Ahhh…the holidays are over. My every day activities can return to normal. I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I know I was busy with friends, family and knitting. My favorite project being the purse I made for my sister, Jayme. In the end it was a family effort to finish it. I messed up the lining a few times and gave it to my mom. She, in turn, took it to my aunt for some advice. It looks great! I think I need to work on my sewing skills before I make another lined purse. If you are looking for a quick, cabled bag pattern this is a great one. You can find it at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/christine-bag.
I have been receiving a steady stream of squares. In the past month Love-Squared has received and entire color coordinated afghan, plus a few squares from Linda; 77 squares from Conny and friends; and approximately 40-50 squares from the Dragonfly Tea Cottage family. I have to do an updated count, but I’m pretty sure we have squares for 30 afghans. My mom has been hard at work arranging squares and seaming them together. I need to spend a weekend of seaming with her to get them done and ready to donate.
Speaking of donating, I would like your opinion. Should we continue donating the afghans, no matter how many or few we have, every 3-4 months or save them up for a large donation every 6 months? Year? What do you think?
