What a spectacular blanket, Helen.

A crocheted edge is not essential, but your idea of including some yarn and note what it is for, is a good one.

Thanks for the reply, Anne. I will hopefully be posting it off in the next few days and will make sure to include the note. :)

I'm glad you like the blanket too!

A fabulous blanket !!

It's beautiful, Helen.  :))

Wow! That is really lovely.  A true piece of art. Some one will treasure it. I know I would. :)


I mailed two packages of squares from a different post office (Japan) and they made me put a value on the package. I put 1 yen on one and 10 yen on the other. They weren't happy with the 1 yen amount. I argued with them that the other post office had never made me do that before. I will go back to the main post office next time I mail anything!

Is there a way to find out if KAS is going to be charged a fee for my packages? If so, I'd like to pay the feel. I can just donate that amount. 



Hi Juli - The KAS office in SA is closed at present. Ronda is currently on holiday with family. We will contact them and find out , have these parcels been sent recently ?  it might be that we will have to wait until they arrive ?

Yes, I sent them in November. I'm not sure of the date, but can try to figure it out. They were sent by ship so it might be a while. 


Juli we opened a parcel with your lovely lilic completed blanket yesterday.

Last week we opened a parcel of yours with beautiful squares. I've used them in a blanket with a smilie face in the center. I handed it in yesterday so I'm sure you will see it soon on The Blanket Room.

I will post the blanket on my face book page later in the week. Just need to finish some borders for this weeks blankets.

Sorry for the late response here. I always forget there is a way to message people individually. I'm glad the packages arrived. I just wanted to make sure that there weren't any fees that had to be paind.

Hi Juli, Your squares are in the just edited January 2017 squares list. Hope these are the 3 parcels you were looking for. :)


after finishing all my Christmas projects I went to my local yarn shop and found out that the company Red Heart are stopping all imports to the Czech republic (where I live). After sorting out my yarn I found out I have loads of odd skeins of Red Heart Detroit (http://www.redheart.co.uk/yarn/detroit). My question is if this yarn is thick enough for squares or if it would be better if I double up the yarn so the squares are warmer,

Thank You.
