Little pile of squares


This is it so far. 33 squares. Not a very big blanket yet and certainly not enough for 2, but there are another 6 weeks left I suppose, so I mustn't get down-hearted. Hopefully Kerrie has a few over at the shop along with a bit of money. (Have you Kerrie? Do tell.)
As it stands at the moment, I've had money from just 2 people, so Sara or Pam, the odds are looking good for you to win a very small blanket!
Julie Cotton Rabbit is also doing a bit of fund-raising, so pop along to her site and bid for a wonderful big rabbit called Rose. Julie is doing much better than I am and already has bids of nearly £100.
Must go, late for work. Wish me luck for this afternoon - I'm getting fed up of Shitty days...

Hi Michaela,

Sorry you are having a s****y time! I would send you a square for the blanket but I'm not a great knitter and I am chained to my evil sewing machine at the moment! Hope things improve. Lucy x

Well, we have about another 20 squares here and another £1. I still have to give you my money and squares but I have only knit 1. Must. Knit. Faster.

Ooh and I only made three because I thought you'd have loads! Kerrie tells me I missed you by minutes at Ally Pally - what a shame. I'll make some more squares at the weekend and send them over with some dosh :0)

I hope you had a better day at work, my package has some money in it too. I will try and knit you some more in the next week or so.

I've four finished so far (a bit of a slow knitter), and I hope to be able to knit a few more, and will send some money for the raffle as well.

I hope work goes well today - I can relate to the feeling and know it's not a good place to be.

Hi Michaela,
Longtime lurker that I am, sorry for that, but I have my scraps assembled and will churn out some squares this weekend.

I will send 2 squares and some money tomorrow, via Kerrie. I hope the postal system backlog provides you with many more very soon!

Sweetie don't forget that I have a few American squares for you - at last count it was 6 - and the possibility of $75 if those pesky few pound notes haven't gone out of date.

Fall Studio Tour* this weekend and I already have plans to pick up a bit of 4-ply in Oliver's honor : )

*meaning an excuse to get to both Dancing Leaf and Kiparoo farms!

Hi,

Hope your day wasn't as crappy as you were thinking it would be, and sorry that the squares are only dribbling in. I'll put aside this pesky monkee knitting and crack on with a couple more :)

I've made six squares for you M, and I need a ticket!

Emma said...

Don't panic yet ! I know quite a few people who are sending squares, some from the States. I'm knitting some more right now.
I think [hope] more people will buy raffle tickets once there's [more of] a blanket to see.
Many thanks for everyone who is knitting, or has knitted, squares, or bought raffle tickets. We really appreciate it.

Oh! I thought the deadline was the end of October. Is it the end of November? If so I can get you a couple of squares.

Kathleen said...

I thought I commented earlier that I would try to knit some squares but never go a response. Where do they need to be sent?

Michaela, I went over to Emma's blog and Paypal'd 5 pounds into Oliver's Fund. And I'll try to do a couple of squares. . .
