The Afghan drive is working out great, so I think every year we will do this in the winter months.

Here is Tracy showing the gorgeous Afghan and as you can see that a lot of work when in to this one.

Here is another one of her creations.

And another made up with different squares.

They are all gorgeous!

I found out today that Anne only crochet Afghans. Well Anne this will be a great help for the Afghan drive.
Here is one she used two strands of yarn, in each colour and it is very thick and warm. It is amazing!

This one is also amazing, she used a shell stitch. love it.

This Afghan is call the wavy blanky and I thought it would take up a lot of yarn, but it didn't. I used one skein each Red Heart super saver and there is five colours. It also worked up very quick.

I would like to thank you all for working so hard on this drive.

Here we are at our first meeting for 2011 , and to my surprise we collected six Afghans already. Well I can see that they have been working diligently on theses Afghans, to make our goal for this year. I will be seeing the Stouffville group next week and I am sure there will be some more there to pick up.

Here are some of the Afghans I made, a granny ripple,

This one is the wave ripple,

and this one is done with chunky yarn and the stitch is a double cross stitch. I love the finish look. And it is so warm.

Two beautiful hat and scarf sets and a nice warm scarf from Siobhan.

Here she is modeling this set that I love.
It is done together, and very warm. The pattern is called Nomad hat and scarf by Kay Coyle, from the fall 2007 interweave magazine.

And these a Liz's famous mitts, I just love them.

As usual from Margaret, lovely hat and scarf sets.

And here she is showing a baby blanket in blue.Looks great Margaret!

This hat and scarf set is from Jane, beautifully done.
