we need your help!
I know that it is summer time and that the weather is hotting up but we really need your help to make blankets!
As you probably know one of the ways we help those in need is through our baby pack project where we give destitute mothers a pack containing essentials for their new born. Along with clothing and other necessities we give a blanket and it is these that we have almost run out of.
Being a not so patient crafter myself I totally appreciate that making a blanket-even a baby sized blanket can be a bit of a slog so I am asking if, instead of taking on that challenge you could knit or crochet some squares that can be then sewn together? We have done this before collectively and the results were beautiful. I hope you can help do it again!
As always yarn can be any type and any color. Squares should be roughly 5″x5″ in size.
Thank you so much for your support.
Have a great Sunday! Emma x

Hello – do the blankets need to be of a particular size? I have lots of baby hats knitted as well if you need them? 😊
Hi Julie, there isn’t a specific size- roughly 25″ but, really any size is welcome. Hats would be fantastic! Thank you so much.
Can we still send items at the London address please?
Yes, you can still send to the London address. Thank you so much for your continued support. Best wishes, Emma
Hi, my name is Kate Gaunt, I recently took over looking after Loving Hands charity knitters, crocheters and stitchers. We have a quarterly challenge and the next one starts at the end of August. I would like to make your blankets / squares one of our challenges and hopefully this should boost your supplies :0)
