Colorful Blocks for Faith Mission, stage 2

These 25 colorful knitted squares accompanied me this past weekend to and from St. Louis. You might remember this donation from Rose Marie HERE (though some of these colorful knitted squares came in her later donations too).
I've used her squares here and there making ghans for those abused and or homeless mothers and children and delivered them to Faith Mission. I made one entire ghan HERE of her burgundy and blue squares.

The sage green yarn used in the edging here is a gift from my DD, Christine. I was able to get all 25 squares edged on the return from ST. Louis trip, so they are now ready for stage 3 which is the assembly process. Stay tuned.

My car trip was a very productive one. On the way to St. Louis I worked on a Baby Blue Ghan for my nieces, soon to be born little one...you can check it out here.

**Pictures of all the ghans donated and those assembled thus far can be seen by clicking on the Give a Square Badge in the sidebar**

  2. Looks Great! I have a question about socks in March. Should they be handknit or are storebought preferred?

  3. Store bought for the socks because they often don't have a way of washing and reusing them flowerlady. You can read alot about our projects in the tab that read how can you help. More details etc.

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?
