Blanket of Many Colors.

When I started this afghan, I had only a few balls of yarn and thought perhaps I'd make squares to join together, but changed my mind and periodically bought another color I liked.  It's knitted all in garter stitch, binding off a section then picking up stitches to go another direction.  It's made with washable wool, Plymouth.  It's a nice change for the hands after the last 2 afghans from acrylic.  Acrylic makes wonderful afghans, and is durable; it's just a bit harder on the hands while knitting or crocheting.

Had fun finding bright cherry colors.  Had initially called this another eclectic afghan, but since I've already used that name.  Thought of Blanket of Many Colors which several folks said they liked better.........so there you go.

This will be donated to Homeless Families Foundation, like all of our afghans.  

It's being dried/blocked here in the picture.  It's not stretch out quite as well as I would have liked; but...Dear Hubby did this for me, as I am not mobile.  Currently in a boot, non weight bearing due to a broken bone in my foot.  So, I thank him for his efforts.  The afghan is quite large, soft, warm and very bright and cherry...even if not stretched quite enough to be super straight.

**The counts on our progress bars are current. Percentages are current.  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. I know, Sandie if I didn't have the knitting and crocheting...the time with foot up would be LONG. At least I can be productive.

    1. My Mom always loved yellow and gold, said yellow was a happy color and I tend to agree. Was a fun blanket to make with all the colors.

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?
