comfortghan for my mom *COMPLETED! PHOTO ON POST 82*

Recommended Posts

I've been contemplating this for a while, and finally mustered up the courage to ask for some help! My mom has been sick with a myriad of illnesses for quite some time now (asthma, diabetes, blood pressure problems, eye issues, heart issues, mobility issues, etc.) and she is currently hospitalized for yet another bout of cellulitis in her leg. I think it would bring her a lot of joy (and warmth, she gets cold easy) for her to have her own comfortghan. I have yarn to do an afghan for her, but I just don't have the time between working and taking care of her.

I'm asking for 12" squares, in any pattern, in any shade of purple (it's her favorite color). My goal would be to make the ghan 5 feet across and 6 feet long, so I need 30 squares. Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated! PM me if you have any questions or if you need my address. :)

Update 12/30/10: As of right now, I have 17 squares in hand, with the final 13 promised by two ladies! I want to thank all of you for your kindness and generosity in helping me with this project. I am currently working on edging the squares I have and as soon as I stitch everything together, I'll be sure to put up lots of pictures!

Update 3/27/11: I currently have 18 squares in hand, and I'm fairly certain I will receive 3 that were promised, but the remaining 9 squares are still needed!

 

Update 3/29/13: I only have 18 squares, so I'm going to make 2 more and turn this into a lapghan for my aunt. Thank you for everyone who has participated, and I can't wait to show off the finished product!

Found some variegated purple RHSS

 

silly question though, when you say 12" do you mean diagonal or across? :P:blush

 

That's not a silly question, I actually asked the same one when I started making squares. You measure across the middle of the square.

Thank you both. :hug

 

My mom is still in the hospital--was planning on getting moved to rehab tomorrow, but had a setback yesterday when physical therapy couldn't hold her up when tranferring her to her bed and they had to sit her down on the floor (on top of her bad leg) and it fractured her fibula and two toes. She will be in rehab for a much longer time than originally anticipated.
