Quickie

I am going to make patchwork knitted/crocheted rugs for some people having been devastated by the recent bushfires.
If anyone wanted to make a square please feel free and send to me.I will join them together, and being an anarchist they can be any size and I will accomodate them.
This is one of a couple I made at another time.

We had a church which was very cold once, so I suggested we make rugs like this and they were great when different people made the squares, more interesting than mine alone.

We made one in Reds which I was especially great, but they all looked so cheerful on the end of the pews in winter........of course with my love of colour, you can understand what happiness it gave me.

Many squares to make one big whole. Absolutely beautiful.

What a lovely idea - and I may have some squares already, though they would be plain - and I work on the diagonal, from corner to corner. Would that matter? I could certainly make a multi-coloured one.I will email you when ready and you can give me a postal address. Ann, from UK.

I'll search my various bags of wool - what about yarn guage? DK (double knitting)? Email me if you like - you can find my email in my profile on my blog. Ann, from UK. You must be into Autumn now, possibly with chilly evenings.
