Cwtch of comfort
After a couple of weeks of elbow trouble I am back to crocheting like my life depends on it. My sister Liz has started a drive for granny squares to make blankets for the 'Cwtch of comfort' project. The blankets made up will be used in bereavement boxes for the parents of babies/young children who have passed away.
For a parent to lose a child must be impossibly hard and trying to offer comfort at this time is what this project is about. My sister has done a wonderful blog post about it so go and find out more here askthespider.blogspot.co.uk.
Liz is asking for 6" crochet or knitted squares in white/cream or gender nonspecific pastel shades like lilac/mint green. Her deadline for receiving these is the end of May so if you also want to contribute a square or two then best get started!
I'm hoping to finish up my stack of lilac grannys (shown in the photo) and turn them into a completed blanket to send as well as working up some more squares as well. The pattern I've used for my squares is called 'Circle of Friends' designed by Priscilla Hewitt and you can find it here Circle of Friends square.
