troop hats and wedding afghan

The afghan for which I made the cross-stitch squares a while back has been delivered to the happy couple, so I can now post pics of it.

I made the 6" squares - we used 72 of them laid out 8 x 9. Daughter edged and assembled them. The edging is one daughter designed herself. What a team! :-)




I also received this wonderful outpouring of generosity in boxes and boxes of donated yarn from Beth W. in Texas. A good portion of this is cotton yarn and I can't wait to get my little hands on it. First I have to finish with the troop hats. Then yes, I'll be digging in. I will be making lots of dishcloths, squares, scarves and whatever I can with this generous donation.



A quick note about troop hats, and really anything you make. When joining yarn for whatever reason, please don't knot and cut or leave just an inch of yarn. Leave several inches, please, and sew it in. Also, if you work in a spiral, please make sure your final round ends up even with your previous round. Thanks!


Happy crocheting!
