Yarn Yarns – Charity Afghans

In 2006 I knitted two blankets that were donated to Better Beginnings, a local charity which supports new moms. I just finished this one:


Which is based on a design by Elizabeth Zimmerman in Opinionated Knitter. The center detail:

I decided for 2007 to try and knit three baby blankets. I just started this one from Lily Chin’s Urban Knitter.


It is a log cabin baby blanket and the yarn I am using was donated to our guild for charity knitting. How could I resist these lovely reds?

Our knitting guild, the knitting knutz, has also decided to support the World War II museum and knit scarves for veterans. So I am going to try to do three scarves too. I haven’t started a scarf yet, but I have yarn left over after knitting the first baby blanket, so I might use that.
