Mikey at the Crochet Crowd issued out a "Spring has Sprung" challenge a few weeks ago. I elected to create the crib afghan challenge using up some of the Rose Mist Vanna's Choice yarn I purchased last November during a Shopko $1.49 sale. Couldn't go wrong at that price!
The stitch pattern was super repetitive, and therefore quick to pick up.
The afghan finished off at about 40" x 44". I used 4 skeins of the Rose Mist, and less than half of a skein from my leftovers from Coffee-n-Cream-(Drop in the Pond). (Super Saver Aran, Buff, Coffee).
I started searching the net yesterday to find who/when/where I could start donating crib afghans. Project Linus kept popping up at the most common donation organization for crib/toddler/youth blankets/afghans/quilts. The Northwestern Wisconsin Chapter will most likely be my newest organization for donations. I just wish I could craft away ALL the time for ALL of my donation organizations: Quilts of Valor (QOV), Quilts for Kids (QFK) and now, Project Linus (PL).
This makes me curious: Are there organizations you donate for? I mostly have been a quilter for the past 14 years and have donated quilts to QOV and QFK, but now that crochet has CLEARLY become a craft consuming my crafting time, I'm definitely interested in donating where and when I can with afghans too.
Happy Sunday everyone!
