Sand Afghan Designed to be Donated

This photo is a bit washed out, it's not bright; but has a bit more color then you see in the photo.  These squares are almost all the same size so edging shouldn't be an involved procedure.  I really puzzled over naming this afghan.  I thought sandy...thinking beach, I though cool sand because it was darker then just tan with some green, then thought for simplicity sake, maybe just Sand would work?  It's not green enough or bright enough to be grass, let me know if you have some thoughts.

Do you recognize any of your squares in this design?  Have you scrolled back over the last week and half to see if you can find your squares?  I've been designing, naming and lining things up for assembly.  I really need to see how many I have before how long it will be to accept more squares. 

And when I started dumping and dividing and pondering over these squares, it's not because all  my previously designed ghan were done; but...it's hard to know what you have until you go through this process.

    LOVE THIS ONE SANDY. To me this is very rich looking. I love the natural look of it, and yes SAND is a good name for it. Reminds me of a beach or shore too. This is going to be lovely no matter what you call it.

  2. I love the light colors in this one. The only thing I would have done different is put the 4 dark squares in the corners. Sand is a good name for this.

  3. I love this ghan, Sandy!

  4. I also love this one too. So nice and nutural yet with a bit of color. It reminds me of the sand dunes because they often have a bit if grass growing on them. Whatever you should name it I am sure the family that receives it will love it too. Can't wait to see the finished product!

  5. Thanks all for the visits and comments folks. Keep'em coming. Sherry I don't tend to like the 4 corners look unless I have that type of look through the rest of the blog.. here I was going to for the diagonal pattern which I don't think works if you have the 4 corners the dark brown. ?? But, maybe when I lay it again I'll have another look see. Typically I do that again before starting the edging etc.

  6. I rather agree with Sherry. The dark brown amongst the lighter colors jumps out and interrupts flow but if you use a dark color for joining that would work well. Perhaps you have some other light colored squares that would go with these? It does look beachy and I'm sure the final product will be lovely and appreciated.

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.
