Inching Towards our Afghan Donation Goal


We're inching our way towards our donation goal for afghans!  We need just 6 to make our goal of donating the same this year as we did last year.  Will we make it?  Only time will tell.  Please stay tuned.  This large granny style square afghan is a joint effort.  Ann M. had donated the pretty pink center which I put aside to add enough to make a lapghan/afghan.  This is slightly larger than an lapghan and perhaps a bit smaller than I make most afghans, but it covers me nicely---in that when I was working on it, it kept me warm, lol

This was a quick photo before I put it in the laundry so, it will be slightly larger after it's blocked.  

Thank you Ann for the good start!

**We need 164 scarves to meet last years donation number and we have 18 calendar days left....9.1 per day would do it.  Wonder how close we'll get??  Likewise we need 180 hats to hit last years donation total, so that would be 10 hats per day.  Who knows.

DONATIONS 2017

HATS:  180
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves)  164
MITTENS:  +9
SLIPPERS: 52
RAIN PONCHOS: 205
COTTON WASHCLOTHS: +72
AFGHANS: 7-1=6
SOCKS: 120 
Misc, Ponchos, shawls, headbands etc aren't counted but very much appreciated.

**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?
