An FO~ But Not The One I Mentioned...

See what happens when you have a bazillion projects going at a time? Sometimes you finish a lot of them all around the same time. Then it looks like you are a mad crocheting woman. Hee hee.  This is my third Pressed Flowers Afghan! I wonder when I started my first one. Anyway, this is for Nia. A 13 or 14 year old girl on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.  I send things to her Grandma, who is raising her and her little cousin.  I made her cousin an afghan a year or two ago: Granny Star Afghan for Dre.  (What do you know? There's another Pressed Flowers Afghan in that post... How weird is that? :P) 

One side, folded up. I used some variegated yarns in this one. And black, and white. I broke my own "rules" for the first two of these I made. (No black or white, no variegateds...)  :P  I know, I'm strange.  :P

And the other side, folded up.  I still have not heard anything from the other girl I made one of these for.  Delivery Confirmation said it was delivered. But...  I don't trust it.  :/    ~~~Anyway~~~   I hope she likes it. Her Grandma does write to me and says thank you once in a while. (They also send me jewelry they made for me.)  So...  <3  That isn't why I do this, but it's nice to know what you do is appreciated.  :)

Here is an afghan I started for the Grandma. <3  It's just like mine. Except, different colors in different orders...   I love my afghan.

And, I got my sons' afghan out, to start working on it again last night. Since I finished Nia's. (I was using the off white for hers...)  It's just a rectangle granny.  But... I like it. I hope he will, too.  I made one like this (different colors) for their Grandpa.

That's very nice afghan Tina! I really admire how you share your talent and help them at the same time not only with things but with moral support as well. Makes me ponder on what I can do here...
