A little thread so I can acknowledge people who have sent squares for the Blankets (Magic8ball, Whatevertheweather and Cheeseandgherkins) and also so that folk know their kindness has arrived safely!

Initals MB who did tell me her squares were on their way but I've forgotten the username blush possibly 100years who I know is working to a tight deadline [star]

I have 24 squares already shock which is a 3'x2' blanket all on it's own!

Trumpton, hoping those antibiotics work very quickly.

WTW's squares have started to arrive.

Thanks to Meow [star]

KNotty - can you let me know who sent me the beige wool for WTW and Cheeseand gherkins? I think RL inititials maybe NL??? WOuld just like to say thanks, is all.

Have two already done from leftovers i had bought myself, will try and get two more done over the w/e and get them out to you. Can i do a stripey one??
My DD (9) is learning to knit and i have let her do a couple of stitches on each one, so she feels she has helped, bless her.

May get some more wool in and just keep on making them, as i forgot how much i enjoyed knitting blush.

Whoremoanee, this [star] is for your DD. How very lovely of her.

Stripes, spots, whatever you like as long as it's 6" square grin.
I'll PM you your donor's name.

[star] for minimoan (I can't bring myself to call her your username)

Why not get some and make a blanket together for her bed?

Oh good glad mine arrived, was very quick only sent yesterday smile [stars to postie] [stars for knotty and pidj]

SongBirdsKeepSinging Sat 10-Sep-11 12:07:29

Pidj can squiffy square be saved or is there no hope for him?

KnottyLocks Sat 10-Sep-11 12:16:32

Piste, thanks also for the note and the energy booster. I hid the booster from the boys and snaffled it as soon as they went out grin

purplepidjin Sat 10-Sep-11 12:18:51

Song, squiffy square is beautiful and will most definitely be saved with a contrasting crochet border. DP agrees (I don't normally discuss wooly things with him, but this one was important!)

Disclaimer: I only keep the woolly things away from DP so that he will keep football things away from me wink

LadyWellian Sat 10-Sep-11 13:07:14

Glad mine have arrived, Pidj. I almost forgot and had to interrogate the postman as to whether he had emptied the box yet.

So our collecting postman is a good egg but I am not so sure about the delivering one, as ComeWhineWithMe posted me two balls last weekend for the WTW and C&G blankets, and they have not arrived. sad

SongBirdsKeepSinging Sat 10-Sep-11 15:28:30

Oh I'm glad squiffy can be saved pidj smile thanks again, and thanks to mr pidj for his input into saving squiffy.

Today's postie has brought me wonderful squares from:

Rubycon [star]

Alibubbles [star]

purplepidjin Mon 12-Sep-11 21:39:37

Squiffy has acquired a purple border, and will probably get another layer of pink added - I have some the same shade from someone else - if I have enough of it. Or possibly blue of which I have several miles...

Today I received a slightly damp offering from PosterofaWolef [star] and an entire family of cuddly bears for the raffle from PurpleKnittingMum [star] along with squares for the blanket grin

I will post pics tomorrow if i can keep my shaking hands still before my interview

KnottyLocks Mon 12-Sep-11 22:48:01

Good luck, Pidj.

<twirl's new name>

Thank you! bears will be making their way to you on Friday along with the raffle blanket if that's ok? Do you think I'll get funny looks sewing in the ends on the train?

KnottyLocks Mon 12-Sep-11 22:59:41

Sod 'em grin

Let me know what time you are getting in and I'll come to get you.

purplepidjinawoollytangle Mon 12-Sep-11 23:05:27

The one you said - 9:41 [star] 'tis to the big city Harbour station, yes?

KnottyLocks Mon 12-Sep-11 23:10:36

Bloody hell, I've got to do transport arrangements too? grin

KnottyLocks Mon 12-Sep-11 23:11:17

Mind you, you will be carrying a blanket. I'll consider it a blanket relay. I'll PM you.

SongBirdsKeepSinging Tue 13-Sep-11 08:43:06

Yey for squiffy!

Good luck with your interview!

purplepidjinawoollytangle Tue 13-Sep-11 08:59:20

A blanket, a couple of hundred squares and half a dozen teddies...

lydiathetattooedlady Tue 13-Sep-11 11:09:50

purplepidjinawoollytangle Tue 13-Sep-11 11:39:59
