Dusty Rose Afghan in the Works

Here's Dusty Rose when it was first designed.  Some interesting squares and rectangles.  Some are knitted, some are crocheted and they come from many different pairs of helping hands.  It was the 3rd afghan I took with me to Hilton Head to work on, so it got some miles in much like Rusty Nail and Arapaho (see previous 2 posts). 

Here it is in the works.  Almost all the right side is edged.  To match sizes, different stitches and numbers of rows around were used.  Just one more square to finish edging and then will join it to the middle row and the middle row to the top and bottom sections before moving onto the left side.  When finished, this will be a nice family sized afghan.
Was able to collect quite a mound of personal care items (shampoo, conditioner, and soap) from the hotels and condo's on said trip.  Plus, a good number of packages of coffee.  The coffee will come in hand for Rae, as she prepares hot meals on Sat's for those folks living out in the elements.  A nice cup of hot coffee will surely help warm them up.

I'm listing our end numbers from 2015 and will subtract our current number as means of keeping our goal in front of us.  I'll show the goal number in Red.  Let's strive not just to match last years numbers, but.........work towards even more.

  1. Dusty Rose is going to be pretty! It is interesting to see how all the different types of squares come together and create a beautiful afghan. The power of one square with many other squares helps to keep someone warm. The power of one person with many other people help to keep lots of people warm.

    1. So beautifully said Sue, and so very true. Many thanks for your support.

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?
