Creating a Memory Blanket
I felt in my heart that I must do something for them. So I am collecting granny squares to create a memory blanket for the family of the girl who was killed. I am asking all those who can contribute some to help. Even if it's just one square, everyone helps. I am hoping to have about 100, 6" x 6" squares. I will assemble them once I have enough.
I have started to make some myself. Not knowing these girls, I am just trying to use feminine colors, flowers, hearts, and anything else I can think of. Some are plain squares, some have design or items on them. Here are a few that I have started.
here. It was a little tricky to figure out, as the instructions are a translation from Spanish, but with the photos, you can figure it out.
It took me a little while, so I am not sure how many of these I will add to this particular blanket, but I would like to try them again in different colors. I am sure once I make a few, they will go much quicker and easier.
I have a few more ideas for different squares with design elements, and I will be making several plain grannies in various colors as well. I find there is something therapeutic in crocheting a granny square.
I am looking for 6 x 6 inch granny squares, acrylic yarns only, with feminine colors. They can be plain, designed, or anything you can think of.
