Thank you ever so much for the information!I don't quite know what 8ply means,as I live in Germany.I used two strands of yarn and cast on 35stitches with 4mm knitting needles.It seems to be working for a regular square.Will also try your diagonal square:-)
You were concerned about the arrival of your parcel and I have just noticed this photo amongst the last batch I received. I haven't been able to match it to a particular blanket at present but at least something has arrived safely. I'll let you know if I find anything else,
Hi Susanne. I see you have already caught up with the news that Ronda wants those of us in the forum to join the squares as they are overwhelmed with squares to join. I have been crocheting them together as it suits me. I put a demo photo on the forum. I lay out 10 and then hold them back to back and crochet a continuous join across the five meeting sides. I have also decided to knit five in one go i.e. knitting a strip. The tails are good for sewing together. I took my off 35 squares worth of tails and knitted 18 fish to add on. Maudie
Hi Susan :) I hope you enjoyed your short stay in Holland, unfortunately the weather was grey and cold. Also I heard that there was a dance festival and a marathon in Amsterdam this weekend, so I hope it was not too overcrowded :))
Next time you visit Holland we hopefully can meet, eat and chat and there is a lot more to see in my tiny country :)
Wish you a good flight to Milan, speak soon, take care.
Hi Susan, I hope you receive this message. It should be great to meet! A lovely surprise that you are in Amsterdam! I live at about 24 miles from Amsterdam. Till when are you here? Where, when can we meet? Anneke :)
This item will allow Knit-a-Square to pay our wonderful co-team workers – the Gogos (grandmothers) – to sew the squares received from across the globe into blankets for the children. $5 US will pay for 4 blankets to be stitched together.
