These are 2 of the 3 afghans I made for our United Way Campaign last year. Different people donate items and then we have a not so silent, silent auction. The one with the trees I got out of one of Vanna White's pattern books. It is crocheted using 2 strands of yarn.

The snowflake afghan I got the pattern online at
Very quick and easy.

Another afghan for the Fellowship Center. My DH loves this one. I may have to make him one like it.

afghan and shawl

This shawl is partially my own design, it is a shell crochet with a collar and pockets. The pockets are mine I decided to make them because I made it too long. The rest of the shawl I got from a knitted picture.

The lap afghan is from an unfinished full size afghan I had started years ago. I took it apart because I didn't have the yarn to finish it. I make lap afghans throughout the year to give to the seniors at a fellowship center in my county for Christmas gifts.
