Afghan in the Works

ghan in the worksI pulled these 18 blue, burgundy and variegated knitted squares from those Rose Marie sent. This is the basic lay out for a ghan in the works. Normally I stitch/edge around all squares before joining; but am doing this one a bit different. To utilize the size, I'm stitching together one row horizontally using navy; then am crocheting multiple rows across for a fairly wide border of the navy between each row of stitched squares. This should make a reasonable sized lapghan for either an adult or male teen. I believe the colors are appropriate for that as well.

By the time you read this scheduled post I should be well over half way on the corner to corner ghan for The Mission as well.

Scarves 264+11=275
Hats 417
Mittens 49
Ghans 3

Please remember all donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. It truly DOES make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
