I made it.
Remember my post back on the 11 of January (Knit one save one) where I wrote about an ad in a newspaper that was finally worth printing. Where I was reading the Queensland Courier Mail and I saw an ad with the heading 'knit one save one' to help save children in need around the world?
Well here is my progress. It has taken me ten squares to knit one without any mistakes but I'm getting through them pretty quickly now.
This lot here will be sent off tomorrow and in the meantime I'll be starting on my next batch.
And just for a giggle I thought I'd kit myself a hat and here is the result. Again full of mistakes but I'm learning a lot along the way.
When I started I thought all I'd need would be a couple of needles and some wool. Well that has grown to five sets of needles, one set of 40cm circular needles, a craft needle and a tape measure. Oh and some of those double pointed needles most of which I didn't even know existed until now.
Anyone else taken up the challenge yet? I'd love to post about your progress.
Cheers and happy knitting
