'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.

Olympic and Textured Squares from the UK!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today.

I'm very happy to be showing you some Squares that have just this minute arrived.


Linda from here in the UK has very kindly sent me two Squares for our Challenges.

The first one is the 'Swedish Flag' for our Olympic Blanket. How cool is that! I am so pleased Flags
are starting to arrive now.  If I could just say, you can Crochet any Flag for any Country if you want to, it doesn't have to be yours!

I know joyce28 is really enjoying Knitting different ones and 'I need more'.  We are trying to get this Blanket as interesting as we can.  Also if there is anything else you would like to Knit or Crochet on a Square for the Olympics please do.

For example bonsall has made Squares with Runners on...... I will give you the Flickr link where I am keeping all the Olympic Squares in one place so it's easy to see where we are. Please pop over and get some inspiration!

I love your Swedish Flag Linda thank you so much.

It's also lovely to see another Textured Square arrive this morning. Linda has made a fantastic one. If you look closely at Linda's Square. She has made a Square with the bobble pattern and then on the top of the Square we have a really lovely 'touchy feely' part. It's so woolly, warm to the touch.

I'm over the moon with both Squares Linda, thank you so....much.

Please don't forget the other Challenges too!

That's all for now,

  1. I love both squares! What a great idea to put the flag on a flag-pole. That way, the flag can be a rectangle, which is really what the flag shape should be! Great job!
