REVISIONS

We have 17 participants. That means 1 square to knit/crochet for someone else. You will get 15 back. That’s because Dorothy is not knitting, but we are each making one for her.

There should be 2 completed each week to stay on track, 1 square for someone else, 1 square for you. For a square you would need 16 or 25 squares total
Next check in will be March 19.

Some changes since we first started this project. What has not changed is that we are knitting a square each for Dorothy, who is not knitting. The squares will not make as big of a project as we first thought, however, the project is smaller and more workable, I think.

Try to stay connected enough to give updates on your progress.

If I can summarize:

  1. each member will get a parcel of yarn that contains one skein/ball dominant yarn (color #1 of their 5).

  2. each participant will also receive color samples of all the colors in the pallet of the yarns for the squares they will make for others, each will be marked so you know who it should go to.

  3. Everyone will be free to do whatever they want in design in knit or crochet.

  4. Each participant will make 1 square for 17 full size project participants. The remaining yarn to do as they wish

  5. Each square should be 6”, unblocked.

  6. Each participant will be responsible for mailing their squares to the other participants involved. If anyone has a good idea about mailing, be sure to let us know. The approximate weight of 1 squares would be approximately 5g, which is less than half an oz. According to USPS, that would be about .94 US to Germany/Finland, .72 US to Canada and .42 within the US. Apologies for the Royal Mail people, I don’t understand your postal cost estimator. Estimate: 12@ .42 = $5.04 2@ .94 =1.88 1@ .72 = .72 = $7.64 in total postal costs each participant (approximate)

  7. Deadline for completion of everyone’s squares is April 20.
