Rusty Nail Afghan in the Works

 Here's Rusty Nail in it's previous stage when you saw it with 2 rows joined but not attached.
It's growing now with another row joined and then attached (top 2 rows).  Working on the sizing for 3rd row with the 4th row there to aid in the guide which is joined but not attached.

And here with row three almost completely joined.  Looks like I need to make another square, or check my stash to see if I have one I can slip in.  It's always very hard to tell how much the knitted squares will grow once edged.  See the 5th one in the 3rd row in the 2nd picture.  It has some cool detail in texture design, just needed to be stretched  out with the crocheted edging.  This photo is a bit dark and it's very gloomy outside and even with lights on inside, it's hard to get the colors exactly right in the photo.

What are you all working on?  Our  homeless friends need your help.

**psss did you see the fun yarn bowl above?  The tangerine square is still being edged and the yarn is in my yarn bowl.  This is the yarn bowl I painted with my Darling Daughter.

  1. Rusty Nail is looking good! The yarn bowl is cute and the colors really pop sitting beside all the orange colors. I have 2 scarves, some washcloths done and want to make a hat or two before sending off my donation. Do you think ear warmers would be good to send?

    1. Lets try the ear warmers out Sue. Go ahead and send and I'll get with my contacts . Thanks for asking and for your thoughtful visits, much appreciated.

    2. Thank you! I will make one and send it with some other things.

  2. How often do you bring it to the homeless people or do you do it in one shot? I think what you are making is great and love the unique squares.

    1. I make many visits throughout the year Birgit. I stock up the shelters during the summer so they have things on hand for when the weather turns and basically delivery everytime I have a good load. Then as the weather turns I go more often.
      Thanks for your support Birgit.

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?
