Sue over at Sue's Favourite Things began a project at the beginning of the year to create blankets for the elderly. She asked if fellow crocheter’s might help in her project by contributing a square or two.
In Sue’s words:-
I hope you can help. If everyone could just send one square I would be most grateful. I know postage is expensive.
For those who would like information
6" x 6" - (15cms x 15cms)
Knitted or Crocheted
Acrylic I think would be better (if possible) don't worry if you haven't got Acrylic.
Any design, any colour. (Basic Granny Square or more involved up to you!)
Just odd bits of wool/yarn you have left over from projects. I don't want it to cost any one
No panic, no rush, no deadline. This is something I want to be doing all year.
The project has gone on to be a real huge success but she still needs more squares. If you are able and willing to help please pop over to her blog.
You can also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
The next issue of Inside Crochet, will also be covering Sue’s project, available in the UK in early June, 2010.
Below are more pictures of the beautiful blankets that have been created by a wonderful community of global crocheter’s.
You can see photos of all the contributions from around the globe over at the SIBOL Flickr group.
