Are there any objections if I use the leftover wool from the Edgar and Rindercella blankets to make something for Blondes? I've got loads! Anyone with leftovers feel free to pm me about either sending it on or sending more squares smile

Great idea, Pidjin. Makes sense and a lovely thing for Blondes to have.

purplepidjin Tue 10-May-11 12:27:09

I'll do what I can then. Do you fancy being lovely and letting her know?

KnottyLocks Tue 10-May-11 14:36:35

Dunno about lovely!

Have sent Blondes a PM. Will let you know when I hear from her, bless her heart. sad

purplepidjin Tue 10-May-11 14:48:02

You are lovely you've been very supportive!

KnottyLocks Tue 10-May-11 16:49:22

Pidj,

just heard from Blondes: she's very touched by the idea and would be honoured to receive one.

Right, to work then!

I'm having a think...maybe sometime.

purplepidjin Tue 10-May-11 17:37:28

I'm very glad she said yes I've made 4 squiares already! Yay for being bored grin

KnottyLocks Tue 10-May-11 18:27:28

Idle hands and all that!

How many have you got and how many do we need?

purplepidjin Tue 10-May-11 18:33:41

Until all the rindercella ones are in I can't tell. I should have a rough idea by the end of this week, though

Littlefish Tue 10-May-11 18:34:37

I will try really hard to send you something. Where should I send a square?

cheesesarnie Tue 10-May-11 18:38:04

are you knitting squares or crocheting?im sure ive got spare wool if thats any help?

purpleknittingmum Tue 10-May-11 18:43:47

No objections at all

KnottyLocks Tue 10-May-11 18:56:22

Pidjin, have just Pmed you. Put yer hook down for a minute.

Hello all, we're just sorting the admin bit out if you can bear with us. Will get back to you asap.

Ta muchly grin

trumpton Tue 10-May-11 18:59:10

Will do you 3. DB cashmerino. Let me know what colour.

KnottyLocks Tue 10-May-11 20:43:04

Ok, we're still working on the admin bit. However, if anyone is interested in contributing, either knitting or crocheting a square, or wanting to buy for others to knit, you can PM me.

Colours: pinks, blues, lilacs all good.

KurriKurri Tue 10-May-11 20:43:41

Do you have a date in mind for squares for Blondes? - I'd love to contribute, but I'm up to my eyeballs in a work project which has to be finished by end May/begin June, but if you want squares after that I'm happy to help. If that's too late, then I wish you good luck, you are a trooper purplepidjin smile

purplepidjin Tue 10-May-11 20:56:43

Ok, please please please don't send me wool, I'm swimming in it! Squares to the usual address (ie same as for Edgar and Rinders) PM me if you need it again grin

If woolly folks can match themselves with crafty folks that'd be best. Knitted or crocheted, 4mm hook or needles, 6" square, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino or Rowan Cashsoft in Double Knit (NOT baby cashmerino or chunky, please) and any pretty colours you like! Textures, mixed colours, motifs etc all welcome.

I'm still waiting for all the Rinders' squares to come in, so I won't get on to that until at least the end of this week. So, if I can get all the Blondes squares in by the end of the month that'd be awesome. Otherwise the timescales get silly hmm

KnottyLocks Tue 10-May-11 22:02:56

Rowan Cashsoft in the sale here

KnottyLocks Wed 11-May-11 11:38:17

I've had a knitter and donator Pm me.

I'm thinking we may need some more knitters.

Cooooooooooooooooo Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

purplepidjin Wed 11-May-11 11:48:32

Get a thread up in aibu or chat where there's more traffic? I'll keep ploughing through what I've got!

KnottyLocks Wed 11-May-11 16:47:45

Pidj, I've Pmed you if you've got a second.

purplepidjin Wed 11-May-11 18:25:18

Pmed back smile

Last time we asked for 60 and got over 170!

KnottyLocks Wed 11-May-11 18:32:35

Guiness Book of Records here we come.

Now, that's made me thirsty.

purplepidjin Wed 11-May-11 22:00:06

Blood test tomorrow sad or I'd have had to have an end-of-week glass of vino. Yay for shift work!

MmeLindt Wed 11-May-11 22:02:01

Oh, well done everyone.

Sad that we have the need for yet another blanket though.

Do you need any money for postage? Am happy to donate towards it.
