Here's Dusty Rose when it was first designed. Some interesting squares and rectangles. Some are knitted, some are crocheted and they come from many different pairs of helping hands. It was the 3rd afghan I took with me to Hilton Head to work on, so it got some miles in much like Rusty Nail and Arapaho (see previous 2 posts).
Here it is in the works. Almost all the right side is edged. To match sizes, different stitches and numbers of rows around were used. Just one more square to finish edging and then will join it to the middle row and the middle row to the top and bottom sections before moving onto the left side. When finished, this will be a nice family sized afghan.
Was able to collect quite a mound of personal care items (shampoo, conditioner, and soap) from the hotels and condo's on said trip. Plus, a good number of packages of coffee. The coffee will come in hand for Rae, as she prepares hot meals on Sat's for those folks living out in the elements. A nice cup of hot coffee will surely help warm them up.
I'm listing our end numbers from 2015 and will subtract our current number as means of keeping our goal in front of us. I'll show the goal number in Red. Let's strive not just to match last years numbers, but.........work towards even more.
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 110
Rain Poncho's: 105
Cotton Washcloths: 444
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands: 11

Misc: items like personal care and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted
