Looking for a way to get through the dog days of Summer? How about knitting up some afghan blocks for our Charity Knit-a-Long project? Here is the latest, our pattern for August, Waves in Motion. I like how this one is pretty from both sides, but the ends don't curl up like in similar patterns. Also, waves make me think beach, which makes me think ocean breezes, which makes me think COOL....!
Enjoy, let me know what you think and keep those blocks coming! It's a great project for your knitting group--I just received a package of 5 lovely blocks from a local group. Totally made me day! Thank you, Lyn, and your fellow knitters, for helping us reach our goal of sending as many blankets as possible to the Carolina Youth Development Center!!
