Hi Cherry I took a quick look and I saw your squares too! I can imagine that you were thrilled to see them in a blanket :). On the package inventory list I fill in 35 squares, because in fact the blanket is equal to 35 squares, 8" each. When I should make a blanket that does not consist of 35 squares but the size is acording to the KAS size I should fill in 1 blanket. Hope to have been of help, wish you a lovely weekend :)  xoxo

Hi Cherry! Here is the little monkey and the blanket, I have send the package a couple of months ago and I was very much afraid that it didn't arrive! I'm sure the team has been extremely busy, otherwise they should have informed me. You made my day! xoxo

Hi Cherry, Thank you soooooo much for the message about the blanket and the monkey! I made the blanket, my lovely niece made the monkey. I am thrilled that the package arrived safely! xoxo Anneke

Hi Cherry

Glad you like my go-over and squares.  Yes there are 30 and then the wool ran out.  Still more to come though and I will be having a go at the hand warmers. Happy crocheting/knitting

Hi Cherry, got the crochet square finished and posted photo.  My camera just does not bring out the true colours but others seem to have the same problem.  I posted a note with the photo: 

With thanks to Cherry Ames' letters and teaching tips on crochet, this square came out - Square ! !   instead of an Isosceles Trapezoid (my usual result).  :)

Hi Cherry
Thanks so much for pointing out the teddies! My daughter was so pleased! Lovely to see. The African tribe dolls were brilliant, we both liked those. I'll see if I can get beyond squares and beanies...
