THE GREAT WHODUKNIT ARAN CHARITY BLANKET
I'm excited about this - so let's get started! Here's how it will work.
If you want to participate, you will need to knit one, or more, 12" squares which will eventually be sewn together into a blanket and given to a charity (yet to be determined). Squares should be made from a washable worsted weight yarn (Woolease is a good one) in any shade of green. The squares can be anything from an intricate aran pattern, to a simple moss, or even garter stitch pattern, whatever your skill level and time constraints allow. What a great way to try out new patterns, use up some stash, and do something for charity too! There are some great aran patterns here and here.
If you want to be part of "The Great Whoduknit Aran Charity Blanket KAL" leave a comment on this post, along with your suggestion for a charity. When your squares are finished, post a picture and send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will let you know where to send them.
And, oh yes, there will be prizes! Everyone who sends a square will receive a beaded bookmark. Other prizes will be awarded for the first square sent, the most squares sent and a random drawing of all the squares sent. (Don't get too excited though, this is a low budget operation LOl).
