We have heard the desperately sad news that 3girlies daughter Flora has lost her battle against a brain tumour, she was 6 years old. 3girlies' thread is here

We send 3girlies our love and are so sorry for her loss. She and her family are in our hearts and thoughts X

We have offered to make the family a blanket, and hope it may give whatever comfort it can to them. We are so pleased that they have accepted.

So we are calling out for knitters, crocheters and donors. Can you help us?

If you would like to be involved in any way, please post on this thread, and also PM me so we know. I will coordinate and match crafters and donors, and deal with any admin. We now have Paypal to make donating easier for all. So please PM if you would like to join us, or if I can help match you. Knotty will try to answer any queries you may have. Sincere heartfelt thanks. thanks

Once again the wool we are using is:

* Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK (NOT the baby cash)
* Rowan Cashsoft DK
* Sublime Extra Fine Merino Wool DK
* Artesano Superwash Merino DK

The Colours

If choosing cream we ask that you go for the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK 013

Flowers please, also initials F, P and L.

Do use the crafting guide on the website to help you with lots of practical info, and if interested there are a lot of linked suggestions for squares.

Previous blankets can be seen on the Woolly Hugs website and we are on Facebook and Twitter at MNWoollyHugs which are good ways to keep in touch.

But once again, we thank you so much for your support X thanks

We are really glad that the very lovely 3girlies and her family have their Woolly Hug. Bless them, 3g has written a message to all, and there is a link below to the website to see pictures of the finished Hug. It was sent with much love from us all, we are thinking of Flora. X

"I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who contributed to our lovely blanket. I wanted to wait until Flora's sisters came home from school so we could open it together, we are just overwhelmed! It is so beautiful, we have so enjoyed picking out the initials and Flora's name, also managed to identify some of the flowers, don't think we have taken in every detail yet, I sure we will notice other wonders later. We are all thrilled with it including Flora's Dad, we can't believe how many total strangers spent so much time creating such a beautiful memorial.

It does not feel enough just to say thanks, we are so moved by this.


3g and family. X"
