Green Valley Afghan

Green Valley nearing completion.  Only a few squares to edge and much of the joining has been done.  You might note a few squares have moved... do that sometimes when I stare at it and think...hey maybe that one over there would be better.  LOL  Do any of you do that when you're putting together an afghan?  Since this picture was taken the square on the left you see partially edged has been finished and the tangerine one next to it.

We're still having frost at night, but indeed the grass is greening up alot with flowers of varying colors showing up well by contrast, much like this afghan.

Keep knitting and crocheting folks, those without a roof over their heads still need us.

Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items.  Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's.  Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.


  1. This is really nice looking especially seeing green as we have had snow on Sunday although supposed to get warmer now. I do think of the homeless here since we have had the coldest April in a long time.

  2. Green Valley is almost done! Looking good. It will sure keep some people warm in the chilly nights we have been having yet.

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?
