I’m very excited about a project that is beginning as a wonderful partnership. Sophie Kurnik, owner of the wonderful Bluebird Yarn and Fiber, is donating yarn to make baby and children’s blankets for the Afghans for Afghans project. The church that I’m serving, Sausalito Presbyterian Church, has a bunch of knitters willing to knit squares to make blankets. So, by April, I’m hopiing that between the customers of Bluebird, the knitters at the church, and friends thereof, we’ll have a bunch of warm blankets to send to those who need them.
This is something that I’ve wanted to do in the past, but never gotten off the ground.
If you’d like to knit a square and want some yarn, we’ve got a bunch of colors of Mauch Chunky (Kraemer Yarns), and we’re knitting 10 inch squares in dense (not lacy) stitch patterns. Post in the comments if you live locally and would like to get a skein, and we’ll work it out.
Edited to add a photo of my sample square:
