I consider myself very lucky to be part of a great community on Ravelry. I’ve found a lovely group of ladies (and a couple of guys) who are great fun to talk to, trade with, and just generally have fun with. Sometimes, though, sad things happen to those great people. Right now, one lady has a very sick nephew–a 10-year old guy waiting to have open heart surgery.
So, since this is a great group of people, a bunch of us have gotten together to make squares for an afghan for him. I whipped up my square today, since a cold, rainy spring day is a great day for getting out the crochet hook.
It hasn’t been blocked yet, so it is a little wavy, but for my first afghan square, I’m very happy with it. The yarn is Vanna’s Choice in colour Denim Mist. The pattern is a modified Autumn Leaves from the book [amazon_link id=”B003W0NW9G” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]50 Fabulous Crochet Squares[/amazon_link], with a few extra rows added to make the square 10″ across. (The colour in the picture is off because it is raining and dreary here today.)
As I was typing this entry up, I just heard that Jason is doing well. His doctors except the best, but it is still so sad that such a young man has undergone heart failure.
