Afghan Knitting Project

thirteen blocks for Afghan Knitting Project
October 2017
I learned about the Afghan Knitting Project to benefit families of students who are being sponsored by Project Amigo from Jeni V. (fiber guild member) and used wool scraps that another guild member (Katheryn E.) gave me for charity knitting.

The project accepts both 5 inch or 6 inch squares (knit or crochet). I chose to knit 5 inch squares from Katheryn's wool.

Some of the yarn that Ellen sent me will be used to knit more squares for the Afghan Knitting Project.

  1. What a nice project...though I would not like being the one to stitch/knit all those squares together!!

  3. Another interesting project for sharing. Very pretty squares. It's probably a fun way to knit a different pattern without getting bored or bogged down.

  4. What a great project. I have several projects going already but I'll keep this information handy. I delivered my knitted mittens to the elementary school yesterday. Just in time as our temps have been really cold already this fall.
    Blessings,

  9. Love all the texture in those squares. They look like they were interesting to knit up.

    Our local Starbucks had a bin of acrylic yarn, crochet hooks and needles. You could sit and knit (or crochet) using their supplies. They wanted 9" squares. I didn't have time to crochet a whole square, but added several rows (about 2") to someone else's partially done square. It was fun.

  10. The blocks you have knit are beautiful-nothing like a block of texture knitting to make a delightful evening!

  13. Thanks for the info. This is a great way to use leftover yarn. Now, can I actually fit in doing a couple of these? I've bookmarked the site for future work.
