1500 squares and counting…

So 80,000 squares sounds like a lot. But after just one month of the project we have passed the 1500 milestone. Everyday boxes and envelopes of squares (well mostly squares… ) arrive at our Melbourne office from all over Australia. The amount of mail arriving makes us feel very popular indeed. Only 78,500 to go!

Soon we will start to stitch the squares together. Already the whole office has had knitting lesson – so we are all nimble with the needles. But we will need help – if you feel like giving us a stitch or two of your time we would love to hear from you.

    I have been able to knit and send in some squares and would be happy to spend some time, stitching together the ones that you have received, if someone could advise when and where, etc. Great cause and happy to help.

    • Thanks Colleen. We haven’t set the date and location in concrete for when we will start knitting the squares together… but at the moment it will be in Melbourne at the start of next year. But that is open to change… we will definitely be posting a call for volunteers and we would love your help. When we set the date (or more likely dates!) for making blankets out of our 80,000 squares we will let you know. Thanks for your support Colleen.
