She's out of control and here are some of her recent projects: Rocktober, Wicked Witch, and Retro Rib!

Afghan garners an estimated $700 for UUFH!

At the 2008 Services Auction, our Seaside Sampler afghan raffle earned an estimated $700 for UUFH! The afghan was won by Terry D's sister, who said she was thrilled. Here's the final photo of all the UU Ewes with our masterpiece!

Our "Seaside Sampler" Afghan is complete!

One year, 10 knitters, and 99 squares later, our beautiful Services Auction afghan is complete! We knit the full-size afghan during 2008 in a warm toast color in soft, superwash 100% wool (so it's not only cozy but practical, too!). The afghan's seaside theme is appropriate to our Long Island fellowship, with squares named "Fishing Nets", "Sandy Lines", and "Sea Wall", among others. And it's a perfect metaphor for our faith, with all the many different-textured squares united in one monochromatic piece.

The afghan will be raffled off on 11/15/08 at UUFH's annual services auction (raffle tickets $10 each, 3/$25).

Thanks to all the UU Ewes who contributed squares: Frances, Dove, Carol, Kathryn, Maria, Liz, Gerri, Sylvia, and Ginny!
