Once more I would like to say that the member of casting off the cold, amaze me very time. You can see the pride and creativity in every one's work. I remember some one from one of our charities said to me, that it is always a pleasure to receive all the beautiful things we create. And what a great feeling that is.
 In Markham today, more great stuff and I hope more people will join the group, so they can also help make a difference in York Region. 

Here is Barb showing this beautiful granny stitch Afghan. Love the colour combination

                                          And two lovely hat and scarf sets from Jane. 

This is a baby blanket that Madge knitted.It is very soft , so you wouldn't mind wrapping your baby in it.

And Christine as always, show up with a lot of stuff.Here are some hat and scarf sets for kids. 

                                                           And a baby blanket,  
                                           and here is another one of her baby blankets.

            Christine used scraps to knit this one and I love the way she used her pastels.

                                                      Hey Liz these are sooo cute !!

Liz is knitting wash cloths for babies and they all have a different pattern in the middle. Sorry you can not see the patterns, but if you click on the picture, you may be able to see them.
She made them to add to baby gifts for some of her friends. 

This Afghan Siobhan knitted using the feather and fan pattern stitch. It is gorgeous!

Here we have a couple of hat and scarf sets from a donor, that was given to Monica.
Thank you. 

                           This baby blanket Ulrika crocheted, beautiful.

And this amazing Afghan was made with squares that she designed and the she lined it with a sheet.Isn't it gorgeous! This was made for her niece. Great job Ulrika.

Monica this Afghan looks great and the colours are wonderful together. Also they way you used the pattern, I think it shows the stitch better. The pattern is from Red Heart and they used one colour. Crochet Textured Throw.
                     These beautiful hats and scarves are from Margaret.

These squares were donated to us and it took me a while to figure out what colour to use to join them to make this blanket.
I finally choose the green and hoped it will work as a contrast colour. Well It worked and as you can see the squares just pops up. 

Another set of large squares we inherited and they were different in colour combination, so I used two that were similar in colour and made four more of the same size. then I joined them using the shell stitch. I find it gives a flat finish for large squares.

This blanket from the Leisure Arts book I love.
Snuggle Squares, this is the third blanket ( Clusters & Shells) I have done from this book.

 Lorraine from Richmond Hill, donated these lovely items, a baby blanket,

a lady's cardigan. Lorraine loves to knit sweaters and she does a great job at it.

                                                      Look at this one,

                                                   and this one too.

                                      Wonderful baby blanket.Thank you Lorraine.

Another successful day of great work. Thank you all.
