Beer and knitting. . . what a combination

I may not be a Hokie, but I am a college student. This has really hit home for Hawkeyes because we had a similar situation back in 1991. 5 people were shot and killed on our campus and 1 was paralyzed from the arms down. Tuesday we also had a bomb threat in one of our buildings, so there was a lock down of 2 of the buildings. The University of Iowa board has also revised the safety policies. This kind of shit shouldn't happen, EVER. Please help the Mosaic Yarn Shop in their efforts to help comfort the victims and victims' families. Thanks!

Crocheted squares are welcome and appreciated as well.

Color choices for squares: Maroon, Burnt Orange, White, Black

Please knit or crochet squares out of the nicest, softest yarn you can afford.

Please mail squares to:
Mosaic Yarn Shop
880 University City Blvd.
Blacksburg, Va

Thank You to all participants!
The staff of Mosaic

On another note: I have also been working on my Hawkeye socks. I just had to take this pic. . . . . just for the hell of it

I promised a picture of my new stash enhancement. . . .here it is, enjoy!

OMG-- i have that same yarn (misti alpaca) in the same color.... but it's fingering lace. lol.
Maybe i can trade you for something if you need it. I don't know if i'm gonna use it for the project i have in mind.

P.s- i leave on the 18th, i think.

I would show you a pic of the yarn i died, which turned out in to be in Christmas colors (ha ha- not intended... the blue looked more green than anything), but I'm pretty sure it's at home, or buried severely in my stash.

p.p.s- for a second, i thought that grey yarn was "wool-ease" and I thought for a second...liz lately &! But then i looked more closely.

and damn, my (50g)fingering lace was more expensive that you (100g?) skein. It was $6.50.
