I am very pleased to be showing you some gorgeous Squares which have arrived today!
The first one is for our 'Your Local Landscape' Challenge. I am 'really desperate' to get in some more
Squares for this particular Challenge and if you think you would like to take part then please do so. I am trying to make a Blanket up which is going to be sent to Jersey Textile Showcase 2012 to be held in March.
Our special Blanket will 'hopefully' be exhibited and then sold to raise money for Mencap which is a very worthwhile Charity. But.....I need more Squares!
Do you have a favourite view that you think you could possibly put into a Knitted or Crocheted Square? Do you live near to a famous Landmark? Why not have a go? Let's take a look at jenniferannes' Square which arrived today! She has beautifully made the Forth Bridge in Scotland. She has used DK Acrylic yarn and the bridge itself is made from shirring elastic! What a fantastic idea. She took inspiration from a photograph of the Forth Bridge, and she has captured it so well! The water is so very interesting, the shades of green and blue and then we look upwards to the Bridge which is just magnificient. The detail is 100% spot on!
Thank you so much jenniferanne, I love your Square!
If you think you could help me along with this one, then please email me. Sue on firstname.lastname@example.org so I know what numbers we are expecting. I have to send the Blanket off in February so I really need these Squares in as soon as possible please.
Jean Nock has also sent in some interesting Squares today. She has made some for our 'SIBOL' Stash and also some for the 'Knit Today' Challenge. I only need 3 more Squares to finish off our third 'Knit Today' Blanket so if you would like to have a go then please mail me email@example.com I am still waiting to see if 'Knit Today' feature our other two Blankets.
She was also very kind to send in some pretty Butterflies, thank you so much Jean Nock I love the Squares and the Butterflies!
I do collect Butterflies for our 'Butterflies' stash. The usual ones we make are from Nettie but of course if you would like to make any other type then please do and then send them to SIBOL. Pop over to Netties Blog she has a great video tutorial!
Thank you Jean Nock and jenniferanne, I am most grateful to you and I would love other Ladies to join in this Challenge.
