Sarah London has organised Crochet a Rainbow, a granny square drive for the benefit of flood victims in Queensland and Victoria.
From Sarah’s blog:
As many of you worldwide already know, Australia has recently been experiencing floods of huge proportions. The devastation is beyond words, lives have been lost, thousands of homes have been inundated with water, many families have lost all of their belongings.
I’d like to inject some sunshine and colour into the lives of those affected by the floods as they begin to re-build and start over.
I’m asking for donations of granny squares which I will then make up into blankets to be distributed to those affected throughout Queensland and Victoria, providing comfort and colour and as a reminder that there is always a rainbow after a storm.
Donated granny squares are to consist of 5 rounds each, this will make it easier for joining.
Granny squares may be made from either acrylic yarn or pure wool.
Raid your stash, select all colours of the rainbow and get hooking!
Feel free to make as many granny squares as you’d like, the more the merrier.
To sign up please email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Crochet a Rainbow’ in the subject line. Please include your name, country and blog if you have one. Names, along with a link to your blog will be added to the participants page as sign ups progress.
The address to send your granny squares will be emailed to you.
