The Winter of Woolly Love 2018/19

Welcome to the Winter of Woolly Love, 2018!

We know some of our crafting crew enjoy to take on a small woolly/crafty project over the Christmas holidays, so are launching our Winter of Woolly Love 2018! This comes to you in two parts!

Part 1. Candy’s Hugs

Over 100 Candy’s Hugs have now gone out to wonderful women undergoing treatment for cancer and we are getting more requests all the time, we’d love to help as many as possible and numbers are running low. So we’d like to dedicate part of our WoWL18 to this project to help.

The Original Candy’s Hug thread is here in Ongoing projects…

All these squares will go to very much needed blankets for women going through different stages of cancer treatment or palliative care, so all very much in need of a cosy comforting Woolly Hug.

Crafting Info

We are looking for 12 inch and 6 inch squares in the Candy’s Hug ‘Vibrant Riot’ palette, complex or simple, single colour or multi colour, crochet or knitted equally welcome. Please use 4mm hook or needles. No blocking necessary.

Message us if you need yarn to be able to take part, this is an inclusive project, but please only take yarn if you will be able to use it, fundraising is a constant worry for us, and we need to be sure folk’s money is spent carefully!

The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK. Just this please for consistency, and in the colours below.

To finish. Securely double knot off leaving about 6 inches of yarn and cut the end off. Then using a needle, sew in the ‘pesky” end so that it disappears in the edge of your square. All squares must have their ends sewn in please.

All crafting abilities genuinely welcome, squares made by beginner or expert will be equally cherished. Simple, complex, single colour, mixed colour. It really is the love and thought that counts.

If you feel ambitious and would like to make a whole blanket, then that is wonderful, we are aiming for blankets approx 48 inches by 60 inches, certainly no smaller.

Part 2. Hearty Hearts

We would like to collect crochet, knitted or stitched 3D hearts (so not single sided) these to be no bigger than 20cm MAX and to have a hanging loop. They can be padded or just double sided. Other than this the style is very much up to you. These are for a special phase of a project happening around Easter time, news of this as soon as all is confirmed, please bear with us on this!

Have put some links and images below, you may well have your own ideas!

Posting please January 14th or as soon after as possible. Do say in your note they are from this event!  Address will be Southsea, do message us if you need it.

Item 341. Christmas wreath for the Wine lovers!!

An absolute pleasure to share my wine cork collection gathered over <ahem> time in this way!! To be fair both of us here have drunk our way through many of these bottles!😁 Each cork is used, some a bit battered, most still giving off the scent of wine! Each wreath has 48 corks on a Christmas red crocheted covered base. The tartan ribbon is easily untied if you decide a cork wreath is for life not just Christmas. The wreath base size is 32cm in diameter.

Need to drink more wine, get more corks now 😀
