Garden Afghan

Last year’s afghan raffle was a big success (we raised over $7,000  mxn for the kids with cancer project) so Beth and I made another one! This year’s design is a flower garden, crocheted in ivory yarn. If I say so myself,  it’s even prettier than the last one.

Same low price as last year, $20 a raffle ticket or 3/$50. This year a portion of the proceeds also goes to the I.W.C. scholarship program.

The drawing is in January (I’ll forgot the date so I’ll have to get back to you on that).

Stop by MEL, tomorrow, Monday December 7th between 10am and noon to buy a ticket from one of the Gorro Girls or maybe join us to crochet or knit a hat? Don’t know how? No worries, we’ll teach you!  We’re also looking for people to sell raffle tickets. If you want to help out and can’t make it tomorrow, email me.

    Where we once tried to learn to knit, but couldn’t maintain consistent tension, and ended up with a lumpy mess.

    • Awaiting moderation?!?

      • sorry! I have sort of sloughed off on my blogging duties. I had to change the spam filter to this new one because I was getting some 20k spams a day. I forgot that I was going to have to reapprove everyone that commented.

        I keep starting new posts but never finishing them.

        regards,

      ps: it takes awhile to get consistent tension in both knitting and crocheting. I was teaching someone and they despaired of ever learning (it was the first lesson), my answer was that I’ve been doing this for almost half a century so it had better look effortless when I do it.

  3. I continue to be amazed at your skills. It is quite pretty.

    • Hi Steve,
      Thank you, glad you like it. Crocheting is my version of fidgeting, I can’t just sit and watch tv.

      regards,
      Theresa

      • My mother is like that. She likes to watch TV while knitting, crocheting, or sometimes while doing needlepoint.

        • My capslock got stuck. Doesn’t help my typing to have to hold down the shift key>>>>okay,applied a little percussive therapy and it’s working again.

          Husband says that I listen to TV instead of watching it, it doesn’t work out all that great when I need to read subtitles but usually it’s fine.

          regards,
          Theresa

          ps: I am trying to be better about checking and approving comments- you used a different email this time so had to be approved again-sorry.
