Chip's blanket will be handed over to her this week. Photos of the finished blanket can be seen here on Flickr

We have also just started a Facebook page for the WoollyHugs here

Many thanks to all involved with this blanket. We hope that it may bring comfort to Chipmonkey and her family.

It's simply gorgeous.

Everyone has done amazingly well, the squares are absolutely beautiful, people are so clever! Thank you to all the lovely donors too. And a very big thank you to our Knotty for the tremendous amount of dedication and hard work she has put in to this, working out how the eclectic mix of squares and gorgeous colours fit best together and then in hooking it into this final glorious blanket

We are sending a very big woolly hug to Chipmonkey with a lot of love X

That is just completely beautiful, as all the blankets are. Really, it is truly lovely and I am sure Chipmonkey and family will treasure it forever.

There are some absolutely stunning squares on the blanket: very gifted people.

The lovely folks who donated wool have also made this possible and are a vital part of the blankets. So a huge thanks to them , as well as to the crafters who did wonders with their wool.

Thank your for the PM. I made my squares under my old user name.

The blanket is amazing. A huge thank you got those who organised and coordinated it. You have done something incredible.

I can't get over the variety and quality of the squares.

Well done everyone

LadyWellian Mon 02-Apr-12 01:35:33

Well done Knotty and Pistey as ever, and sending Chipmonkey a bit of extra love too.
