Mother Earth and List Adjustments

Mother Earth Afghan in the works here. I named this Mother Earth because of the various browns representing the earth, blues for the skies, greens for the grass and trees etc. These squares are very nicely made by my friend from HS, Joy. After designing the ghan, I selected off white/light tan for join and have edged all the squares and will join with a single crochet...which I've been calling join as you go incorrectly. Was watching video's a few days ago and realized my mistake. I've not yet done the join as you go, and after watching the video and realizing it's not joined at every stitch won't be using that method. These ghans need to be sturdy as they're Linkdonated through Bridge and Beyond, my charity blog for Project, "Welcome Home". I often sew squares together and find when the squares are all different sizes this works well.
This crocheted camo scarf is the 3rd scarf I've made of late that hasn't been on my YOP list. It too will be donated to Bridge and Beyond when completed. I should focus more on my list, but often need easy no count type projects that travel and thus............scarves, which are always needed. On Friday, you saw Red Marble a knitted scarf, and prior to that the gray shades version also using Marble yarn.

Rather then redo my list every Sunday, please click on the tab across the top of the blog to see the changes and updates. Notable since my last post completion of another ghan (Red Brick), and completion of the 11th of 12th cotton cloth for the Cotton Cloth Calendar Challenge which were both shown on Friday's FO post.

  1. Love your Mother Earth ghan and how aptly named the off white just sets it all off. Camo scarf is looking great I really like the yarn colours in this. Great work this week.

  4. That blanket is moving on apace, and your nearly done on your cotton cloth challenge! I joined my Babette like that too, crocheting the edges together.

    That scarf will be very welome to someone in this cold winter. I still have no idea how you manage to do so much every week and enjoy catching up on your progress.

  6. I love the Mother Earth (and the name)! I agree - join-as-you-go probably isn't a suitable construction technique for your donated afghans. (But, it is much sturdier than you would imagine.)

  10. What a lovely blanket-and I agree with everyone else that the white really sets the colors off beautifully. The name of it is great too. God bless you for all the charity knitting you do, and the love you very obviously have for the hurting.
