Last week I found yet another appeal for crafters anywhere in the world to help people who lost what they had in the Australian floods :
Sarah London asks for granny squares of five rounds, and she will add a final round and join all the squares to lovely blankets. Here are the answers to frequently asked questions, but I think the most important thing is to make 5 rounds. The size should be about 11.5 cm or 4.5" across, but when there are hundreds of squares, Sarah will find matches for almost any size. You can use any colours you have, just one or five, and the yarn can be acrylic or wool or mixed fibres.
I used all my colourful yarns for the two little granny blankets I crocheted in 2009, but I still had some of the red yarn I bought to join the squares, and some white yarn, so last night I made these while watching Eurosport with Mr. K. How about you? Any tiny yarn balls asking to be used for a good cause? Just follow the links to sign in so you get the e-mail with instructions where to send your squares. These are a lot quicker to make than the QAYG quilt blocks. This project will last until the end of 2011.
If you follow the first link to Sarah London's blog, you can see that she shows pictures of some cool stuff!
