Woolly Hugs. A Blanket for the very lovely Inaminutenow. Crafters and donors, we need your help.
173

KnottyAndPistey · 07/03/2014 14:44

I'm afraid we bring very sad news. Inaminutenow’s beloved husband died in February, he had been suffering from cancer. Such devastating news, we are so sorry that life has been so cruel. Our love and thoughts are with her and their family. There is no separate thread, Inaminutenow has been posting in the very supportive thread for Mumsnetters whose husbands have cancer. Love and strength to them all X

We have offered to make Inaminutenow a blanket to show our love and support and to offer what comfort we can, and we are delighted to say she has accepted.

So we are asking for help once again Sad Thanks

We will need crocheters, knitters and donors (of funds or wool) I will co ordinate and Knotty (KnottyLocks) will help you with any crafting queries you may have. Sincere heartfelt thanks. Thanks

If you would like to be involved in any way, please post on this thread and PM me (RatherBeOnThePiste) with your offers: crafting, donating, need wool, etc, I can help you with all of it.

Thank you so much Thanks


The Yarn we are Using….

  • Artesano Superwash Merino DK
  • Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK (discontinued but some still around)
  • Debbie Bliss Rialto DK
  • Drops Merino Extra Fine DK
  • James C. Brett Pure Merino DK (also discontinued, some still to be had)
  • Jenny Watson Pure Merino DK
  • Sublime Extra Fine Merino Wool DK
    Just from the brands listed please because we know they combine for wash and wear.


    The Colours
    Greens, blues and purples
    Silver
    Cream but please choose one of the following - Debbie Bliss Rialto DK 02 ecru, James C. Brett Pure Merino DK no 7 or Jenny Watson Pure Merino DK WM4 cream


    Ideas and suggestions for squares.
    Inaminutenow’s DH was a proud Welshman, so ideas there.
    He loved his job, dealing with access to the countryside, footpaths, bridle ways etc. He was involved in creating a Coastal Path, so sea and countryside themes, birds, flowers, stars etc.
    We have the family’s initials if this is something anyone would like to do, please PM.

    Please don't feel daunted by these suggestions, we love plain squares and simple textures too. They look as stunning as the more complex squares and play a vital role in the overall effect.

    Squares to be 6 inches, using 4mm hook or needles. All crafting abilities genuinely welcome, squares made by beginner or expert are equally welcomed. It really is the love and thought that counts.

    Our Crafting Guide is a good place for support, and previous blankets can be seen on our website too.


    When finished please sew in those ends but don’t block your work. Then PM me (RatherBeOnThePiste) for details for posting.


    As always heartfelt thanks for your support


    Thinking of Inaminutenow, her beloved DH, their family and friends.

    Pistey and Knotty Thanks
