Blue Sky Afghan Design

Blue in about every shade possible is shown above, and so I name this designed and waiting to be assembled afghan Blue Sky.  Is my friend, Sandie P out there...she loves blue so I thought of her when designing this one.  If you've missed the last handful of posts, you may not know I dumped squares in the living room and went at it again...designing like a made woman, bagging and tagging ghans to work on.  I probably will edge and assemble this with an ivory/beige.  Notice how many different sizes there are.  I still have plenty of squares from before I asked for 8 x 8 inch squares only.

I often do the traditional diagnal design when I have multiple squares of the same size or color; but with lots of variety I tend to like to spread the color around.  More patch worky...is that a word?  There's one lone knitted square above, others are sampler squares, and some are traditional granny squares.  Do you see any of your squares above?

**Folks a reminder to PLEASE PLEASE read the tabs across the top of the blog before you start working on your next donation.  Please notice what size and color and fiber requirements are.  Please avoid sending donations that meet those requirements.  We want to meet the need of those we're caring for.  If you have any questions about color, size, fiber, stitches zap me an email at sandycrochet@gmail.com, Thank You!**

  1. Blue sky is sure to be a beauty Sandy just like the beautiful blue sky we are having here in NJ this morning! Blue skies always lift ones spirit and so I can imagine this Afghan will do just that for its future family. SO IMPORTANT! Plus a wonderful gift of warmth. This one is sure to be a winner!

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.
