|Warm Up America|
|Welcome to our Warm Up America Page!
42 Women from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute got together to contribute the the Warm Up America Project by knitting or crocheting at least one 7" x 9" retangle to create and afghan. What an overwhelming response! The intention was to create one afghan to donate locally to a charity of our choice such as shelter, nursing home, VA hospital etc. It requires 49 retangles to create one afghan.
We received from those 42 people in excess of 220 rectangels! That is enough to make over 4 afghans!
We plan to put together at least two afghans and then maybe use the rest to make lap throws.
Here is some photos of the two that are completed. Click on the picture to view a larger view of the afghan. If you don't see your retangles there, keep checking back. We have a lot more to make!
Thank you again for all that contributed
