The Christmas Charity Blanket Project – So Far

It has been so busy at work lately I have been doing extra hours so have not had as much time as I would have liked to make squares. I have promised myself that this Sunday will be dedicated to squares. These are the squares so far. I have stuck mostly to stripy granny squares.

But I was thought I would do some in single colours too just to mix things up a bit. I think they look so fresh and bright.

Then I had some bits and pieces that I managed to extend to the specified 13cm size.

Also, I had a call from my lovely Mama H who has also pledged some squares for this great project. So we are both busy in our different corners of the UK but it feels as though we are creating our colourful contributions for the Charity Blanket project together. Thank to Best of Crochet for bringing so many people together to join into this seasonal project.

How is everyone else getting on in between all these gorgeous Christmas creating I keep reading about on your blogs?

    I love the bright colours of the middle set but they all look fab 🙂

    I’m still knitting away at Eldest Mudlets Christmas present. It’s actually a quick pattern to knit but, like you, it’s finding time at the moment that’s the problem

    Great looking squares… I’m surprised how effective the plain ones are – sometimes less is more!

    Thanks for the reminder. I must get all the unloved spare ones out and post them off. Hope they are about the right size.

      That would be so great, thank you. The size requested was 13 cm square but bestow crochet said she would be happy to work in all sizes.
