Warm December

I've been stocking up on all sorts of goodies for the elders at Cheyenne River. This is the time of year that the group (Native American Suport) tries to put a special emphasis on treating the "old folks" (those that use the Elderly Nutrition Services) to something special.

I've purchased lots of warm scarves, socks, and gloves, added in some sugar free candy and sweetener (diabetes runs rampant at Cheyenne River and on many reservations), and some hand cream and lip balm.

I've also started putting together the squares I've had for moths, into warm and cheerful afghans and laprobes.

One batch really had me stumped, though. The squares were big and colorful, and all the same pattern, but they were obviously made up of leftovers (not a bad thing) colors didn't quite coordinate. Black didn't look right as an edge. Ya know?

Then I found this "aubergine" (eggplant) yarn in my stash. Perfect!

I think that the borders tie the whole thing together:

It's about 38" square right now. A nice border will make it about 40" square. Okay for shoulders or lap.

Ooh! Looks good. I bow to your superior joinage, and such.
