Jodie, at Strings & Yarn, has come up with a really, really cool swap idea. The Charity Blanket Swap. The blanket will grow square by square as the participants send it along after attaching a square of their own. We’re also supposed to send along treat or two to the next knitter with the blanket. There are no limitations on what a person can attach to the blanket (the size of the square, colour, etc), so there’s a lot of freedom of expression involved.

In the end, the blanket will go to the Children’s Cancer Fund of New Mexico.

So if you’re interested: read the rules, send your info to Jodie, and get planning on what kind of square you want to knit!

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
