Eclectic Afghan for Homeless Families Foundation

This is a start, to what will be a rather eclectic Afghan.  I raided my stash and found  gold, orange, burgundy, gray and teal of the same type and weight of yarn.  Oh, and purple...or perhaps it's more lavender.  So, this knitted afghan is in the works.  I'll be working on it, as well as assembling 3 afghans from stripes and squares and rectangles.  I have project bags all lined up and will keep you informed how things progress.

Since we feel short of our afghan goal last year, I'm trying hard to double my efforts and get a really good start to our goal early in the year.  I'm also hopeful some of you will join me in this endeavor.  Check your stash, check the afghan tab across the top of the blog and see what you might put together.  We're after warmth.  Whether you knit or crochet, remember afghans don't need to be fancy with involved difficult stitches to keep someone warm.  This afghan will be all garter stitches, with the mix of colors providing some interest.

Most crocheted afghans take a bit less time to make than knitted afghans, thus my having 3 crocheted ghans to work on at the same time as this one knitted afghan.  Do you knit or crochet faster?  Perhaps it all comes down to which skill you learned first?

Please stay tuned, as this afghan and the 3 crocheted afghans grow and let me know what you're working on.

**The counts on our progress bars are current, the percentages not quite. I'll not be figure the percentages with each update of numbers, but will be updating again next at least by the 20th. I have in fact made a reminder not on my cell phone for the 20th of each month to do percentages. If we're at a milestone, or I just have extra time I may do it more often...but certainly at that scheduled time.

** 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. I am looking forward to seeing what the next color will be. I bet this afghan will be warm.

  2. Thanks ladies for your wonderful support. I enjoy odd ball afghans, sorta speaks to my personality, lol. The first afghan I made for this year, was also Ecletic, it was crocheted, this one will be knitted. Similar colors but I believe they will look very different.

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?
