Buckeye Ghan in the Works

Sometime back received this small red rectangle and laid it aside thinking it was too small for a blanket, but would certainly be a good start on one.  Initially thought it would make a nice center for a Christmas Ghan and I do have some squares appropriate for that; but.........then as I was organizing some stash....I was reminded of Buckeye colors and decided that made more sense for this time of the year.  And so, here's a little beginning.  I have found the plan gray and the variegated red and gray.  Pretty sure there's some dark gray and probably black kicking around somewhere on the shelves with my huge stash.  I'll get started with what I've found so far and go from there.

After all, Buckeye Colors are good all year long.

Will keep you posted, as this Buckeye Blanket Grows.

Hats:       200
Scarves:   115

Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.

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.

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?
