Rolling Hills Afghan for Homess



This afghan has been designed from crocheted scarves that weren't large enough for our needs.  My daughter helped me design this afghan in the works.  I like the blend of brown and green.  The stripes aren't quite the same size, but with some edging which will be in tan, it should come together nicely.  It will need a good size border to make the afghan an appropriate size.  As always, I searched for a name for this afghan and came up with Earth and Sand, or Sandy Grass; but wasn't sold on either of those names.  A Fitbit friend saw the picture and came up with Rolling Hills.  I think that's a good name, makes me think of fields with grass and earth and things growing perhaps in a farmers field.

This afghan to be is currently resting in one of my project bags, waiting it's turn to grow.  Please stay tuned.  Hoping to get this completed in the near future.

This idea of stripes is a good way to use up yarn in your stash, it's also a bit easier or perhaps quicker than the assembly of an afghan with lots of squares or rectangles.  Also, it seems there will be less ends to work in.  If you've not made an afghan using this method, please give it a try.  We here at Bridge and Beyond would love to donate one of your afghans made this way.




**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. What a great idea to use scarves that are to short to make an afghan! Rolling Hills will sure keep a family warm this winter.

    1. Thanks Sue for the visit and comment..both are appreciated. These scarves vary more in length than the picture shows so will take some work, but I believe it will work out.

  2. Do you want strips to be donated? If so, what size works for you? I believe I remember reading you still had lots of squares but my memory is not the best. :-)

    1. Not right now, but am hoping down the road to clear out all the pieces I have and then restart accepting either strips or squares. Thanks for asking Sandie, but I do still have quite a bit here.

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?
