Re: EF community knit project #6. Throw to keep Vlh22 warm of an evening.

These gorgeous squares arrived from Swisstree, making her first past the post. Little Rufus says thank you for the fab colouring pencils and other goodies.

It really is most kind of you.

They are beautiful!



Little Rufus is probably crying in a corner because the mother has nicked the colouring pencils to keep tabs on us: who, what, how many, how off the mark... I bet there is another column with torture times, meal times and sleeping times allocated...


God, I'm scaring myself

A couple of those squares are actually displaying their behinds in a shameless display.

I shall make sure they don't moon V when I join them together.

Re: EF community knit/crochet project #5- snuggle blanket.

I've finished my rainbow coloured squares for this blanket and they will be winging their way to Rufus for sewing up shortly.

With that level of order you should consider changing your username to Swissmum.

As Patsy's blanket is complete, I assume you meant to post this on the thread for Vlh22. So I've moved the posts over here.

Re: EF community knit project #6. Throw to keep Vlh22 warm of an evening.

Rufus, when are you hoping to have all the squares by? I've got a grand total of two squares so far (knitting time's been a bit scarce the last 7 weeks for some reason ) and wondering whether I should send those two now or hang onto them a while yet in hopes of finishing one or two more.

No rush:getting my head around my new role. Am getting crochet withdrawal symptoms.

And I can't imagine why you've had no time...

I'm told my contribution to Vlh's blanket arrived at RufusB's house today. I won't post a pic just yet as I'm not sure if this is meant to be a surprise. Now to design something for Belgianmum!

I've seen it and it's beautiful. Not that we expected any less from you, you spoilt us rotten. Your work is just, let me use the expression as it was originally intended, awesome.

Re: EF community knit project #6. Throw to keep Vlh22 warm of an evening.

Here is my final contribution to Vlh's blanket which will be winging it's way to RufusB next week.


I have seen the cross stitch from 3Wishes too and can confirm that it is truly magnificent ( as they have all been).
