The pattern is old, and I've been working on mine forever, so this afghan is anything but new. It is, however, at this very moment, a "hot new project" on Craftster!
This is a first for me, and I'm quite pleased! (Thanks, Danielle, for pointing this out to me!)
Funny how things work... I posted it yesterday because I was bored and because I figured I could use the opportunity to solicit some yarn scraps. I got one offer yesterday before I got a message from the moderators that soliciting a personal swap is not allowed. So they deleted that part of my post, but the begging is still in my signature!
It's not like I have a short supply of scraps; I just like the idea of people from all over the world owning a little piece of my blanket (not that I'll actually share it!).
Here's a list of people, besides myself, who have contributed so far:
Danielle A. - Salem, NH
Grammy Pratt - Oakfield, ME
Vandy - Fresno, CA
Homerof2 - Toronto, Canada
ThreadOrYarn - Quincy, MA
There are more pictures in the flickr set, where you can watch its progress as I add on clumps of yo-yos from different people.
