It has been a week of coincidences. At our first Northern Loops meeting since my return, I was given some squares done by one of our occasional knitter-visitors. I thanked her and wondered what I was going to do with them
As I was wondering I received the following email:
Just wondering if anyone in your knitting groups would be able to help with this http://dementiascotland.org/news/2011/calling-on-knitters-young-and-old/
To cut through their rather vague website, Alzheimer Scotland are trying to break the world record for a knitted blanket.
They need 4" (10cm) squares knitted.
Any wool, any stitch.
The only snag is that they need them before 30th May, but it takes no time at all to knit one 4" square. Every little helps.
If anyone makes several squares, please can they sew them up, in to strips of ten.
If more than one strip is made, please can the strips be sewn together.
Sorry for the short deadline, I've only just found out about this myself.
The squares I had received were 4 inches square, so I have a start on a few squares.
Because the time is short, I am using our online communication to reach as many loopsters as possible. Please do a few squares for Alzheimer's Scotland in the time we have. I'll collect them and send them on.
