The local knitting guild I belong to recently had a great class on gauge. The swatches everyone made were donated to me for a lapghan. Below is a picture.
It will be donated to the VFW for use at the VA hospital. Another of our members, Sandy donated some knit strips that needed to be joined together. It turned out to be a lovely blanket and I'm planning on donating it for a yard sale our group is having to raise money for a local boy who was critically injured a few weeks ago.
