We have heard the dreadfully sad news that Chipmonkey's baby daughter died unexpectedly this week. Condolence thread is here Chipmonkey has said tonight that she would love to receive a MN blanket.

Because Knotty is snowed under a mountain of wool, I am taking on the coordination for this, so if you are a donor or a crafter needing a match - please PM me and I will match you up. I know there is an amazing army of donor, knitter and crochet stars, and I am hoping that you will feel able to help with this blanket too.

So if you feel that you can help, please PM me with your offers: crafting, donating, need wool, don't need wool, and I will sort it all out, and when you are ready to post, PM me for the address.

I will have to get back on the deadline...

But thank you in advance.

MaryMary - I've replied to you smile

What size squares are needed?

RatherBeOnThePiste Thu 06-Oct-11 23:15:24

the squares are 6"

VeryLittleGraveEaters Thu 06-Oct-11 23:15:41

Do you want any decorative applique bits? If not then I can do a couple of squares (have just learnt Tunisian crochet,which is knitting with a hook)

KnottyLocks Thu 06-Oct-11 23:16:39

6" squares

Wool is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK or Rowan Cashsoft DK

Blues, pinks, purples, greens, silver/greys

Squares can be plain, striped, patterned - your choice.

If appliqued, it must be in the same wool type. Thanks.

I have wool and will do a couple of squares. Where do we send them?

I'm about to have DC2 so will do the squares today and would like to get them posted ASAP.

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 07-Oct-11 06:27:18

Am so impressed that you can do squares in one day TheRealMBJ! Takes me most of a week for one very basic thing smile

Morning smile

Plain garter stitch squares are awesome.

Fancy stitches are awesome.

Flowers, hearts, initials etc are awesome.

Your level of skill bears no relevance to this project - as always, the one square that someone teaches themself to knit is as more valuable than the double figures sent by more experienced crafters.

Anyone who gets into the swing of things and wants to carry on, see [[http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/arts_and_crafts/1315704-Fancy-knitting-a-blanket-or-even-a-bit-of-one-to-give-to-women-and-children-escaping-domestic-violence this thread] smile thanks

rubycon Fri 07-Oct-11 07:22:01

I'll knit, have pm'd you.

KnottyLocks Fri 07-Oct-11 07:26:29

BOF, if the wool you have is DK but not Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK or Rowan Cashsoft DK, it can be used for the Woman's Refuge project.

I am a simple knitter and would love to help. What size square do we knit?

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 07-Oct-11 07:41:49

Thank you Candice, just got your pm and have replied too, but they are...

And very many thanks

Knotty - I have been asked a technical question re crochet confused Does it matter what size hooky thing you use for this if you are a crochet star?

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 07-Oct-11 08:00:34

Am off to work in a mo, back early this afternoon, so if anyone sends me a PM, please don't think I'm ignoring you, I will definitely get back to you then!

If you would like wool sent to you, please PM me your address
If you would like to donate, please PM me

AND very many thanks for your support. thanks

I have ordered wool for me to knit and will pm you for address when I have done squares.

So sad to be doing more squares so soon. Love to Chipmonkey.
