We are making a great start on the 3 hospice blankets, thank you!
I've been trying to figure out how many squares we'll need for each of the 3 blankets to get a sense of the progress we've made so far. It looks like a single blanket size in the UK is approximately 39" x 76".
For the Coastal Aran Blanket, we'd need 45 of the 9" squares to make a blanket this size. As of 1 Feb, we've created 12 beautiful squares, leaving us 33 more to go. I've heard from a number of you that additional squares are on the way. Thank you :)
For the Scrappy Sock Blanket we'll need 91 of the 6" squares. As of 1 Feb we've created 31 fabulous squares leaving us 60 more to go.
Most recently I received these lovely 5 squares from Judy at Fiber Experiences. Thanks soo much Judy, I love these colours and that you were able to contribute so many.
The sock squares are my favourite to work on - I find them quite addicting and love being able to use up leftover odds and ends of sock yarn. I've also been able to complete a few more since the last post:
And last but not least is the wonky log cabin quilt. We'll need 45 of the 9" squares. I've received 6 so far, leaving 39 to create. Most recently I received these 3 beauties from Sharon, all the way from Australia! How cool is that! (And touched my heart).
As a reminder, here are the guidelines for the 3 blankets we are working on.
Thanks for your continued support of this project.
