Crochet a Rainbow




If you don't already know, Sarah London has started a charity for the victims of the recent horriffic floods in Australia. She has asked for granny squares, 5 rounds each, nothing fancy, in a variety of bright colours with which she will turn them into blankets for the victims. There have been many people signing up from all over the world and if you can crochet a square or two then why not pop over and sign up too.

Here are some simple squares I have made which will be sent soon. My sister has said she will do a few and I will wait on her squares then send them altogether.

Today I got the cutest gift through the post. My lovely friend Amanda from Manda's Challenges had a giveaway and I was one of the lucky winners. She sent this cute pencil case - just right for holding my hooks in and three lovely balls of yarn. Woot!! Oh there is also some special wash stuff as well just for wools. Fab prize Amanda. Thank you so much.

That's about all from me today! Nearly finished the first block on A Most Noble Pursuit. Long time coming. Keep warm fellow Brits and neighbours around the world. x

Great squares Hazel, and thanks for the link. Id heard a bit about this project somewhere but wasn't really sure how to get involved. It's a wonderful idea, and nice to think of the people around the world getting hooky for a very good cause.

Those are beautiful! I can't crochet, but if I could I would definitely join in. We are "tracking" Cyclone Yas. Some of our friends have been affected by the floods and are now right in the middle of the cyclone.

I've made a bunch of squares. I'm not looking forward to weaving in all my strands, but I am so looking forward to taking pictures and mailing the end results off to her.

That is such a wonderful gesture Hazel. I am sure that your squares will be appreciated. I can't crochet :( otherwise I would contribute also.
