Jill came to visit us this week. She used to be a member and it was really nice to see her again because she is a warm, friendly lady. She had brought along her knitting. She is knitting blanket squares for another group she goes to. They are collecting the squares from members to make into blankets. This is a great project for anyone and any age group. You can keep it simple with just garter stitch squares for beginner knitters or those who just want to knit without any bother. You can also get people to try out new stitches , mitred squares or Aran squares so they upskill. The blankets can be gifted or raffled. They never go to waste. It’s a great way to use up oddments too .
Jill was using wool she had spun . It was dyed merino tops plied with silk and the colours were just so soft and lovely as was the wool.
There are some good patterns for blanket squares on Craftsy.
