It's Sunday, time for another Year of Projects Post (badge and links in tab across the top of the blog). Got 3 afghans going at the moment (well really 4 if you count my on going knitting on Sea and Sand...even though it's been idle this week, so no updated picture to show you). Pushing forward on my list it says 10 afghans from donated squares, 2 down and 8 to go. Well...here's the next 3. Several thoughts on this, it's really red, made me think of candy canes and almost thought of edging with wide white and joining and bordering in white...but, I thought it would limit it's use due to dirt, and how it might not be real versatile. Sooooooooo, how about Buckeye Blitz? After all, Buckeye colors are good all year long, and the large percentage of the people in the state do follow the Buckeyes. Sooooo, current plan is to edge squares in the dark heather gray (2 rows), then re-measure and either add black or lighter gray...depending on how it looks and how it measures. **Since photographing I've made headway with a handful of squares being edged**
This will make a wonderful welcome home for a family moving from the shelter into permanent housing as we're in the holiday season. I don't think there's a need to edge these squares at all, as the size will be appropriate as is. I will crochet these together with white, and check my stash for perhaps a dark green for the border..or at least that's my current thought. **Since laying this out, have made some headway, in that it's all tied together ready to go. Hoping to start crocheting it together either tonight or tomorrow** Christmas Time is this one's name.
This is the same picture I posted previously, My Granny is the name of this one, but it's almost finished as I post this morning. Only have 2 more rows to join and then will work on the border with black of course. Might get this finished yet today.
All 3 are being made from donated squares through Bridge and Beyond, and all will be donated to Homeless Families for Project Welcome Home.
