Blue Sea-Blue Ocean Afghan

 These 4 knitted panels from Mary Hoyt are very close in length and put together will become an afghan.  I love the mix of colors, the blocks and patches of various sizes.  Blues and Greens...almost a sandy green.  Made me think of the sand that churns up as the tide  goes in and out.  The Ocean and or Sea is sometimes green, sometimes blue, sometimes a mix.  Other times it's close to brown or brownish green or brownish blue.
A different view.  As I tossed the panels down I immediately put the solid greenish...sand panel next to the one where that color also appears.  But, after staring at these photo's awhile I think perhaps switching it up so it's not next to it...I think flip flopping the solid panel with the panel on the far right side might be a better option????

So far I'm thinking Blue Sea or Blue Ocean for the name.  Way in folks, what do you think?  I'm sure I have something in my stash to add a bit to panel closest to us in this picture to make it the same length as the other panels.  I really like the look and think this will be make an awesome afghan.  The yarn I think is a chunky yarn, it's quite soft with the stitches nice and close so it will be warm.

Let me know your thoughts folks.

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?
