Blankets coming together!

I thought it was about time i popped in and posted here. Have been so busy organising everything I have had trouble finding time to blog :)

Our group here in the Nth East is busily knitting and crocheting squares to send down for blankets.
As Well as this, we have been very busy sewing together blankets. These particular blankets are made from pieces of the Aussie Longest Scarf attempt. I was involved with this project last year and the rolls of scarf were given out to anyone who wished to use them for charity organisations.
I originally planned to make them into blankets for our elderly citizens, but with the tragedy of the fires felt this need was more immediate. We do still plan to make blankets for our local community later in the year.

Last week at our group gathering a lady popped in to visit, she wasn't staying to knit with us, but she brought with her 6 blankets she had made herself over the years that were looking for new homes. We happily accepted them.

So after this weeks gathering we will be packaging this lot up to send down!

We are hoping to have a few more people join us to knit/crochet and sew this Thursday night, so will take the camera along!
