3 beautiful patchwork blankets arrived in the post the other day from Sue. Two of them are big enough to cover a single bed and the other one is cot size. They are so colourful and the children will just love them!

Thank you so much for supporting the project with your knitting and for saving me the mammouth task of sewing all those squares together!

More donations

I received two more parcels of donations, the first one from pauline had loads of knitted squares in fabulous shades of cream, brown and peach they are such a great size as they making sewing up a blanket much quicker! She also sent some gorgeous baby hats and cardigans, I just love that rounded neckline with the collar- super cute!

The other parcel came from two ladies in  Pocklington who kindly sent 17 hats and 3 pairs of mittens for  toddlers and young children. They are in great colours and it’s helpful to get things that are slightly bigger too!


So, a great big thank you for take the time to knit and support the project.

A great start to February

Yesterday I recieved so many parcels, it was such a treat to open them as they all contained such wonderful things!

There was a huge brightly coloured blanket and several beautiful crocheted hats from Barbara in Stevenage.


A lady called Kathy  had sent 3 super baby cardigan and hat sets, they are so sweet with their tie fastenings are are made from lovely thick yarn.

The next parcel came from a lady who lives on the Isle of  Man, she had sent several colourful jumpers in slightly bigger sizes which is always great, baby booties and some very cute hats.

The most beautiful baby blanket was sent in by a lady in Basildon. In a mixture of pretty pastels it is just so girlie and prettty.  She also sent in two cardigans and two jumpers which are just as lovely.

Wonderful Hats, cardigans, scarves and squares in all colours and sizes were sent by Jan.  Oh, and she also sent toys!  Colourful jelly baby type people, an elf and two of the most adorable mice!

Another gorgeous girlie blanket was sent by a lady in Chichester.  She also sent lovely toddler sized cardigans which are so pretty  and some beautiful hats.

Thank you so much to everyone for taking the time to knit for the project.  Everything is so beautiful and your help is very much appreciated.

Blanket squares needed

Blanket squares are quick and easy to make and are so useful as they can be made into wonderful patchwork blankets. Squares can be:

  • any colour
  • made from any type of yarn    
  • knitted or crocheted
  • any size, although the best sizes to make  are 4″ 6″ 8″ and 10″

So if you have some scraps in your stash why not donate a few squares to Algerian Action and help to keep some needy children nice and warm. (Completed blankets are also very welcome!)

Pretty Peach

Another parcel of donations arrived, this time it contained lots of beautiful baby cardigans, many of them in a lovely peach colour. Plus baby hats (I love the bobbles!)  and knitted squares some of which have already been knitted up into a blanket. 

Everything is wonderful, so a big thank you for taking the time to make and send them in. I’m only guessing here but, I think I should also be thanking your Nan and Mum too!

Another fabulous donation

Today I received a lovely parcel from a lady living in york. Inside there were 17 beautiful baby hats, 7 knitted squares and a pair of mittens, So a big thank you to her.

Baby hats are needed all year round but particularly in winter, so these are really useful now.

We also need knitted or crochet squares which can be made up into blankets, Squares are super quick to make, use up stash and can really benefit a child – what are you waiting for?
