Thank you ever so much for the information!I don't quite know what 8ply means,as I live in Germany.I used two strands of yarn and cast on 35stitches with 4mm knitting needles.It seems to be working for a regular square.Will also try your diagonal square:-)
You were concerned about the arrival of your parcel and I have just noticed this photo amongst the last batch I received. I haven't been able to match it to a particular blanket at present but at least something has arrived safely. I'll let you know if I find anything else,
Hi Susanne. I see you have already caught up with the news that Ronda wants those of us in the forum to join the squares as they are overwhelmed with squares to join. I have been crocheting them together as it suits me. I put a demo photo on the forum. I lay out 10 and then hold them back to back and crochet a continuous join across the five meeting sides. I have also decided to knit five in one go i.e. knitting a strip. The tails are good for sewing together. I took my off 35 squares worth of tails and knitted 18 fish to add on. Maudie
Hi Susan :) I hope you enjoyed your short stay in Holland, unfortunately the weather was grey and cold. Also I heard that there was a dance festival and a marathon in Amsterdam this weekend, so I hope it was not too overcrowded :))
Next time you visit Holland we hopefully can meet, eat and chat and there is a lot more to see in my tiny country :)
Wish you a good flight to Milan, speak soon, take care.
Hi Susan, I hope you receive this message. It should be great to meet! A lovely surprise that you are in Amsterdam! I live at about 24 miles from Amsterdam. Till when are you here? Where, when can we meet? Anneke :)
KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017. If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.
