We had a massive donation of big squares from a lovely lady who is the aunt of a friend.
She'd made them with the view that they would be lovely baby blankets but unfortunately they were too small at 19inches squares each. So I put most of them together to make a massive teen/young adult size...
I had one square left over so I made that one into another baby blanket
We also had two more baby blankets donated, this time from a local group called 'The Knitting Nanas'
Absolutely lovely, thank you so much!
Our good friend Bonnie also finished off the toddler sized blanket she was putting together from donated squares-isn't it beautiful? She uses a different method putting squares together that I'm keen to try out...
The last blanket from donated squares is another toddler size-there were a number of odd or left over squares, different sizes and they ended up to one side-
Very pretty I think!
Just before our big handover night, my friend Gaelle brought over a stunning toddler blanket that she has made-it is so soft and lovely!
We've had our massive handover evening which I will post separately but there were a few blankets brought on the day that I'd like to show you as well...
These two were brought along by Susan and Julie who have come along to our meetups and helped put together the group blankets-they are really lovely!
Another blanket was brought along by Harrie-it was made by her friend in memory of her baby daughter-it's a beautiful knitted blanket xxx
Last, and most definitely not least, is a beautiful blanket made by my lovely friend Harrie! It was from a conversation with her a few years ago when I was teaching her how to make a granny square that she told me about Cwtch of Comfort and when she reminded me earlier in the year, it resulted in a fantastic effort by so many people :-D She has made a pink and white blanket in memory of her friend's son who died tragically-it is called 'May the Force be with You' as he was a big Star Wars fan xxx
So, stay close for the big finale! Myf is going swimming so I shall thrill you with all the details when we get home.....
