'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.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 58 'Circle of Friends' - ''Celia's Happiness' - named by Merchy

Thanks to everyone who contributed Squares for this Challenge. 'Circle of Friends!'. 'please add note' to your Square. Let's see if we can get each Square filled with 'add note'. Thank You!

Good afternoon Everyone!

I have a Ta - Dah for you.  You'll be very pleased to know that 'Circle of Friends' is finished. I do hope you will like it. 

Merchy has very kindly agreed to name this Blanket. She has recently lost her dear Grandmother and I thought it would be really nice for her to choose a name in Memory of her Grandmother. Her Square was also the last to come in for this Blanket. 'Celia's Happiness' is a lovely name and I'm sure her Grandmother would be very pleased that Merchy has made this jointly with her friends. So thank you Merchy!

The Squares that came in for this Challenge were all so lovely.  I have to admit I was never keen on this Square but after 'finally' putting it together (it actually took me three attempts!) I'm really taking a shine to the pattern. 

I would like to thank the '25' Ladies who took part in this special Challenge on SIBOL your contributions have been beautiful! I love each and every one of these Squares.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 58!

If you are interested in our 'SIBOL' Swap which Aishwarya is organising please pop over to Ravelry Hurry up though, this months deadline is tomorrow! Have fun with Aishwarya over on Ravelry SIBOL.

Have a nice evening everyone!


  1. Love it. Amazing to see all the colors everyone picked.

    FYI. All together ready to border up and then will have it back on it's way.

  2. That is really beautiful Sue, I didn't have a go at this one, they look so pretty all joined together, well done. xx

  3. Delicate....love the combination of colors.Lovely.Congratulations !


  4. This is such a beautiful and special blanket...
    I think my grandmother would have felt very warm and happy with it on her knees.
    I feel honoured. The name I have chosen is "Celia's Happiness" in memory of her, who passed away recently. Sue very sensitively has offered me to name this blanket in my mother's memory and I am very, very thankful for this gesture.
    Thanks to all Siboletts who contributed and particularly to you, Sue. The blanket has come out really well!
    Have a nice week you all.
