2010 Pine Street Inn Knit-a-Thon

Today was the fourth annual Pine Street Inn Knit-a-Thon!

I reached my goal of two complete afghans! They are pretty different from each other, and I am very happy with the results. My stash of remnant yarn is almost completely depleted at this point.

The event occurred at the State House in the base of the grand staircase. There was a huge turnout, tables were filled with women and men knitting, crocheting, and sewing squares together. Donations are still being collected, so I'm not sure how much we were able to raise from this year's event.

My two blankets!

The full pattern of each blanket I created.

My afghans joined the ones already completed along the grand staircase.

Thank you all for taking time to read about my preparations for this event for the last few months. I am really happy with what I've been able to accomplish here. Now, on to saving yarn for next year!
