another ghan designed and waiting in the wings from squares from Sandie in Louisiana, RoseMarie, Pat, Kris, Anne, and Carol. There are both squares and rectangles, all are crocheted. I've racked my brain though and can't come up with a name for this afghan. I almost always name them....anyone with a suggestion. It's sorta pastel...but not with the green; probably mauve doesn't count as pastel either?

Not sure what color I'll edge and join with, possibly white? Possibly blue? Have to think further. I'll be busy for awhile getting these squares together for a ghan, but do want to say how pleased I am with the participation we've had and the fun mix of squares and rectangles. Just a few more days if you're hurrying to get things in the mail; then we'll suspend (for awhile), the Give a Square program. I do plan to reactivate it though, so stay tuned.

  1. how about "Stop and Smell the Roses" or "Rose colored glasses"

    A Rose by any other name would not smell as sweet.


  2. Amy,I like your idea for a name.I thought the rose colored squares reminded me of roses and the varigated ones reminded me of a river so how about River of Roses.It will be a beauty irregardless of the name.

  3. Fabulous you 2, love it, and the green is the stems and leaves of the roses that need the pretty blue sky to grow, and the river is blue...River of Roses it is. Love it.
    Thanks ladies!!! Gotta love team work.


  4. Just got another suggestion I like over on facebook, berry patch blue berries and raspberries was the thought.

  5. Love the name suggestions, but great choice with River of Roses - that's perfect.

    I've got about a dozen squares ready to go and should have time to get them in the mail today.

  6. Well so much for that idea. I just went to the page with info on where to send, and I see you don't want smaller than 7" squares. All of mine are 6". They won't be going in the mail today after all.


  7. Marie Anne, I can use your 6 inch squares, please do go ahead and mail. I just didn't a ton of really small ones so choice 7-10 as a range. I have plenty of smaller squares from a previous group, so it will work.

  8. Thanks for the note, Sandy. I already added another row of DC around the squares so they are now 7". They'll be in the mail in the morning.

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?
