Thanks for your lovely message, MrsK. So very touching.

Sending much love to you, MrK, DD and thinking of your beautiful daughter. X

Oh bless your heart, big hugs for you MrsK Xx

Thank you for coming on here, your words mean so much, thank you. Lovely to meet you again and I'm so very glad you have both the woolly hugs.

Much love and hope to see you again before too long

Hello to all of you wonderful knitters, crocheters and wool-donors. I met with the wonderful Pistey yesterday and collected our large blanket - it is absolutely glorious. Thank you, thank you, thank you to each and every one of you.

The love, talent, time and effort that goes into each square is so impressive. And even those 'plain squares' are anything but when you look closely at them. MrK and I spent a long time looking at our blanket last night and still new things kept jumping out at us - the many beautiful hearts, the customised teddy buttons, the stunning crocheted flowers, initial letters, the two footprints and on, and on; all radiating out from one of Soupy's cheeky-grinned bears. Individually they are mini works of art, put them together and they are very special indeed.

And while we've been given two blankets (DD snuggles under her Woolly Hug every night on the sofa after dinner) they are so much more than blankets. They represent and mean so much. They are love and thoughtfulness, kindness and compassion made physical.

The death of a child is like no other kind of grief. It is all-encompassing and truly frightening as you have no idea if you will drown under it or come through it. Knowing that so many people cared and were thinking of us - many of them strangers - and that so many squares were coming together meant and means so much. We will cherish and look after both of our blankets, they will forever be part of our family life and will always remind me of the friendship and bonds that are formed whenever women pull together to support each other.

As to Pistey and Knotty, who put so much time and effort into our Woolly Hugs and all of the other blankets and ongoing WH projects, thank you for your kindness, amazing organisational skills and incredible generosity of spirit. You are also extremely good fun to have lunch with wink

I really cannot say thank you enough to everyone who has been involved. I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful New Year. Much love to you all xxx

Squares finally dispatched. Sorry for delay.

<raises hand sheepishly>

I'm responsible for the lilac and blue/grey crocheted squares. Each square has the same number of stitches in, and was worked with the same hook so I don't know how they ended up such...umm...interesting sizes.

I was too ashamed to put anything in the package that might identify me.blush

Wow, love the woolly hugs site! What a great idea. Must have been hard to keep that quiet Knotty and Pistey?! wink You secret squirrels!
Have you done it all yourselves? I don't know how you find the time but I think it's a great idea. I did have a little sniffle though, when I was reminded about how many woolly hugs have been made. What a team!
