Dawn's Comfortghan is on it's way to her!
I didn't want to post this until I was pretty sure that Dawn would have this ghan first. I want to thank everyone who contributed to this project. The response was pretty overwhelming. I don't know what else to say, e
xcept to let Dawn know how shocked we are at the senseless violence. I joined the squares with Bernat Berella 4 in Winter White using a "faux" braid joining furnished by one our CP'ers. I then used #34 edging from 50 Crocheted Afghan Borders by Jean L. There were about 50 people involved in the creation of these afghans. Squares were crocheted and mailed to me, another person provided the method of joining, and still other sent money for yarn and postage. This was definitely a group effort from the heart.

Very nice! I thought I contributed a square, but I don't see it. Maybe it's the top right one? Anyway, thanks for doing this. I'm sure Dawn appreciates your effort to coordinate and assemble this comfortghan on behalf of her son.

it is gorgeous. I hope Dawn is really comforted by all our thoughts and prayers, though nothing will be able to replace her son for her. Thanks for taking on this project, and posting pics!

Dear Cay: I hope that you received
my 2 blue squares-- I sent them from Israel as fast as I could.
If they didn't make it into Dawn's
afghan, use them for charity.
sincerely, s.schiffman, Efrat, Israel
