Knitted Thanksgiving Afghan Travels to Ohio



Thank you Darling Daughter!  My Darling Daughter knitted this lapghan and brought it home in her suitcase when she visited for Thanksgiving!!  Love it.  Love the colors, so nice and soft made with Lion Brand Homespun.  Pink, Raspberry, Purple (sorta Heather), and a pretty green, though the picture isn't showing the colors very well.

This brings us one closer to our goal of matching last year.  We have about 35 days and need 29 afghans...can it happen?

Many thanks Darling Daughter, whomever gets this to snuggle up in will be thrilled.

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**


All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

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?
