A little inspiration from other knitters never goes astray. Every day we receive hundreds of beautifully knitted and designed squares. And only I get to see them. Not very fair. So after reading a card from Sophie in Sydney this morning asking to see more photos of the squares that we are receiving so she could get inspiration for her next batch of knitting I took out the camera and snapped away. Of course you can Sophie. Here are a handful of the squares that we received this morning.
Apart from the photos, there is another source of knitting inspiration that must be shared.
Today we received a box of 7 beautifully, knitted blankets. Enclosed was a letter that read as follows.
‘Mrs. Westley is 86 yrs old, almost completely blind, and has had one leg amputated due to poor circulation. Though almost completely bedridden, she knits the strips that these rugs are made of, changing colour when she has completed a square. To change colours she uses a strip of cardboard with a black mark to indicate the length of knitting needed to complete each square.’
Now she is indeed an inspirational woman, her efforts are much appreciated, and these are her beautiful blankets. Thank you Mrs. Westley.
