Welcome to our Summer of Woolly Love 2021!
We go on our summer break from Monday 25th July (posting to us stops for the summer on July 15th) and we will be back on September 19th. It has been another challenging time and we can’t thank everyone enough for all your hard work, compassion and enthusiasm.
We know that many of you love a summer break project, some of you certainly need to be kept out of mischief 🙂 and if you need yarn to take part, please do message us.
Little Hugs for teens in GOSH ICU and the Teen cancer ward at The Royal Marsden.
We would like to make as many squares as possible for blankets for our wonderful teens in ICU in Great Ormond Street. Having dropped off the most enormous collection recently, we need to have more for the Autumn! Six or twelve inch squares please, knit or crochet. Not too lacy, but otherwise style, single colour/mixed colour, complexity etc totally up to you. What we would ask is that you double knot to finish (or colour change) and use a needle to sew your ends in. We have had a recent spate of collapsing squares and these blankets will have a hard life in terms of frequent washing so must be STURDY. If looking to make a whole blanket, it needs to be minimum 48 inches by 60 inches, so single bed sized.We really need these too!
We plan to use our Vibrant Riot palette as it is so super cheery.
Last posting for our Summer of Woolly Love project is Saturday 25th September
