Knit One Save One is primarily doing the big push for 20cm by 20cm knitted squares. And today we are only 23 squares away from cracking the 12,000 mark. A hip hip hooray and a big pat on the back for us all.
The response has evidently been overwhelming. But it seems that the level of knitting skill, dedication and perhaps stitching speed is forever increasing. Every day the number of knitted blankets (not just squares) arriving grows. As much as we love to open a parcel of squares, the squeal of excitement that escapes for a fully knitted blanket is impossible to muffle.
So if you are able to knit a full blanket that would be fantastic (we do count it as 16 squares… so the tally receives a great boost!).
We also received a wonderful response to our call for knitting volunteers and will be in contact with you all shortly. If you would still like to be part of our team that will knit the squares into blankets it is not too late to shout out. We are looking primarily for Melbourne based volunteers… but we are also trying to sort something out in Sydney. Just send an email with your details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Conclusion: There are many knitters out there with big hearts. And we only need 68,000 more squares… ‘only’ not the appropriate choice of word… so may the hearts continue to grow, and may the fingers continue to knit.
