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've already been asked, I'm waiting for Knotty to get back to me as to whether there'll be spare squares.

If not, then the baton will have to pass to someone new. There are 5 blankets and a bunting project underway, we can't ask Knotty to take any more on, it wouldn't be fair to her sad

I am desperately sad to hear that another blanket has been asked for sad

But I am genuinely very happy to take on any admin side to any further blanket making. I have the luxury of time in the day and am actually very organised! So if it comes to it now or in the future, please do take me up on this. I couldn't hook them together, but I could do admin very easily.

purplewerepidj Thu 06-Oct-11 14:12:22

Pistey, if you're happy to do the whole thing in a couple of meetups, I'll do the hooking. I'll need you to gather squares, store them and arrange for extra wool for joining/edging, but I'll take care of the technical bit grin and you can buy me cake

SoupDragon Thu 06-Oct-11 14:17:41

sad I already have wool, assuming it's the same stuff as before.

RatherBeOnThePiste Thu 06-Oct-11 14:38:24

Pidj - I can very happily and very easily do all of that you know...
Including the cake part...

Maybe if we did this, then Knots can concentrate on all the woolly stuff she has ongoing at the moment? She'll be here later and I'm sure she will have a view on all of this!

So someone has already contacted you? I just find it so desperately sad that another blanket has been asked for. It is another precious person taken too soon. sad

Yeah, Peachy tipped me off on fb this morning. She's organising a rose, because Chipmonkey's DD was called Sylvie-Rose.

Right them, Miss Piste, off you go and start a thread! Same wool, same size needle/hook, same size square... Gather a list then PM them your address. Decide on a last posting date and we'll try and have it done by Christmas!

TheRealMBJ Thu 06-Oct-11 16:12:22

I'm due any minute but I'll definitely manage a square or two for chipmonkey.


KnottyLocks Thu 06-Oct-11 16:19:39

Oh bugger. sad

Piste, if you'll take on the admin, I'll email you stuff that show's you how I do it. Plus info for your OP.

Hang about, I'll do that now.

KnottyLocks Thu 06-Oct-11 16:23:55

I know I'll have squares left over from these 2 blankets.
Not sure how many yet.

Perhaps we could do a joint hookathon to get this new blanket done.
The garland won't take me long at all.

I have my joining wool for WTW's blanket so will start hooking that together tonight.

KnottyLocks Thu 06-Oct-11 16:38:01

Piste, I've emailed stuff.

I'm sorting through the PMs now.

NessaRose Thu 06-Oct-11 17:01:51

Piste, I have PM'ed you.

angelpantser Thu 06-Oct-11 17:09:09

Count me in. Please match me up with a donor and I'll get cracking when the wool comes in. I can take a couple of balls of wool - more if you are short of crafters. Are all crochet OK? I only ask because I did some knitted the last couple of times, but the crocheted were quicker to do and I seemed to get more out of the wool.

LadyWellian Thu 06-Oct-11 17:14:01

I'm in as ever. Pistey, hats off to you (as they remain off for Pidj and Knotty). So sad we are starting yet another blanket.

KnottyLocks Thu 06-Oct-11 17:22:51

We are just waiting on the go ahead form the family

Once we have that, we'll start a thread in Chat. Will link it here.

Thanks ladies. You are [stars]

ali11 Thu 06-Oct-11 18:08:29

you an count me in if you want to send me some wool and instructions

knotty already has my address

KnottyLocks Thu 06-Oct-11 18:12:24

Ali, the details will be on the thread once it's up and running. Thanks for supporting us smile

RatherBeOnThePiste Thu 06-Oct-11 18:39:51

Thank you - yes, just waiting to hear back from the family. Im not sure how soon we will hear though. Then if it is going ahead there will be a new thread sad

But thank you x

RatherBeOnThePiste Thu 06-Oct-11 22:28:25

Just heard that Chipmonkey would love to receive a blanket...

The new thread is over here if you can help with this next project sad

purplewerepidj Fri 07-Oct-11 07:11:00

There's also this project if anyone can spare some time

KnottyLocks Fri 07-Oct-11 07:23:49

I saw that Pidj. Someone PMed me about that a little while ago.

Any DK wool can be used for that project. I know we've had offers of wool from people that hasn't be suitable for our projects but would be suitable for that one.

ali11 Sun 09-Oct-11 19:13:30

hi knotty locks
can you give me address to send squares to as they are readu to go I have done six with the wool . If you want more I am happy to do them if you want to send some more wool.

lydiathetattooedlady Fri 14-Oct-11 11:24:37

hi pidj the blanket will be fully put together by sat/sun so i can get cracking wioth the border. Did you want all the borders to be the same or different? If simialr can you send me a pic of the ones you've done before so i can work out a knitted versionx x x x

IvySedaiballs Mon 17-Oct-11 21:37:23
