I started this many months ago, and finally finished the very last square during the week!
So finally it's finished and will be going off to K4BN next Friday or Saturday.
I sewed a little tag on the back of this one. I thought it would be nice to add it, so the person who ends up with it, knows someone is thinking of them.
I used the unholey granny square
Each square was 13 rounds (measuring 30cm) plus a final round of dc (aus) in black, using a 4.50mm hook and 8ply/DK yarn. These are a lot of fun to make, I made another the same, 2 years ago.
I have a few more projects to get finished before the end of the week,
I've got two bunny rugs of double flannelette I've sewn together on Friday. I'll crochet a border around each one, with some 4ply Bendigo cotton.
I have a stack of donated crochet and knitted squares I'm currently sewing together to make another blanket, and some lined curtain fabric to make toiletry bags for the group as well. I should get a few from 3 metres, plus I found a roll of nylon cord from Bunnings, 20 metres for $5, for the drawstrings, cheaper than buying it at the Haby Dept.
Did you know K4BN also hand out toiletry bags to the homeless as well as knitted and crochet items?
They are always in need of packaged toothbrushes and soap (they need to be packaged due to health regs) Toothpaste, small containers of shampoo, sample packs, face washers are all appreciated.
Finally after all the crocheting I've been doing lately, I needed to knit something, I've missed it.
So ever since I found this lovely old vintage book of hats, I've wanted to knit the
I'm just about to start the decreases now, so it's been a quick little knit.
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. It's a lovely sunny weekend in Brisbane, it's been about 23c so not too cold.
