Oliver's Blanket


Well here are the squares that I've received so far. Don't panic if yours are not amongst this mini-blanket, Kerrie has lots ready and waiting to bring over next weekend. We're planning on sewing them all together then, so if you have any to send, please try and get them sent asap. We will of course be still collecting them until the end of November (and beyond if you want) ready to sew up into blanket number 2, so no need to panic!
These squares have just been laid out on my dining room floor, so any particular design (I really hope you were joking there Emma!) is not yet set in stone. I like the randomness of patchwork blankets though, not really a fan of all things ordered and tidy. I get enough of that at home, please don't make me conform to strict and rigid regimes here!
If you want to buy a raffle ticket or 5 (!) just go to Emma's blog and donate using Paypal on the Oliver's Fund button. Emma will tell me how many you've bought. You can still send me cash or a cheque, but I know that doesn't help anybody not living in the UK.
I'm hoping to make this blanket about 4 times bigger than it is in the picture - which means I need another 126 squares. Anybody? Please? (Just a thought, but we don't seem to have any blue squares yet.)

I think we have around 50 squares in the shop so far, can't wait to sit down and sew them all together with you.

I've only made one. I'm up to my ears but will try to make a couple more. Will send this one off Monday, anyhow, so you at least get that.

It's dark green.

Oops sorry ! No blues here. The ones I've done (but haven't posted yet) are red and pink :0)

I meant ''design'' just in the sense of colour balance, which you're more than capable of.
I've found a seam rich in odd bits of sock yarn in the wool room ! A few darker colours, with some blues and purples.
It's fun thinking of the socks I've made and who I knitted them for...

I'd tried commenting while in North Carolina and was not successful (drat that dial-up connection!)

Sending you several in tomorrow's post - along with the long promised ticket money : }

ps: time change yesterday - TLG is totally out of sorts!

I am sorry I don't have time to knit extra squares, so I did purchase a few tickets - at least I think I did... I put in 5. Sorry to do it in the comments, I couldn't find your email address. It could be right in front of my face, and I didn't see it.

I hope I can knit up a few squares for you. Do you want the ends woven in, or left free for seaming?

Nessa said...

I am just finding out about this today, I am hoping to get some squares to you soon!!

I can't find your email addy either but I think I bought 10 tickets if they're 1 GBP each. I'm sending squares to Kay in NY for the US blanket. And...your cakes are just gorgeous! What a skill. I'm insanely jealous.
