Donated Mountain Sky Afghan

I usually don't post this many pictures in one post, but I found this really interesting.  This is one of the afghan projects that traveled with me to Hilton Head recently.  You've already the completed Orange Julius Afghan.  When pieces are different sizes, I always lay the pieces out to help the process of edging/adding etc to make the pieces as uniform as possible before assembly.

Differnt angle, same designed afghan...except I think I move one or two of the stripes.  This is the first picture I took here at home some time back when it was first designed and labeled and bagged until such time as it could be put together.  Look how different they look.  The 2nd picture looks far more green, must have been the lighting.  I named it Mountain Haze and thought I'd join with a green or gray.

I didn't have the appropriate colors in sufficient quantities ...and found plenty of the pretty bright blue...sorta center in this 2nd picture.  And you can see far more blue in the top picture.

He it is being blocked and drying.  Not the best picture, was a bit limited where I could put, and where I could stand there in the vacation time share.  Blue currently on my computer looks more purple.......which it isn't.

It's very very blue, so I decided the name was no longer appropriate and have renamed this one, Mountain Sky.

The most real picture color wise...is the very first picture.  In fact, in that photo you can see one of the blue skeins of yarn sitting there on the bed.  Lights there were good, must have been more natural.  The first picture was condo 1, and finished picture was a 2nd condo.  I was overly optimistic I guess laying out these afghan and Orange Julius in the first condo.......I didn't get them both done while staying at the first condo.

I often see colors look a bit different based on light at the time the photo was taken, but this one.........might be the biggest change I've seen.

I did work on a 3rd afghan while there, but didn't manage to finish it.  It's still a work in progress, which I share on down the line.  But....we're making headway with our afghan goal count.  And hopefully some of you are also working on one or twelve, lol.

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?
