The Blanket Project is completed!

We have now completed our blankets for charity.  Four blankets were given to Shelter.  Three of them were large enough to fit single beds and the fourth was a little smaller and would fit a cot.

This blanket was made up from 6 inch (15 cm) squares

This blanket was machine kntited in three strips and then joined on a Hague Linker.  It has an extra section that is folded back so that the blanket can be folded and become a pillow - is it a planket or a blanillow?
This blanket is made up of 8 inch (20 cm) squares. Some of the squares knitted for the 6 inch blanket were oversized, so we added sections on, patchwork style, to increase their size.  It made for a rather interesting blanket.

This is the last blanket we made and when we had finished we had just one square left over.

Whe we took them into the Shelter shop in Fleet they were amazed at all our hard work and recieved them with grateful thanks.

And for those of you that knit squres, we asked and yes they do take knitted squares and assemble them into blankets. So if you don't have enough to make your own blanket then take them into the shop in Fleet Road and they will do the rest.

Well done everyone.
