Patchwork blankets II

My pile of knitting squares!

I got my last packages of crocheted and knitted squares from two fantastic Etsy sellers.

Thank you so much for your help, kindness and generosity.

They will soon be in my country to help earthquake affected people get warm in the cold weather in the South. If you don't already know about the beautiful cause called "frazada solidaria" (solidarity blanket) I invite you to read my article about it.

The first squares that I sent to Chile were already sewn together to create more blankets.

Check out this link with some pictures about the sewing process in Chile.

Let me share with you some pictures about the beautiful squares that I got!

Squares going to Chile! Yuppie!





Next are my squares. This time I knitted them because for me it's faster than crochet. I'm trying to use different kinds of yarn that I have in my house. Hope they like them! They are made with a lot of patience an dedication!

Thank you so much!

I just LOVE your squares. I love the colors and textures of the yarns you chose. What a beautiful way to do something wonderful for the place you call home. I checked out the link and those pictures make my heart feel so wonderful. I love seeing kindness in action!

your squares are beautiful! If I knew how to knit or crochet, I would definitely help out!

I was so excited to have a comment from you! I've missed you! ;)

They are all so beautiful, and the generosity behind the cause makes them even more appealing. I know how to knit, but I'm not very good and I'm not sure how to finish a knitting project. I really wish I could help though. Maybe I need to learn how to crochet, because a lot of people have told me that they found it to be easier. Good luck on this amazing thing you're doing!
