Making progress

13 02 2010

Another project I’ve been working on is a knitted blanket for Wrap with Love. It’s slow progress… every now and then I’ll finish another square. But now I feel like it’s getting there, and hopefully by the end of winter I’ll have this ready to send off.

The finished blanket will be 4 squares wide by 7 squares long, so 6 more to go!





Wrap with love

Sometimes, I’m in the mood for craft, but I don’t have the patience for anything fiddly.

When that’s the case, I usually pull out some of the numerous balls of 8ply acrylic I have stashed and knit some squares. I have been knitting these squares for a couple of years now and use them to create blankets for a charity called Wrap with love.  They ask people to knit or crochet squares and put them together to make blankets that are sent to those less fortunate who need them.

Here’s the current group of squares I have, enough for about half a blanket.

P7210178If you’re interested in helping, the squares should be 25cm by 25cm (mine are close, at least!). The blankets are formed using 4 squares by 7 squares.  All the details are on the Wrap with love link.
