Designing Blue Boy

This afghan design is currently called Blue Boy.  But, I'm open to suggestions.  Lots of sizes here, so this will be a tedious assembly.  I think I'm seeing this come together with blue if I have enough of the right shades in my stash...though with the number of put together already with blue, and those designed and waiting in the wings...I may have to come up with another plan.  I'm not sure there's enough brown here to use in assembling...but maybe just off white/tan/beige?

Some of these squares are knitted, some are crocheted, some are sampler style, some are granny style...got a real variety going on with this design.  Anyone see their squares here?  It's always fun for folks to sing out when they recognize something.

**Please remember folks to tag ALL hats with size, rather then my trying to guess and or the volunteers at the various shelters trying to guess.  Please also remember to wash and block all afghans before mailing.  It removes hair, odors, oil and dust......and it makes the ghan so much more finished.  I always suggest not drying ghans in the dryer...though I know most yarn says it can be done.  They get fuzzy, and you can't blog them in the dryer.  Please lay them out in a pet free area, you almost always need to help shape it, thus the blocking.

    Blue is a good color for the day. Storms all over the country it seems. We are in for our share this adfternoon. Good luck everyone. Another beautiful afghan Sandy. I like the blue and brown together.

  2. Nice colors together. You always put squares together in the right way. Blue Boy is a good name for it I think. Can't wait to see all these afghans you have been forming completed. I hope you can get someone else here in Central Ohio to help you as well. I know Kristi is a great help but I'm such a slow poke. Keep up the good work Sandy.

  3. Sandy, another beautiful afghan, and I love the blues.

  4. Thanks all for the visits and sweet comments. Marj stay safe, right you are the weather/storms not good.

  5. I love blue boy because I love blue and brown together! Blue boy seems like a good name to me! Or perhaps little boy blue?
    We are having a family gathering today to celebrate my grandson's and my husband's b'days. It was supposed to be outside.......we are going to be inside with this weather!! Keep safe everyone!

  6. Love the name and the colors. You have the best eye for colors and always come up with great names. How about tan to join?

  7. Little Boy Blue...like childhood nursery rhythm...cute idea, like the idea of tan also. Thanks Sally and Dorothy.

  8. Some boy will love that one. Blue Boy today, yesterdays afghan could have been Pink Girl after the paintings. At least I think that is what the pink girl painting was called.

  9. SSeger, that's a cute idea too. Not familiar with painting, but now you've got me curious.

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?
