Crocheted Afghans Welcome Families Home

 Thank you Patty S for these two crocheted afghans.  I'm not sure, but think maybe this a broomstick lace type stitch?  Patty is it?  The burgundy should work well for a child to cuddle up in,
and the blue and variegated one is long enough for a tall adult.  Both are heavy and therefore nice and warm.  And who doesn't like blue, this will be definitely be a hit whomever is the recipient.  Keep up the good work Patty.

Folks it's been awhile since I've posted what we do with our afghans, they're given to families when they leave shelter living and transition into their permanent housing situation.  It's a way of saying congratulations your move, a house warming gift, and good luck for the future that we hope is brighter for you and yours.

    Nice job Patty. Lots of work there. Very nice colors. Blue one could even be used for a guy! I like afghans to roll up in when it is cold. Thanks for thinking of the Homeless, and making such a lovely donation. :+)

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?
