New Afghan Needs Name, Blogging in Alphabetical Order, Jobless and Judgement

This is the beginning (2nd picture I've taken) of the afghan I'm currently working on.  Will take some time before this one is ready to donate, as it's only about 7.25 inches when the picture was taken.  It's a bit larger now and has one additional color, green.  Not sold on a name yet..Lines of Jewels (lines because it will be striped?), Striped Jewels, Jewel Palette?  Thoughts?

Blogging in Alphabetical order brings us to J.  Some words I came upon associated with homeless are jobless, and judgement.

It's so easy to pass judgement on others.  Sadly, we all do it naturally.  We must fight our instincts to not pass judgement on others.  That becomes, I think even harder when thinking about Homeless People.  Often people judge homeless people to be lazy, to be criminals to be bad people.........when none of that may be true.  Living on the streets is NOT easy, to stay alive alone means you're not lazy; but that stereotype judgement exists.  Maybe the person is homeless because they lost their job, maybe they lost their job through no fault of their own, maybe they lost their job due to health issues.  So many possibilities.  A child may be homeless through no fault of their own.  Military often come back from service broken, be it physical or mental or both.  Certainly that's not their fault and they should not be judged.  

Being jobless when homeless is very difficult.  How do you apply for a job when you have no address?  How do you apply for a job when you have no means of cleaning up?  How do you apply for a job when you no phone or other means of being contacted?

Difficult problems being homeless, being jobless and being judged unjustly.

  1. The afghan is looking nice. I like Lines of Jewels. Being jobless and homeless go hand in hand. I agree, if you are homeless it would be very hard to find a job.

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?
