Afghans Celebrate an Important Move

 Another awesome ripple-ish type afghan from our good friend AnneMarie (if you missed yesterday's post, please scroll back to see her other afghans).  I say ripple-ish because it's sorta a ripple, but softer ups and downs.  This one is slightly different in that it has a bit of feather and fan to it (feather and fan are a common ripple style used in knitting).  LOVE the colors.  This will be great to snuggle up in.
And everyone knows this style afghan, the most recognisable style afghan that probably exists.  A granny style, beautifully made with bright cheery colors.  Two more lucky family's will receive these afghans through our Project Welcome Home, where we donate afghans as folks transition from shelter living to their permanent housing situation.  Something to celebrate.  Our afghans are a way to say Congratulations for moving forward, and best of luck for a brighter future.

As always, thank you for your generosity AnneMarie.  Keep up the good work.  Be sure and pop in tomorrow for the final box of goodies from AnneMarie

  1. BEAUTIFUL ANNEMARIE.. you have been in the mood to make afghans! These are really lovely and I am drawn to the granny square as I love those colors together. Good job, :+) Thanks for caring. I am sure there are a number of people who have received your gifts now and in the past, thanking you for your kindness.
    Weather here is definitely MARCH. Cold with snow, and rain and snow mix tonight. Plenty of time for clean up. It will be gone soon. 60 degrees on Sat. Back on the roller coaster again. God bless the homeless. Marj in Minnesota/ 25 degrees

    1. Think we may be joining you on the roller coaster Marj, we too got snow again last night, and it's another night below freezing temps. If the weather men are right we might warm up to high 50's in a few days which would be awesome! Many thanks for being such a good cheerleader daily with your supportive comments.

  2. WOW, you have been very busy AnneMarie. I love the ripple one. The colors are great. Thank you for helping to keep some people warm.

    1. Thank you Sue for your supportive visits and comments. So agree with you on the WOW

  3. I really like that second afghan! Is it as soft as it looks?

    1. Yes it is. An awesome ghan. Thanks for the visit and comment.

  4. Your Afghans are wonder AnneMarie. Great job.

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?
