Crocheting for Charity?
Maybe there is a post on this already and I missed it. I would like to crochet squares and/or rectangles for charity afghan projects. Anone know of a project like that going around? I have a huge stash of yarns, including many that would make up into granny squares or multicolor squares. I'm drowning in yarn and want to do something useful with all these leftovers.

There is a afghan square charity kal going on. I can't see that it makes any difference whether the squares are knitted or Crochet as long as it is 12 inch sq and made with 100% acrylic yarn. worth asking, would be lovely to have the different textures in the blankets.

I am collecting the 12 inch afghan squares, made with 100% acrylic yarn (washable). I am seaming them together, and giving them to charity.

Here's the link about our project:

Yes, Deb, I discovered your thread a couple of days ago and have started crocheting, have 3 rectangles done and 2 partially done. Several questions. How about bright colors like yellow and orange, the crayon colors? What about Christmas colors like the red-white-green ombre-they could be set aside for later when you start assembling Christmas ones. What about striped rectangles that use 2 or more colors? I have tonsof small lengths of yarn that I would love to use up, in something other than a granny, and I have tons of those made, sitting in a bag.

Just in case there are any Aussies apart from me who are interested Knit4charities on Yahoo is a group I belong to and they are interested in more than just squares. We have different charities on our calendar for the year and you make something for any of them you like.They are a great Aussie group.
