I'd just blown in off the moors walking my dog when the postie pounded on the back door. His greeting and my thanks were whipped out our mouths by the wind. I shut the door and found I was clutching a rather fat parcel, almost bursting out if it's seams.
It didn't take much persuasion for this wonderful blankie to spring out, complete with gorgeous ribbon and note from Linda from Chalky's World
THANK YOU LINDA!
And as if that wasn't enough, Linda also tucked in a 'small' ball of yarn!
'Small' *snorts* I jest, she tucked in a 400gm ball of DK
just think how many squares that would make!!
THANK YOU LINDA!
I have also been given bags of cones of knitting machine wool,
which I am re-winding into manageable sizes,
below is a small selection of (approx) 40 balls.
There are still 8 - 9 cones still to go!
THANK YOU SHARON
AND YOUR LONG-SUFFERING OTHER HALF!!
Must stop now, got to go to work, but when I return, I shall continue sorting out wool to share out with all the lovely ladies here in the village who are happily making squares and blankets.
What a good way to start the week! Hope your Monday started off as brilliantly as mine :)
No, not of the disastrous kind but one of wonderful new contributors - Welcome Linda, Antonia and Heather who have all contacted me with generous offers of squares - both knitted and crocheted, welcome ladies, your help is most needed :)
A late posting of a vibrant foursome, done by a fellow blogger under the influence of a dreadful lurgy, I think it's brilliant when some one is too ill to get out and about, she still reaches for her crochet hook! She called her squares 'garish' but in the blanket look absolutely gorgeous,
Right must dash, off to collect another parcel of squares, and I have some wonderful pictures of some gorgeous finished blankets to show you. Have a lovely day and keep on hooking and knitting ladies, it's a wonderful addiction to have :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I will photograph them tomorrow and post their pictures up, they are so pretty!
Ooh this is so exciting - I get so chuffed to bits when I see all these squares coming in and when the blankets are ready to post, I am a little bit sad to see them go as I wrap them up safely in their parcel. But know, that they will make some one smile :)
I was away when the postie left me a 'your-parcel-that-was-too-fat-to-get-thru-your-letter-box-and-is-now-back-at-the-sorting-office' card so this morning I trundled off to collect said fat parcel. And looky looky what was safely tucked up inside that parcel ................
