She's also crocheted hats, cotton washcloths and a scarf. Such a nice donation. Again thanks for labeling the hats with size. It's truly appreciated. Tristi is local and so we were able to meet face to face when she passed this donation onto me. I love getting to meet some of you good folks. It's a real bonus. We enjoyed a cup of tea and look forward to getting together again. (speaking about tea, here's a post all you tea lovers should see)
She's also agreed to help me with assembling an afghan. This afghan, titled Retro was designed some time back and has been waiting to be assembled. I tend to assemble based on what yarn colors I have on hand. I love the mix of colors of brown and turquoise and it reminds of the 50's kitchen colors. Some squares are knitted, some are crocheted and they are a variety of sizes. I used to accept a variety of sizes, but in order to get things done quicker I now accept 8 inch squares only....at designated times. I'll not be calling for squares for some time to come, as I still have plenty on hand to work with. PLEASE check the working calendar to determine when squares are to be mailed next.
In the meantime, do stay tuned to see the finished ghan. This was my vision when I laid the squares out, she may have another. Thank you Tristi for your help.
