Designing Desert Night

I still have plenty of designs to share with you. Remember, in a few posts I've mentioned a major design fest here in my living room. You should be seeing lots of your squares folks here, and in previous posts, as well as in upcoming posts. Did you miss them? Scroll back and see if you can identify some of yours. PLEASE PLEASE make a point to read the change in policy regarding knitting/crocheting and donating squares. Click HERE, or refer to the squares tab on the top of the blog.

I'm naming this afghan Desert Night. Many people feel that deserts are bland and without color; but....the colors are ever changing based on the time of the day, how sunny it is etc. And sometimes you have to study the scene for awhile to see how many colors there really are. These colors make me think of the west, the desert, the hues of pinks, purples, blues and more. I'm probably going to edge and join this ghan with a tan, off white if it's not too light. We'll see what's in stash and go from there.

  2. Thanks Sue for the visit, glad you're finding your squares. Wish more folks would visit, read, and comment and find their squares. Comments are really down which hurts the blog.

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?
