Some information to share

Hi KS My Stitch members,

I just ran across this blog (through a link on another I read) that is searching for squares to make afghans for the victims of the Sand Diego wildfires. The requirements they are seeking for are just a little different than those we are using for our charity afghans: they would like squares that are 8 inches square, and preferably made of acrylic so they are washable and dryable. More detailed information is available on the blog link above.

With more than 1,500 families who have lost their homes, there will surely be plenty of need for these blankets.

If any of you are interested in making squares for this project, please leave a comment here on the blog. I would be willing to take any squares that we can collect at the November meeting for this project and mail them to California. I intend to make several over the next couple of weeks myself.

Finally, for any of you who may need a refresher (or introduction) to granny squares, here is a basic granny pattern. The great thing about grannies is that you can just go until they are the right size. And they are a great way to work through scraps and stash.

See you all in a few weeks!

  1. I am still struggling with the granny square. If it is such an “easy” project, how come I can’t master it?Maybe I don’t really want an answer to that.


  2. Lee,I’d be happy to sit down with you and work on granny squares at a time that is convenient for you. If you haven’t double-crocheted before, a granny square can be a real challenge! I will see if I can find a pattern that has charting as well. That might be easier to follow.Cori


  3. Hey Y’all…..I think I finally have granny close to under control. It’s still pretty crude, but I do believe with more practice it become more neat. I have found a pattern that I am comfortable with and can understand what it is talking about.
