'A Right Royal Affair'.
Happy Saturday! Nice to have the weekend here again. Looks like rain to me here in the UK, nevermind.
I have some good news today. 'SIBOL' has been mentioned in 'Let's Knit' Issue 44 Jul 2011.
Back in the March issue of 'Let's Knit' they brought news of a competition which Great British Yarns was holding to celebrate the Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. It was called 'Wedding Bells' and they were inviting readers to take part.
I invited you all to help me make a 'Royal Wedding Blanket' and Ladies all over the World sent me beautiful Squares which I was so grateful for. We made a lovely Blanket and on April 29th we were very fortunate to win 1st Prize with our own 'Royal Wedding Blanket'. Thank you once again to everyone that took part and I'm over the moon today to read that the magazine is showing a picture of our Blanket and also a lovely write up.
If you click on the picture, it will take you to Flickr and you will be able to adjust the size in 'actions' so that you will be able to read it better.
I have said many times how much I enjoyed making this Blanket, the Squares were gorgeous. I appreciated each and every one of them. I do hope you will join me in making a Blanket for the 'Olympics London 2012' for next years Games. The Blanket will be sold on EBAY and all proceeds will go to a UK Charity.
I know we can do it again! If you would like details please pop over to SIBOL CHALLENGES for all details. Thanks for visiting SIBOL this afternoon.
