Nerds are Cool, Squares prove it

knitted squaresRemember your high school days, when being square meant you were a nerd? Remember the movie, revenge of the nerds? I know we all can relate to one or both of these statements. Fast forward.............being square is COOL, being a nerd is COOL, so be COOL and join the squares!

Jumping the gun a wee bit, because our official start to Give a Square is Nov, but do take time and read all about it. Click blog badge in the side bar. Thank you Rose Marie for these fabulous fun knitted squares. Look at all the cool colors folks. I'm going to have fun designing a ghan or two with these squares. RoseMarie sent 44 squares! YIPPEE

Take a peak in the top right corner, a cute pair of thumbless mitts Rose Marie also sent. Most of the squares are knitted, while the mitts are crocheted. She also sent along a pattern I'm hoping to check out as well.

Keep those fingers, hooks, and needles moving folks. The need is great and each and every stitch you make DOES matter.

We're still involved with our mitten challenge/mitten throw down. I'm really anxious to see how many mittens we can get during that time. Again many thanks to Beth for the idea, and for the pattern. Click in tabs above folks.

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!


  1. What a lot of squares. I'm sure I'll see the ghans made with these as I go through more posts. :-)

  2. Some have already been used, and some might still be waiting in the wings, hard to keep track of which ones went where.


PLEASE...Leave your name and URL of your blog, NOT Google+ Profile. I'm can't return the favor of a blog visit if you leave Google+ !!!

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?
