Working Together

It's just one small square...

...but it will join other small squares and become a community afghan for a family in need. This family tragically lost a two year old child in a car accident on New Year's Eve. An effort to make an afghan is underway and if you want to help, you can read about it here.

The squares for this afghan should measure 7"x7" and be made from soft acrylic yarn in blue and/or green. I used Caron Simply Soft in country blue and dark sage.

Today I read about another community afghan in the works for a family experiencing a similar tragedy. This project is the first of many for Project Compassion.

We can accomplish much when we work together.


  1. First I need to buy some washable wool yarn. It takes so little time to knit up a simple square. The one you made is very attractive. Thanks for spreading the word on PC.

  2. Congratulations on your efforts for such a worthy cause. Your life of service is an inspiration to many.

  3. I love your square. I'm nearly done with mine. Oh by the way tag your it. Read about it on my blog. I hope this makes you smile it did me.

  4. Tracy, Now this is so pretty. You take the most beautiful pictures of your things. Beautiful Job! I love the colors!!- Mary

  5. I, too, love your square. Your work is always so professional looking. I got a green one done today and will do another tomorrow. However, mine done look was good as yours. LOL!!

  6. I like the stripes, Tracy. Those are the same colors/yarn I am using. I had a bunch in my stash (the green left over from Mom's afghan).

  7. Thanks so much for posting about this, Tracy. I am sending two squares to Jen tomorrow. What a tragic loss.

  8. Your square is here! Thank you for helping us out by knitting this. I will send a photo to MamaBear when it's all put together.
