woollies for tassie.

the lovely folks behind the craft hive have organised a drive for some wooly squares, to be joined up into blankies and gifted to tassie peeps in need after the recent bushfires.
i decided to contribute, joining up the baby squares i found op-shopping wayyyy back here to make up 8" squares.

i joined them as i went, hooking a single row of single crochet as the basis, and then finishing them up with a row of single crochet around the finished square.

i finished up with 13 squares...
there were enough squares to make 12, with 2 squares left over, oh and one i'd hooked up and stored with them at some point.
a quick scrounge through the stash yielded up some bits and pieces in the colours i'd used to make that square, so i quickly hooked up another and brought the total to 13!

i'll be popping these in the post tomorrow. hopefully they don't take long to get where they need to be.

big props to the the craft hive folks. they're doing a fantastic thing!

are you joining in with #woolliesfortassie?
do you have lots of squares in your stash too?

ps. joining the squares together burnt through 4 and a bit balls of wool from my stash. yay stash busting challenge!

These granny squares are really cute! It is great to combine charity with stash-busting. Win-win!
