Hi Valerie. Thanks for your message. It's good to be part of this group. I've got my first batch of 35 squares ready to dispatch. Can I ask a dumb question? The instructions talk about packing in bags; but I have a cardboard box. Is there any reason why I shouldn't use that instead? Kind regards, Kate
Thankyou for the welcome. I am currently wrestling with a square in Herringbone stitch which I am learning from a youtube video. It has to be just about the slowest stitch to knit up!!s
Since lockdown, I have been trying to learn a few new stitches as previously only a garter stitch and stockingette knitter. Hoping to send out a few squares soon when we are able and have tried my hand at the armwarmers too.
Feels good to be apart of something so worthwhile.
I've heard of "corner-to-corner" before, but never learned it. Tomorrow at our local crochet guild meeting, they will teach the "corner-to-corner", so I am looking forward to learning it! I'm going to try this stitch for my squares!
Hi Valerie, thank you for approving my request! It is really amazing to see many photos in here, those squares and items traveled from all over the world. I am looking forward to doing the same, as my small humble efforts... Looking forward to being a part of this good cause :)
Hi Valerie, Thank you for your message. It is correct that only the names from A to F appear. Ronda was away and she didn't have the time to complete the list. The remainder of the alphabet will be published in February. Hope this info is of help. xoxo
Thanks Valerie for generous offer. My daughter is training hard for the marathon in Paris and I'm already making plans to go to see her. And Saint Tropez next for Jennifer, that is exciting. Love that place. We have friend in Lavandu. And in the summer we go for ice cream to SaintTrop. Fingers crossed for our girls.
I missed her and the marathon this year. We were away, just got back last night. I hope she finished and had a great time in NY . My daughter is in training to run the Paris Marathon in April!! Cheers. DD
