SciFi Chris with more blankets created by 3RC folks.

First up is camera shy Theresa with a Seatles Seahawk afghan she is knitting for her nephew.  Isn't it amazing looking?  She designed it herself.  She had previously made a Steelers helmet afghan, which went into the annual charity sale and then went to my brother-in-law. 

Nicole found an afghan kit in a thrift store, full of this beautiful yarn.  She's making a corner to corner afghan for her grandmother.  The photo doesn't do the bright colors justice. 


Original Chris is making this star afghan.  Its not done and its not blocked, but you can see the lovely pattern.  The yarn is very soft and will be wonderful to cuddle up in, once its done.

Constance is working on a graduation present and was feverishly working on it to get it done in time.  I wish I'd gotten a close up of the varigated gray she is using.  

Rebecca is also working on a star afghan.  I love the way different yarns and different colors can make a similar pattern look so different.  This is another photo that doesn't do justice to the colors of the yarn.  

Another example of how different colors change the look of a pattern.  This is Carol with a corner to corner afghan.  I believe this one is also headed to Project Linus.  If you have donations for Project Linus (the requirements for making the afghans are on their website)  Carol is willing to collect them and deliever them to the Project Linus folks.  Just bring them to the weekly 3RC meeting at the Panera's Bread near Magee Women's hospital, Saturday 2 to 5.  


Before you can make an afghan, you need yarn.  Here's Rebecca and Karen wrapping yarn.  No, they aren't taking it off the swift, they are putting it on the swift.  They need to put the yarn in skeins so that they can dye it.  Once dyed, it will go up for sale by Amelia and Wiggles.
