Bridge and Beyond for Homesless Families Foundation is Blue Jay. The variegated squares, dark blue, and medium blue required 1 row of single crochet as an edging, while the light blue required one row of double crochet. I managed to get all the edging done in the car ride as we traveled back from St. Louis yesterday. This needs to be tied together so crocheting it together can begin and I think will need a substantial border to bring the size up a bit. Currently it measures 43 x 43. Should be able to add several inches to it once it's assembled, bordered, and blocked.
Sorry gang, I'm a day late with my Sunday, YOP post.
My Year of Projects List for July 2012-July 2013
My Afghan Goals:
To complete 12 afghans:
10 from donated squares (9 down and 1 to go)
1.. Summers End
3. My Granny
4. Christmas Time
5. Buckeye Blitz
6. Box of Crayons

Complete Candy Corn Afghan (longest work in progress project EVER)
Finish the Feather and Fan Afghan (knitted), that finally has a name, Sea and Sand
**Sea and Sand in the works
SO, BLUE JAY WILL BE MY 10TH AFGHAN MADE FROM DONATED SQUARES. IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN IF I'M GOING TO MANAGE TO COMPLETE SEA AND SAND, AND THAT LONG TERM CANDY CORN TO COMPLETE THIS PORTION OF THE LIST.
Other portion of the lists are not coming along as well as the afghan list. The project for Darling Daughter got switched after I made a scarf that the colors weren't right, and switched that project to a sweater, which is in the works, but only have a portion of the the back piece done. Need to rip out a few rows, and so have put it on the back burner.
Cable knit skirt for myself.....no hope of getting it done, though I did get part of my goal completed. I learned how to knit cables, by knitting a scarf with cables, which is still in need of a good soak and blocking.
Cotton cloths for myself, has gotten switched to 2 Pay it Forward Gifts, and a gift for a friend who's husband has been very ill, in and out of the hospital. Sadly, mostly in the hospital and she's in need of a pick me up.
travels from Cols, to St. Louis.
