'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Sunniest Sunshine Blanket

Hi, dear sibol-friends!
Lovely initiative Sue, this blog!
I'm so proud to participate in the sunshine blankets. I love to crochet the squares, it's so much fun.
Last night I couldn't sleep. Suddenly I had this idea:
Why don't we all crochet a few sunshine squares in sunshine colours to make the Sunniest Sunshine Blanket of the year.
I've made this "blanket" of images to inspire you all:

Don't you love the colours? All the different shades of yellow, orange, pink and a little bit of red.
Are you inspired by these colours and shapes, please crochet or knit the most sunny squares you can imagine and send them to Sue.
I can't wait to see the result.

  1. Wow! Karin! This is a challenge!!
    What a fantastic idea!
    More work I love it.
    Gotta start thinking now!!
    I'm so happy you've taken part in my 'team blogging!'. I hope others will pop over.We must spread the word!
    Thank you Karin x

  2. I love this idea! Yellows and oranges are two of my favorite colors. Count me in!

  3. Hi!
    I would love to contribute :)
    What size should the squares be in cm's ?
    I only have cotton yarn, but it can be warm washed in machine and is strong and soft. Would it be ok?
    Where should the squares be sent to?

    You can see my yarn over at my blog

    Have a nice day!

  4. 'Sunniest Sunshine Blanket'.
    Idea by Karin. (see above post)
    6" Squares Knitted or Crocheted.
    Acrylic if possible as it washes better.
    But if you haven't got that please do not worry
    just send anything you can.
    REMEMBER. Karin wants this to be the 'Sunniest Sunshine Blanket' so let your imagination run riot!
    Make your Square
    Email me (Sue) for my address if you haven't got it already.
    Send your Square off to me.
    I will put the Squares together and make the

    Thanks Karin for the great idea.
