    Helping others with afghans

    Step into Vanna White¿s home and see the beautiful afghans she has created. She begins with the basic granny square and enlarges it to make a one square afghan. Then she shows what you can do using two yarns and a large hook but still the same granny square. Next she adds a pretty edging to the same basic granny square and comes up with another beautiful afghan. Finally using two colors, she creates yet a different look with the same basic square. If this is not enough, she then creates a ¿Log Cabin¿ type afghan. Not just for quilter¿s anymore! She makes a traditional Log Cabin and then one large log cabin. Of course a basic ripple is included in a scrappy one and a tonal one. Or use colors of your favorite teams or a seasonal theme. And finally she show strips. Now that she has you going with the basic patterns, she shows you 13 variations on a basic square. Pick and choose your combinations to come up with your own original afghan. She even presents a gallery of ways to put the squares together so you have an idea of what can be done. The yarn of choice is Vanna¿s Choice yarn by Lion Brand. It is soft and comfy feeling and comes in earth tones. Each project has a color photo and the instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. Skill level and yarn weight recommendations are also given with each project. Seven pages of general instructions include weight definitions and hook or needle sizing chart as well as the skill level definitions. If you have forgotten a basic, these pages will help you get going again. The final afghan pattern is call Warm Up America and is a charity for battered women¿s shelters, victims of natural disasters and the homeless. Take the time to make one and donate it. Visit the Warm Up America org on the web to find more information. All in all, it is great to see a STAR care about others and be willing to give of her time to help them.

    Patterns are mostly Grannysquare 'style' with the 3 stitch clust

    Patterns are mostly Grannysquare 'style' with the 3 stitch clusters with holes inbetween. This is for someone that is a beginner or only know Grannysquare style. There were a few other styles, but all were basic biginner's patterns. Boring and uninspiring! Not very attractive. I taught crochet at beginner, intermediate, advanced and master levels for over 30 years and in my opinion Grannystyle is 'done to death' though if you have a family heirloom one by all means treasure it! They do not make good lap-robes/throws for the elderly or afghans for homeless people as they are not warm enough. I volunteered at many nursing homes for 44 yrs. and there were always cupboards/closets full of these Grannystyles and rarely any ever in use. If you donate your time and yarn, please do something warm that will be used. There are all kinds of 'solid' square patterns out there. Thank you.
