Support thread 2 - new blankets

(1000 Posts)

This is a continuation of our thread supporting MNers creating blanket squares for Woolly Hugs. All are welcome and I'm hoping to post a link soon to a collection of our fave patterns, pics and links to keep them all in one place. In the meantime, this new thread will allow phone-based MNers like RedRosie to return from Special Phone Exile where she goes whenever the thread has too many messages on.

This is a thread of peace where knitters and crocheters, donors and crafters are all equally welcome.

Damn you autocorrect, should have been Tribs with no apostrophe!

OpheliaBumps Sat 16-Jun-12 07:52:23

Trib's can I go on the map too please? I'm in Chester, and very lovely it is too, though very short on wool shops sad

Lots more woolly arrivals - fabulous!!

Clear as mud grin Daisy
I am not in the mafia even if I was could I/ would I tell you?! but I wish I had the volume in my hair like Mrs Soprano grin

*are or not

where I'm fae (the Royal Burgh of Fife) glaikit and eejit have slightly different meanings. Eejit is just stupid or having done something daft, but glaikit is someone who looks as daft as their actions or just looks daft whether they ate or not.

Glaikit Fri 15-Jun-12 22:09:15

Ooh sicily! Are you in the mafia?? adds formerly to list of miners not to piss off

J as in jeff here!

FormerlyTitledUntidy Fri 15-Jun-12 21:36:08

I am (half) forrin here so properly forrin to those Sasanachs grin
It's the Sicily in me smile though I will stand as a Celt any day.
I googled glaikit and a synonym is eejit, do you use that in Scotland too? Is it ee-jit or ee-git? Subject of debate depending on where in Ireland you're from.

Get us, woolly hugs are soooooooooo international grin

My new wool arrived today so I can start grin. Just need to decide what to do! I think there was a request for snowdrops for this one? Might be an idea - saw some lovely ideas on Ravelry.

Glaikit Fri 15-Jun-12 21:07:09

Are you classed as forrin Formerly? As a Celt we are one and the same against the soffit southerners

Unless you only live in Dublin but are actually from mars. Then you'd be proper forrin!!

Glaikit Fri 15-Jun-12 21:02:32

I prefer daft actually! wink

<waves> Hello!


Is the thread limit 1,000? Must be nearly there ...

Trib solved my tech problem I wish she could solve all my problems

So I am indeed still here ...

tribpot Fri 15-Jun-12 20:47:53

Dumbass (that's what the word means, I'm not calling you dumbass, Formerly).

FormerlyTitledUntidy Fri 15-Jun-12 20:45:32

Wool is here, so starting tonight smile

<wails> I don't know what Glaikit means sad Is it cuz I is forrin?

tribpot Fri 15-Jun-12 20:43:56

No, Barbara, tis very easy to get carried away online because of the postage charges. And strikeout is an arse to do at the best of times, it needs a space either side of the hyphens.

I have been contemplating a new thread, although Rosie has been doing so well with this one!

BarbaraWoodlouse Fri 15-Jun-12 20:38:11

Bollocks, jetlag appears to have killed my ability to strikeout grin

BarbaraWoodlouse Fri 15-Jun-12 20:37:05

Back in the UK with major jetlag but cheered to find my wool waiting for me. Tonight is <gin> then <sleep>, tomorrow is <tree pattern --of putative doom-->

Incidently, does anyone else find buying online tends to work out more expensive due to the temptation to bung a couple of extra balls in "to justify the postage"? Just me then... grin

Glad to see you're all well -- and mad as ever--. Trib, you planning on starting a new thread soon? This one's nearly done already! And Rosie stayed through for the duration. Yay! smile

tribpot Fri 15-Jun-12 16:29:43

Jules - I will put you on in the 'lower quadrant' with many of the other blanketeers smile

prettybird Fri 15-Jun-12 14:39:06

As Glaikit says, confused is as good a definition as any! grin

Jules146 Fri 15-Jun-12 14:19:19

Trib can I be on your map too?!! Although I am a Southern softie I am afraid!! From West Sussex! (And no I don't know what Glaikit means <rushes to look it up...>)
Just finished my first ever knitted letter! Hoping the sizing is ok!! Got to attempt the next one now confused

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 15-Jun-12 13:46:53

Lunchtime! Such good news Ruby, fire up your needles! thanks

and I know what Glaikit means!

rubycon Fri 15-Jun-12 10:41:13

am I on the right thread for saying that my wool has arrived?

Just got to find the box with my needles in now .... smile

PurplePidjin Fri 15-Jun-12 10:31:42

Erm... hmm

Glaikit Fri 15-Jun-12 10:20:30

Pidj I knew I always liked you!

Prettybird I usually point them towards the confused smiley which I think explains it rather well

PurplePidjin Fri 15-Jun-12 09:58:23

I googled once (mainly for the Glaikit bit, I know what a physog is wink) and can honestly state that it had no effect whatsoever on the amount of respect i had for our Glaikit hmm
