10 More Squares

I can't believe that it is August 22nd already! Labor Day is right around the corner. And that means that our Summer of Squares is coming to a close. However, there is still plenty of time to make some more squares, and/or post about squares you have already made.

I spent last weekend working on another group of squares. I made one square for Krochet Krystal and 9 for a Warm Up America blanket.
I used Caron Simply Soft for the daisy square, and 2 skeins of Plymouth Encore for the WUA squares.

I also wanted to apologize for not getting back to those of you who volunteered to donate prizes. If you are still willing to donate, that is terrific. Since I have a couple of skeins of yarn for prizes, I thought that it might be fun to have some non-yarn prizes. Maybe a pattern book or some notions would work well. But it's up to you guys. Anything you can think of will work just fine. Also, I mentioned something at the very beginning about awarding a prize for the most squares donated to charity, but I haven't tracked that very well. So if you could post here or email me about how many squares you donated, that would be a big help.

More squares!

I have made six more squares for my mitered blanket. Sorry for the lack of photos! I have somehow misplaced my camera. How is everyone else doing??

2 More Squares

I know that I have been neglecting my afghan squares while I have been finishing up a few other projects. But this week my crochet guild has asked for a square or 2 for a comfort ghan we are putting together for one of our members who lost her husband unexpectedly in July. So here is my contribution:
Both squares are made out of Wool Ease, and I used WUA's shell stitch pattern for both. They worked up very quickly, and it felt good to get back to some afghan squares again.

Also, I just wanted everyone to know that I leave Saturday on vacation. I am spending next week in Nova Scotia. So I won't be online during that time. I will check back in as soon as I get back to CT, though. Have a great week!
