With a little help...

Hi all,

Staff in my department at work are doing a knit along type of thingo (sounds technical doesn't it), making blanket squares, scarves, hat's etc. They are going to make blankets (yes I know that's obvious) to donate and sell the other bit's and bob's that they get. The money raised will be donated to the various Winter Appeals around Australia. Being the only person in my department in WA Im using the time on the bus rather than my non-existent lunch breaks.

I was wondering if anyone has any half balls of whatever yarn that I could use to add to the couple I have. I know not everyone likes knitting blanket squares or boring garter stitch scarves but apparently I cant knit my socks on the bus because Im too uncoordinated and keep dropping stitches or dpns :(

I figured I can do something for the community while learning different stitches in small squares.

Oh and I'll buy you a coffee (or what ever your drinking) if you have any yarn for me on Monday!!!!

Thanks

Any particular weight of yarn? I'm sure I could send a few your way.

nope, if it's skinny I'll double knit it, if it's fat it will knit up quick :D

Thanks to everyone who bought me yarn last night. I have been without internet since I posted this request *sigh*. Any fiber is fine, if there is enough I will make hats or scarf's if not I will make blanket squares. We are knitting until the end of July so I can wait until next week for more yarn.

I will post pic's of what I create from your bit's and bob's.

THANKS AGAIN!!!!!
