Following on from the blanket for Magic8 which is under construction, we'd like to offer one to Whatevertheweather who has recently lost her baby daughter.

I know there is already an army of knitters and crocheters and donors out there; would anyone be able to join us?

I'll send money, I can't knit. Please let me know where it is to go.

Lorelai Wed 31-Aug-11 07:22:59

I can knit, is someone going to be organising matching donors with knitters?

DutchOma Wed 31-Aug-11 07:23:18

I can knit 3 squares out of any ball of wool that anybody would care to send me.

purplepidjin Wed 31-Aug-11 07:32:18

We need a volunteer to match up donors with crafters, please. I'm happy to do the construction again (unless someone else wants a turn??), but don't have the skills to take on spreadsheets etc sad

I don't know if I can do spreadsheets, but I think I could probably do it on a piece of pare away from the computer, if that is any help?

Card files worked for centuries before some bastard one invented computers, Oma - thank you [star]

Happy to join in again - happy to buy wool for someone. Is there enough of the right sort of wool left in the country, or should we switch to a different one? perhaps the baby one this time, or not?

SoupDragon Wed 31-Aug-11 07:50:49

I thought this when reading the thread.

I'm up for helping again.

CoffeeIsMyFriend Wed 31-Aug-11 07:51:54

happy to send some money to someone. Not so good at the knitting part and crochet is beyond my skills.

rubycon Wed 31-Aug-11 07:54:03

I'll knit again.

purplepidjin Wed 31-Aug-11 07:57:40

If we use the same wool, I can hold back any spare plain ones from Magic's three.

I can't believe there are so many volunteers so fast [star]

I'm in.

Oma, I'm PMing you.

Thumbwitch Wed 31-Aug-11 08:01:00

That's true, pidjin , hadn't thought of that - was just thinking about Lydia running out of stock and the other shops slowing down in their deliveries, so was a bit concerned about supply!
(have PMd you as well, btw, just in case you haven't noticed smile)

LawrieMarlow Wed 31-Aug-11 08:02:30

I am happy to do one or more squares - have enough wool left over from magic8's one as well so am happy for any squares I send to be split between blankets as appropriate.

trumpton Wed 31-Aug-11 08:02:53

I will do 3 squares , < wish I didn't need to.> But proud and honoured to be a part of MN at it's best. So sorry for Whatevertheweather and the loss of her daughter.

KnottyLocks Wed 31-Aug-11 08:04:04

Pidj, has anyone contacted WhatEverTheWeather yet?

posterofawolef Wed 31-Aug-11 08:14:27

I'm up for it again. So sad sad

faverolles Wed 31-Aug-11 08:18:02

I can send wool. If someone could let me know colours and type.
Or I can send money if that makes it easier.

ComeWhineWithMe Wed 31-Aug-11 08:18:05

I will donate wool/funds.

purplepidjin Wed 31-Aug-11 08:21:52

Thumby you have pm

ComeWhine contacted wtw last night to get the go ahead before I started the thread

If everyone keeps their spare wool we can swap it round a bit to vary colours? And maybe lydia has a wholesaler she could contact - would someone be able to pm her for me? I'm stuck at work til 8 and I'll be away camping from thursday evening

I'll get onto that now, Pidj.

ripstheirthroatoutliveupstairs Wed 31-Aug-11 08:23:45

I will PM Lydia and get her to contact you if that's OK.

SoupDragon Wed 31-Aug-11 08:24:36

Do you think it woud be possible to get a baby sized blanket out to her before Erin's funeral? I am happy to make a replacement bear square for Magic8's blanket.

I have just ordered some wool from Cucumberpatch explaining the situation and asking for a prompt dispatch.

Tonksforthememories Wed 31-Aug-11 08:28:14

I'll donate wool if someone can match me with a crafter.
