Thought this would be easy. No!

This was the Northampton group’s collection!

TheWoollybacksWife Mon 14-Jan-19 20:38:16

I'm in. Posting what I have tomorrow and sending a PM now.

Bearfrills Mon 14-Jan-19 20:40:42

I'm in too.

Going to try finish off current project tonight then check my stash for colours tomorrow while Bear Cub is having her nap.

KnottyAndPistey Mon 14-Jan-19 20:41:16

Yay friends!

Okki Mon 14-Jan-19 20:45:40

Yay. Hello. We've got 2 on the go. I'm making one with my Mum (she's about half way through, so think my contribution will be minimal smile) and then one on my own.

Spindelina Mon 14-Jan-19 20:48:08

I'm on repeat five (of six), then border and peskies and it'll be on its way.

MrsJonesAndMe Mon 14-Jan-19 21:08:33

Aiming to finish my snug still but will then be happy to get stuck in with squares.

WitchDancer Mon 14-Jan-19 21:15:22

I'm lurking but moving, so may not be able to help much

KnottyAndPistey Mon 14-Jan-19 21:46:33


So two new areas Glossop (shared with Gloucester) and Shropshire. Anyone near them?!

Redbrook Mon 14-Jan-19 21:52:03

I’m about a week away from finishing. Or perhaps 2 weeks is more realistic.

I’m about 20 miles from Glossoo if that’s any help ?

KnottyAndPistey Mon 14-Jan-19 22:06:12

Last posting for whole blankets is Saturday 27th April, no later please, but asap will make it easier for us! These are going to Teddington.

MadisonAvenue Mon 14-Jan-19 22:06:31

I'm quite near to Shropshire, in that I can see Long Mynd in the distance when I walk the dog grin

There's a blanket on it's way to you and I'm now working on squares.

DropZoneOne Mon 14-Jan-19 23:58:37

Put me down for a whole blanket.

SpiralArchitect Tue 15-Jan-19 10:20:11

DD and I are working on squares already...

bookbook Tue 15-Jan-19 10:40:41

Hello again everyone!
Lovely to see lots of familiar names
Bear - baby bear not so little anymore !
I'm coming up to half way along enough squares for a blanket . I am going on hols shortly, so will carrying on making squares while I'm there - how much yarn/clothes ratio do you think ? ( I have to let DH take some clothes ......)

WitchDancer Tue 15-Jan-19 10:51:35

It's got to be 80/20 surely Book?

Yiayoula Tue 15-Jan-19 12:07:57

Yes, I'm in : some peskies to sew in on my Candy squares ( Memo to self - do it as you go, you know it makes sense....hmm ) , then full steam ahead for the 2019 Chernobyls.

Bearfrills Tue 15-Jan-19 12:12:45

baby bear not so little anymore!

Two in a few weeks time shock

MadisonAvenue Tue 15-Jan-19 12:15:46

Pardon, Bear??! Two??? shock
Are you sure? grin

Bearfrills Tue 15-Jan-19 12:21:31

I'm convinced someone has swapped her for a badly behaved imposter, my child would never mash soggy Wotsits into the carpet or put a Nerf gun in the washing machine. Fairly sure mine isn't nearly 2yo either and is still at that cute but not yet mobile stage.

Sorted my wool and I've got at least five balls in the right colours grin

BlackeyedGruesome Tue 15-Jan-19 14:32:34

watch out, you may have five tangles of spaghetti in the right colours.

(8 years later I threw the tangle away as I was not going to ever detangle)

WhereBeThatBlackbirdTo Tue 15-Jan-19 14:36:58

I'm in too. I need a holiday project. I'm not sure whether I'll send squares or a whole blanket - it depends how the holiday goes wink
