I've only been slowly working on some WIP blankets and frogged socks but in between those i've made 14 charity squares, or rectangles that is , to give to warm up america tomorrow when i go to my first fiber fest.

i was only going to make 12 but i read that 7 make a strip so i made the 14 and here are my 2 strips!


thanks for looking!

Very nice! I have yet to venture into the charity knitting, but I bet it feels great to know your stitches are warming someone! I am slowly running out of people to knit for, so I may have to join the charity knitting!:yay:

Lovely colours! I really want to get into charity knitting, but I think I'm a bit of a charity case of a student at the moment! Ah- that's no excuse, it will be one of my resolutions.

That's really nice of you! I have a bag of them I need to drop off one of these days, too.

thanks bunches!

knit2btied it's just small amounts of acrylic yarn i had stashed

i got alot of it from my gram so it has to be fairly vintage

most of it was pretty soft though,especially the yellow!

when i dropped those off the ladies there was very happy to see that i had already seamed them together. i sat and made another square while my friend learned how to knit and practiced.

they complimented me on finding a very small amount of yarn (she called it abandoned) and using it as stripes with another they had in a large quantity.

i should have taken a picture of it.. it was a nice time..i wish i could've stayed there longer!

I'm glad it was fun all the way around! Best of all, someone will be warm due to your efforts! (smile)
