I'm very pleased to be showing you a gorgeous Landscape Square which has just arrived from Mia here in the UK.
Mia has very kindly Knitted this beautiful Square of 'The Seven Sisters'. What a stunning Square! She has made it beautifully. I'm so...grateful to you Mia for making the very last Square for this very special
If you are new to SIBOL I would just like to tell you that we are making a special one-off Blanket which will be sent off to the Jersey Textile Showcase event which will be taking place in March in Jersey itself. It will hopefully be exhibited and then afterwards the Blanket will be sold to raise money for Mencap. When I first of all saw this event advertised I thought wow this would be a great Challenge for our SIBOL Group. I announced it and at first the Squares were slow to come in but I'm very happy to say that we have now got enough to make a Blanket. With this last Square arriving today I shall just add this Square in now and add the border. I will send it off straight away once I have taken photos for you all.
I'm extremely happy that we have had enough Squares to make a Blanket, and I just hope it will raise a reasonable amount of money for this worthy cause. In our SIBOL Group we like to help out certain charities from time to time. Last year we took part in a special competition in which we won first prize. We made the Royal Wedding Blanket shown over on the right hand side bar. On Ebay this Blanket made £112.00 which was sent off to Prince William and Kate Middleton's Charity Gift Fund.
I also have a Blanket coming in from Lotti over on Ravelry who very kindly organised a 'Think Pink' Blanket to raise money for Breast Awareness. So I do hope you will look out for this one too. It will be with me over the next few days. So it's all exciting here on SIBOL!
I would also like to say a Big Thank you to Tracy who has very kindly sent in a donation of yarn today for our Group. I'm very grateful to you Tracy. If you remember we recently sent some Blankets off to Dorset C.C. to help Elderly in need. Thank you very much.
So I'll crack on with this special Blanket now. Thank you very much to Mia and to Tracy, and thank you for visiting SIBOL today!
