Sea and Sand Knitted Afghan

Not the best picture, but it's done folks.  Long last!  Whew, I've been knitting this it seems forever.  It needs to be laundered and blocked yet, but finally Sea and Sand Afghan is done.  It's very large and will be a bit larger once blocked no doubt.

It might be part of fund raiser for Homeless Families Foundation, and it might be donated as we do the others for The Welcome Home Project.

WOOT WOOT, messed around more and found the page somehow hidden...but please still feel free to let us know if you have a good pattern to add!!  Here's the Mitten Tab.

Folks, if you missed the  post where I included a graph of how we're doing with each of the items we knit and crochet and donate and compared it to this time last year.  Please click HERE

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?
