Hi Diane, I checked your name in the original data and that is what is recorded. [I'm in Canada and the data is sent to me from South Africa]
However having said that, new volunteers have been known to not record content correctly and it was a new volunteer compiling the data. I'm assuming you included a packing slip so the mix-up was somewhere after that ! At least we know your parcel arrived :-)
Sorry for the mix-up. As a volunteer charity Knit-a-Square will always have a few hiccups. Thank you for your understanding. Linda
Hi Diane, it's so lovely for me to hear you enjoy making the Cozy Jumpers - I'm biased of course but I do feel they are like a big warm snuggly hug for the children! I love the bears to, whoever I have shown them to has instinctively hugged them tight and made all the right noises! Can't wait to post the first batch off! Happy knitting xx
Yeah Diane - we have the same yarn!! (your comment on my Hand Warmers pic). Marian (creator of many knitted toys) was using this to make a jacket for her niece last summer When I saw it I just had to have some (you know how it is!!) such happy bright colours. I made 2 Grace Vests with it on the front panel. It's lovely for the handwarmers as it is bright and colourful, and not doing stripes means less ends to darn in. I foresee a few more pairs will be made in it! Kxx
Thank you for your kind comments under my Heart Square photos. You asked how a different yarn can be knitted into the centre of a square. Well, I'm sure it's possible if you are good at intarsia which I'm not so I just join in another strand of yarn and use the two threads for the motif only. You do need an extra short length to complete a heart but that's only a few rows and isn't hard. I've done quite a few now with varying results, my least successful attempt being a try at just bordering the heart which turned out very 'spikey'. Squares are a great way of trying new things and not having to worry too much if they aren't perfect- they'll still be used.
