Calling all granny squares

Do you have any unwanted granny squares lying about? You know, those that will never quite make it into the well-intentioned blanket?

Well Lida from Sweden of BestOfCrochet needs you! Or rather your granny squares. She would be even more delighted if you could run a few up to the prescribed size and ship them across to Sweden before the end of November.

She has a project in mind to crochet a blanket as a group effort, where each crochets a square or a couple that will be combined by Lida to make a cozy blanket as a Christmas present to be given to a good charitable destination. She was thinking either an orphanage or Syrian refugees.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.
