A Thought About our VA Tech Squares

After reading about the Knitting for Virginia Tech site yesterday, I had a thought about the squares we are making in memory of the victims. I wondered how you would all feel about using some of our squares to make a blanket to donate to them. The blankets will be meaningful to whoever receives them, but I think they might be most meaningful to Virginia Tech students.

And while I am posting, I thought I would include a picture of the 4 afghan squares I have completed so far - 3 for WUA and 1 for VA Tech - to boost our April total.
The pattern for the VA Tech square is called Racing Stripes, and there are other really nice 12" crocheted square patterns at the same site. I have another square for VA Tech started, and I should get it finished before Monday. I will see what else I can accomplish this weekend to add to the total, and then I will send off all the afghan squares at the same time. Have a great weekend everyone!

That is gorgeous! I may have to see if I can get a few more squares done this weekend too.

It has been brought to my attention that I should inspire you to visit the livejournal community. For now, that is where more of the conversation is, and I don't want you to be left out :)

Those are beautiful! And yes, will definately be sending items to that group. Thanks.

Priscilla said...

Thank you for all the compliments! That's a great way to get me to make more squares!

I actually have subscribed to the livejournal feed, and I do follow the conversations over there. It would be nice to participate, but I wasn't sure how to go about joining. Is it just a matter of registering with livejournal?
