Help me Name This Afghan, Vote

This one is in the works.  The strips have been edged and they're almost all crocheted together.  When Darling Daughter and I played around with these strips from Katie J we came up with several possible names.  Primrose, Dusty Petuna and couldn't decide which name we liked best.  As I've been working on it, I also thought of Desert Rose.  **edited to add Dorothy's suggestion of Rambling Rose.  Great, now we've got 4 names to pick from, lol.    Need to finish hooking it together, and add as many rows as I can with my stash appropriate colors in order to add some width.

This soon to be named ghan has traveled just like Arapaho through several states.  Hoping to get it finished in time to launder and block along with Arapaho.

Please add your thoughts regarding the best name for this afghan.  Like the others it will be donated to Homeless Families Foundation.

Still time left in January folks to make slippers.  I've added a nice link to a sizing chart a new member Trisi found for us.  Check it out in the slippers tab.

**If you've not had a chance to read goals, changes for 2013, and final numbers for 2012....please scroll back.  Thank You**

**Edited to say believe it's going to be named Desert Rose.  Got 4 votes for that and 3 for Rambling Rose in comments below.**

  1. I like "Pretty In Pink"

  2. My vote goes to Desert Rose. No matter what it's name...... it is fabuluos!!! Wonderful job to all who participated!

  3. Love the afghan. How about Rambling Rose for a name, since it has been across many states ad is a rose color.

  4. Thanks ladies for the visits, and the comments. I sorta think of pretty in pink as bright girly pink, this is desert like in that it reminds me of shades on the desert changing with the various lights of the day, but hum....rambling rose has a flare too. Gonna edit and add Rambling Rose as an option.

  5. Change my vote anyhow, I love the name Rambling Rose!

  6. From here it looks like "Desert Rose." Very pretty!

  7. Thanks Tristi and Harvest Hill....looks like we have 2 favorite names so far.

  8. Sandy~ I have to go with Desert Rose... What a beautiful Afghan! I know a family here at the Homeless Families Foundation is going to love it!

  9. 3 for Desert Rose and 2 for Rambling Rose so far, anxious to see what DD's thoughts are since she was involved

  10. I will have to go with Rambling Rose. an old song by Nat King Cole that reminds me of my dad. always loved it. this beautiful piece needs a beautiful name.

  11. Beautiful Afghan!!!

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?
