I've just heard the sad news about Magic8ballhasstheanswers leaving 6mo twins and a 4yo
If anybody would like to show their condolences, post here and we'll organise it. I'll take on construction again unless someone else would like a turn?
IvySedai (who messaged me to let me know) is happy to co-ordinate so PM's from Donors and Crafters needing a match to her please.
Previous squares were 6", knitted or crocheted. Blues, pinks and purples were the most popular colours. Debbie Bliss Cashmerino or Rowan Cashsoft DK (links are just the first ones I found on google) It's also available in John Lewis.
Lastly, was there anything in particular that Magic liked and could be incorporated in the design?
I think I'm having techno meltdown - because I've checked both my email addresses and can't see anything.
Its not something tricksy in my personal settings that I need to do to receive a message, is it?
Alternatively, provided that it isn't a name changer I know Littlefish, who I think was on this thread so will email her directly - apologies for utter cack handedness on technology front. Perhaps I should be moving across to Gransnet.
If you're on a proper computer, Wooluff, have a look at the top of the page. Two purple boxes side by side in the centre. Left hand one says "Log out" and the right hand one has an envelope beside and then says "Inbox"
My square is in the post today. Only the one this time, sorry. The wrong yarn was sent to me, and there wasnt time to replace it, but I managed to cobble together a square out of four short scraps of yarn left over from Blondes' blanket.
Just wanted to update this thread so everyone who contributed can know what happened. We handed 3 blankets over to magic's husband today, one for each of his girls. They were so beautiful and he was incredibly touched. Thank you everyone who knitted a square or donated money to buy wool. And big thanks to the lovely ladies who turned a heap of little squares into 3 of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
