Wool on Sundays...squares for blankets.

Once more joining in with Janine over here at the Rainbow Hare blog for Wool on Sunday.
There's still not much happening by way of crafting here at my place, but while I'm hard at work counting votes and doing scrutinies of postal vote envelopes, I'm still finding time to plan upcoming projects. 
However, I have done a little crocheting. Once again I have been given some lonely 'orphan' afghan squares in a bag of donations for K4BN (Knitting for Brisbane's Needy;the group that I belong to which, not only knits/crochets for needy people, but also sews and provides toiletries etc.)

 The squares were only 6 inches, so I am crocheting more rounds to make them 10 inches...or thereabouts. 

And I had some other orphan squares handed to me late last year; they were a little larger and only need a few extra rows...and these are so colourful.

And my sweet DD1 has given me a bag of 10 inch squares that she has made for K4BN, so it won't be long before I will have enough squares to make a single bed sized blanket. And by then, the cooler weather will have arrived.
(The projects that I'm planning include 2 knitted throws that have been promised to two lovely people in my life who have been waiting a while! :-/ )

They look great. Will be a very colourful blanket. I'm busy working on some baby blankets to add to the winter appeal. But I've kinda been a little busy this weekend lol

good to see the squares are being put to good use, you will be glad when you have more time to yourself once the voting is all over

Hi Marie, thanks for commenting on my blog. It looks like you are a Queenslander too. I had a look at one of your old posts on the Carnival of Flowers and your husband had the 'special' ice cream that I had during a visit to Picnic Point during the Carnival. I first heard of K4BN when a pastor from our church went homeless for a week during Homeless Week last year and some warm clothing was donated by them. I thought it sounds like a great organisation.
