We're in 'Knit Today!!!!'

Good afternoon everyone and thanks for popping in to 'SIBOL'.

I have some very good news for you today. We have been featured in 'Knit Today' October 2012 issue.

A few months ago Kate Horwath contacted me and asked if she could do a telephone interview about our Olympic blankets. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. 'Knit Today' have always been so supportive of our work and it was a pleasure to answer her questions and send along some photographs.

You can imagine how happy I was this morning to see our beautiful blankets in the magazine.

I would like to thank Marie Parry and Kate Horwath for contacting me with regard to the article but I would also like to thank everyone that sent in squares for these particular blankets. We were certainly very successful with this particlar Challenge and it was an honour to work with your beautiful squares. They simply were amazing!

Knit Today 'October 2012'.

Did you know that the 'Art of Crochet' was back in the shops? The first issue is only 99p.

For years I have longed for a new Crocheting magazine. Step by Step one. Here it is at last!

I had an email from a Lady this morning asking me for my address, she had 100 squares for me. Of course I was really really happy to hear this, but unfortunately I had to explain that we have a 'Square Stop' on at the moment till January.

I asked if she could possibly make the squares up into blankets for us and she was only too pleased to do so.

I am really sorry about this but I have 14 bags of squares left here plus Challenge squares and I really need to put a hold on accepting squares until January 2013. I am determined to get these bags made up before I take any more.  Quite a few Ladies on RAVERLY are helping me out assembling them which is really so lovely of them.

Of course Ladies are making their own blankets for 'SIBOL' while I am doing so and of course I am terribly grateful for these too!  It's a great way of keeping my numbers up while I'm busy assembling these squares.

If you are interested please pop over to our SIBOL CHALLENGE Blog.

So.....if you are visiting 'SIBOL' through the 'Knit Today' magazine today this is my current situation.
Any queries at all please feel free to contact me Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net

The Olympic blankets shown today were from a recent Challenge but of course we are busy throughout the year making blankets for our Elderly folk in Nursing Homes. To-date we have made 252! Thanks everyone!

I hope you like the article!
