PHFR Yarn Along

Pi Day celebration last week involved a very last-minute Chocolate Meringue Pie---as in I made it just before dinner and it requires 6 hours of chilling. Oh well. It was stunning and we enjoyed a rousing game of Scrabble while letting it chill a little. The chocolate was kind of runny when we ate it.


This colorful stack of 7x9 rectangles for our AHG troop project. We are teaching the girls to crochet and make the rectangles so that we can turn them into blankets for the homeless. It's part of the Warm Up America project. I made a bunch of these myself, but I've been focusing on outlining all of the squares with black. It's kind of a tedious job that the girls won't like, but it will make the blanket look much better when they crochet them together.

Maybe this isn't really funny, but it's kind of amusing to see the shapes and sizes of some of the rectangles from our beginning stitchers. The one on the top right was made by an adult and was so misshapen that I had to work some magic to turn it into a rectangle of the appropriate size. I'm pretty sure that was her first one.  She has improved dramatically and has made a baby blanket and cowl in addition to more rectangles.

Here's a better picture:

I'm really proud of all the girls (and moms) who are working hard to learn a new skill to benefit the homeless. Everyone is improving, and even if they have a hard time getting uniform shapes, their efforts are not going to waste!

I got my little stack of completed rectangles and went to the box to see how many more I needed to do. I was really pleased with my accomplishment in the past week...until I pulled out this stack. 
27 down. 65 to go.
