Yesterday, we had a small kick-off for the Sausalito Squares project in making Afghans for Afghans for Afghans. It was amusing to my knitterly ego to find two crocheters there waiting at 4 pm when I got there. Fortunately, one of them is very fine crocheter indeed, and figured out some great stuff with Sophie, and I helped the other one, James, rediscover his inner crocheter (he’d learned when he was in college and wanted a throw, but nobody would make him one, but somebody taught him how to crochet).
And then squares starting to appear. Here we are already:
Suzanne and Marty are amazing at the way these go together.
Another gal, LaDonna, came by with some mitered squares from a dying project a while back:
and absolutely adorable baby hats from a pattern that’s in Knitting for Peace.
The hat pattern is Swirled Ski Cap by Caps for Kids — so cute!
I love to see how beautiful lace becomes in the blocking!
I’m so glad that I have it to wear at Stitches this coming week!
