Once again I'm joining in with Jodie the Haby Goddess and her regular Monday feature Make-Grow-Thrift. Last year I wrote about volunteering to take a box of donated squares that had been given to the group I belong to, Knitting for Brisbane's Needy. So far I've made 3 blankets (one is in the banner of my blog) and number 4 is being worked on now. I might add that the box is still half full so plenty of work still to do.

When I sorted all the squares and put like with like etc, there were a number of square/rectangular shapes, in just 3 colours, possibly knitted by the same person. I wondered whether they were practice swatches or maybe samples of various patterns; they are quite varied in their sizes but all beautifully knitted.

There were only 16 of them so not enough to make a blanket on their own. So on the weekend I started 'fiddling' with these shapes plus others in the box and gradually a 'crazy' patchy blanket is starting to emerge...early days yet though. But I find I'm really enjoying the challenge of creating something out of all these odds and ends.

Postscript:- A reminder that Friday Night Sew In is on again this Friday night (Feb 17). Why not sign up over on Heidi's blog right now?
