Knitted and Crocheted Afghans in the Works

 The colors here are a bit off.  The center of this knitted afghan is navy, not purple as it sorta looks in this picture.  This afghan has been real piece meal.  Started it in the car on a road trip, and then when it got a bit big for car trips, laid it aside.  Have 4 more sections to finish it, then get ends tucks in, laundered and blocked.  Hoping to get this done soon to help with our numbers for afghans.
This crocheted afghan is getting there.  The pink center was donated, and is a nice start.  Thought working on this might produce another afghan a little quicker, as crocheting is faster than knitting.  After several more rounds of the variegated, will do perhaps a pink or blue section next.  Need to check my stash and see what works.

Hope you're all busy trying to finish up some projects.  I'll keep ya posted how we're doing against our goal of matching last years donated afghan total.  29 to go.

**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.

  1. Oh, those afghans will be so nice when you are done with them. Good luck in getting them finished by the end of the year! I hope to have a scarf or two for you by the end of the year. I have been busy with baby blankets lately.

  2. Love the mix of colors in the one on your needles. You're always so good with color. I've seen that center pink pattern before. Pretty! You're giving me the itch to try knitting again.

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?
