Hi Aprile, not dumb at all....there are no dumb questions.  :))

Sharon Fennell. Christine Chiplen and many others whom I cannot think of, off the top of my head, have made beautiful blankets in one piece.....the size of 40" x 56".   Have fun.  :))

This might be a dumb question... instead of doing squares (I do plain janes) is it possible to crochet the entire blanket in one piece?

Oh you are (as always) so helpful, dear Bev! I had no idea about girth... I will check out that link. Thanks heaps :)

I have always posted mine by economy seamail.......and I ask for the 30+ working days to get there. When I go to the Australia Post website, the only thing I see to be concerned about is the 140cm girth limit. I never noticed it until recently....but I am pretty unobservant...lol. If your squares packed into a parcel under that girth limit, I would do 1 parcel. I used to send 2 smaller parcels, 'til I realised that was costing me $20-$30+ more. My parcels are usually about 70cm long and I just make sure they are under the 140cm around...my post office can be pretty picky.

Bev, we are becoming more and more savvy by the minute :)

A postage question: I have just over 300 squares: I've been saving up for postage.... do you happen to know if it would be cheaper to sea freight them from Sydney as a single (huge) parcel, or smaller ones?

Comment by Bev Jeffery on March 10, 2017 at 3:23pm

Aha, didn't know that either, as I have my paypal attached to a bank account not debit/credit card.....just need to make sure I keep enough in the account....lol.
