Pixie - I can't get into my hotmail or PayPal. Can I send you a cheque to pass on or can I send it to someone else to buy some wool or fabric.

Or I can transfer some money to someone????

I'm really sorry, I only found this all of this this morning and have been sat at my desk in floods of tears...I can knit up a storm and would love to contribute. Can you point me in the right direction to fellow knitters who are making squares please?
Thanks for doing this

Womma, the details for the knitted squares are on
this thread.

strandednomore Tue 22-Mar-11 14:11:00

Sorry - I have obviously missed something but who is Edgar and why is everyone knitting?

KurriKurri Tue 22-Mar-11 14:12:10

Have PM'd you Pixie, - do we have a date when they need to be completed?

strandednomore Tue 22-Mar-11 14:21:56

Thanks for the link - how awful sad Haven't been on MN much recently so missed it all.

womma Tue 22-Mar-11 14:22:47

Rightio, please will you put me down for a knitted square? I can do one, or more if needed.

I'll keep checking this thread and I guess I wait for a pm now.

I'm supposed to go out tonight to a colleague's leaving do but I just want to go home and see DD now after reading all of this. We don't realise how lucky we are

I would like to knit a square, I have fabric for a square as well.
I will PM Pixie.

Sending you and your family lots of love EdgarAlenPie x x

CherryMonster Tue 22-Mar-11 16:13:45

cant knit or quilt, but am happy to sew knitted squares together xxx

MmeLindt Tue 22-Mar-11 16:40:18

I donated on Paypal but if there is anyone who would like to knit and cannot because of financial difficulties, PM me and I will send you wool and pins, if needed. If you tell me what to send - and I must be able to order it online as am abroad.

{squidge} for Edgar and family

You can usually get knitting needles and occasionally crochet hooks in charity shops, but they're kep under the counter because theyre dangerous weapons of stupid H&S rules.

CherryMonster, I've got the construction covered, but it's turning into a gargantuan task, and I suspect that well over 100 squares will be raining through my letter box in the next week or two. I may just take you up on that offer! Or, if you're Dorset/Hants we could work on it together?

MummyBerryJuice Tue 22-Mar-11 19:22:52

What is the deadline on this?

purple, how are you going to work the squares together? Have you got enough of the same coloured yarn to do so? Will the funds for this come out of the donated funds?

Just wondering as I don't want this to be an unforseen financial burden for you.
