granny squares for those that need them jan 2018

Recommended Posts

 

we have since opened a new thread as our posts were getting so long to load please join us and welcome to you all  .

this list is getting shorter and i hope we get more members to join in our cal!! Come  make some friends and squares and  have some fun!!

 

welcome to our members and any new members or want to be members you have come to the right place.

 

It is pretty simple really, we like to make granny squares. We found the best way to do it was to open up a thread on whom might want or need granny squares to maybe help complete an afghan for themselves or charity or anyone they chose. Every one could use some help as sometimes collecting enough squares seems  a daunting for any one single person.

If you would like to join us and make or receive some squares here is the info I will need from you to get you on our list.

We have some :yesangels l:c9 members that only send out squares at this time And a lot of us do both send out and receive some that is up to you Again you do not have to send out to receive squares.

Here is an example of the info you will need to send to me through a pm please do not   post your personal info on the thread as if you wanr squares that is just asking for spam. Info as follows.if you were on the list  but are no longer please just let me know and send me your info and ill get you back on ok  

 at some point if you are going to receive squares you will be asked to provide this info  example:

Anne Ghan ( your name first and last ) 

screen name   annghan44

 1234 Square Plaza. (Your address)

Friendship Springs Ne.

Zip code here.

Email address and

Birthday month is  optional 

size color and preferences for squares you like or need as we will   pm or message  you to ask for your addy if we have some squares to send to you we also keep track of preferences on this first post (see list below)  

its as easy as that

Most of us use RHSS or a comparable 4 ply acrylic yarn. So if you would prefer 6 inch ( or 8 or 12) squares

In shades of greens for instance it could read as such. .

 

"I am looking for 8 inch squares in shades of greens or blues. variegated yarn is ok if in those shades,and solids or mixed of those colors is fine   thank you

please pm me or email for my current address  and thank you   .

 

 

 

 Please check this post regularly for updates and changes.

until i can get  info on an update i would advise that you contact the party for  current addy,wants and or needs thank you !!

. You do not have to send in order to receive it is up to you if you would like to send out some as well to our members

We have lots of talented and generous people on this thread and w like to chat so if you are looking for some squares or some new friends or some place to make or send grannys to or even New Square Friends then please join us. You might end up with a truly one of a kind Ghan that soon becomes one of your favorites not to mention some  new friends you might make !!

we need some new members to "square" for!!

 

some   of our members are listed below by their birth month and current preferences  Some need updates     

some of our long term members listed below can help with if you have questions as well or forward your concerns and i will try to answer them as well , as these long termers are more likely to post a lot and you can catch them for help if you need to as well

Thank you Katy for our new home!.  Since we have a new thread for 2018 I was wondering if the year in the old thread should be changed back to 2017.

 I just thought that since that thread covered 2016 and 2017 that having 2018 in the title might be confusing for some but if you changed it then your archive request wouldnt make since without you changing the title there also.  

You know I can tell a difference on how this thread loads on my phone.

he he  glad it helped you and yeah then i would have to amend that request and thought that might screw them up so just said to close or archive it and didn't want this thread to read too differently so that our mias couldn't identify with it lol so dont know when but the fix is in   to close  the old one   thanks!!

Glad you opened a new one, as if I remember part of the problem was the old one was to long and made it difficult to get into.

Checked the info is correct. 

Have fun today.

Forgot to add the graph ghan I am working on.  This is in progress.

Awesome! Mary Jo ~ I love working with different ways of crocheting.  The graphing looks like fun.  I use to, and still have some magazines with the graph patterns, so need to get them out and work up some of those.  Is this a kit that you bought to make graphs from photos or other media?  If so, this would be a neat thing to try and make a graph out of some of my pictures of my Appaloosa horses I use to have ~ what a neat afghan this would make!

Sorry Carole, but I went on FB to a group called Free Graph Patterns.  They will make a graph for you.  They are a great group.

I use to have software on my computer, but when I went to Windows 10, it stopped working.

I like the graph ghans, and this is one of the easiest I am doing.

That's wonderful about the group on FB!  I may have to go visit them ~ :)   It's just an idea I've had to do something with my horse pictures, and your blankets are a wonderful way to do this.  Thanks.  I've never done a graph-ghan, so this will be interesting.

My son does computer work in the Navy, and he is NOT sold on Windows 10 at all.  He told me to wait for the next system change and keep using our Windows 7, hoping the next one will be better.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  :manyheart

I went and laid down for wasn't feeling the grandest. I am up while everyone else is sleeping including the fur babies. Hercules doesn't like me being to far but he was sleeping on the bed so I snuck out. He picked up his head and I told him I would be right back. Well I got a few things done so I better get to bed cause morning comes way to early . 

See you all tomorrow or should I say today.

Good Morning,

Hope everyone is keeping warm this morning.  Sitting here in my Grumpy (from Snow White) jammies.  They are, now don't laugh, like the insulated underwear you wear under you cloths to keep warm.

I am all ready for New Years Eve and Day for food.  Not stepping foot outside the door today except to get the mail.

Working on the afghan today.

Hope all have a fun day and keep warm.

a year ago on jan 2 i was in the hospital and  in   the next 3 days i had under gone 4 surgeries  so i am counting my blessings!!  the recovery was long painful and tedious ss i practically had to learn how to walk again as being there  for a month my muscles atrophied so added to my recovery struggle    as well

l  was a long road but once i got the stitches out and got to stop those infusion antibiotics in my vein for 8 weeks 4 times a dy and night to combat the infection  in mid Feb then my progress picked up considerably  so i am one happy camper i am almost back to normal dr. was right in saying it might  be a year or more  before i would be feeling normal  so i am grateful to be   normal again!! or as normal as i am going to be lol it was a long fight but im here just maybe a little worse for the wearis all  but  happy to be here :clap  

one of my biggest thrills was to see you all on the thread again that was a happy day!!l  as was my pretty blue ghan you all made and sent me :ghug

Would love to hear what your memories of this past year are and what makes you happy or how you feel about another year starting!!      a new year is almost upon us  ??wow already?? huh !!
