This is just a quick update on the blankets project. As you might remember, we were going to have a ‘stitching party’ to make blankets from the little squares that came from the Gaspereau Valley Fibres. While I was waiting for the responses about possible locations, the small squares became a little larger — 12 x 12 inches, to be precise. Wouldn’t it be nice to have ‘missing’ squares in a neutral solid colour to finish this blanket?
So I brought those squares to our knitting group meeting today, and we looked at them, and… guess what? The group decided that we will have a BIG stitching party during our next meeting, on February 4. I can’t tell you how awesome it is because we have quite a few knitters!
It also makes sense to have a trial run with the volunteers who already offered their help — I will keep you posted about that, too.
So — if you are in — get your hooks and needles ready and stay tuned!
