Traveling Ghan Still in the Works

 For lack of a better name (but would love someone to come up with a name) Traveling Ghan is getting there.  Started this afghan while on a road trip back in mid January.  As we were running out the door to begin our trip to Hilton Head, I realized I hadn't packed any yarn!  I know, "What was I thinking!".  So quickly grabbed 5 skeins of yarn I thought went together ok (light blue, sage green, gray, rosey pink, and goldish tan), and a long knitting needle and I was on my way.  Basic stripes, some knitted, some stockinette and some (minimal) slip stitch color works (see gray and pink AND gold and blue sections).  Started it in the car on the way down, worked on it there and on the return trip.
But, knitting a ghan is slow, so 2 weeks ago when I again hopped into the car to head to Hilton Head (for a Girls Week), I took Traveling Ghan with me again.  Thought I might run out of yarn, since I had no pattern and this is guestimation so grabbed the darker blue.  The darker blue section is the middle.  So, as you can see I'm now repeating as I make my way down the 2nd half.  AND this ghan will see more miles in the soon to be road trip, so it really is Traveling Ghan.  Can anyone think of a name that goes with the colors?

On the last road trip I also nabbed a few toiletries from the condo during Girls Week.

Stay tuned folks for donations from Cindy K, Dee Ann H, Sarah S, and Karen S.

Hats and Scarves for the Homeless


Another wonderful donation from Karen S with that neat light dark technique she gets when crocheting with a hook on both ends of her hook.  I've not yet figured this out, but it's on my list of things to do; as I really like the look both in color and texture this gives a scarf.  It also makes the scarf nice and puffy...or maybe cushy is a better description of it.  She's knitted to matches hats as well.  What a nice set these make.

Many thanks Karen for your thoughtful donation.  Please keep up the good work.

 Thank you Beth G for this fabulous and very generous donation of crocheted cotton wash cloths, personal care items, and nice warm scarves.  Sorry the picture is a bit funky folks.  This was the last picture I was able to take with my camera before the battery died.  LOVE all the nice dark solid scarves, they work so well for either men or women.
AND......look, there's more.  Separated the donations so things wouldn't be piled on top of each other for the pictures.  These are all scarves, just some aren't laid out.  Whew...she's been busy, please take time to come up for air Beth!

Beth has also included some personal care items in her donation for Ohio's Homeless.

Nice work, many thanks.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
