Designing Spring Garden Afghan

Drum roll....please.  This is the last afghan I designed during the last marathon multi-day design craze.  Thinking of calling this one Spring Garden (though I do need to check and see if I've used that name before)I know I have a fair amount of yellow in my stash, but I don't think it's the right shade, so...either I use beige or go yarn shopping.  I hate to buy more yarn, as I really try to use my stash....it's pretty substantial...least as of the writing of this scheduled post.  Who know's what yarn will be used before this one gets edge and assembled?

We're almost to the end of May which brings on June and it's focus of slippers.  Slippers needed for Men, Women, and Children (and teens).  Please check slipper tab for details.  Please remember to tag and join your pairs of slippers with size.  Please consider using double yarn in your slippers so they're nice and thick and sturdy.  Tight stitches and dark colors are best with slippers.

    Another good one Sandy. Lots of bright girlie colors. Especially like the yellow. This will definitely be a nice addition to some little girls room.

  2. I agree Marj! Love that bright sunny yellow! Are all the squares in this one the same size Sandy? You have now designed so many that you can't possibly have too many squares left in your stash?!? I feel a very busy summer coming on with joining all these squares! Can't wait to see all the finished projects! Good luck!

  3. Nice job Sandy! Love this afghan too! You do such a great job of putting afghans together. I wish I had you imagination. Keep up the good work.

  4. Thanks Marj, Sally, and Sherry. I too like the yellow and think it really makes it. I actually do still have a good number of squares...

  5. Spring Garden is nice & cheery.

  6. Lovely colors for a ghan..how about calling it Flower Power?

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?
