Recovery Blanket

Recovery Blanket1

I have been working on the Recovery Blanket again this past weekend and just love the process of sewing together all these beautiful rectangles. I can feel the love and caring that went into each piece as I pick them up and start sewing. To think that many of these rectangles were knitted by knitters from all over the world is so heartwarming. I am very humbled by all the kindness that went into this project and I thank you:) I try to sew a row at a time and hope to finish in the next 2 weeks. I will then give the blanket to my dear mom in memory of my dad.

Wishing you a weekend filled with goodness and peace.

    It is very nice to see the blanket’s progress. I’m sure matching all those squares, which must vary in size a bit, is harder than you have made it look!

    Love this blanket! Reminds me of a patchwork I did in the ’70’s! Have a great weekend.

    Oh, Linda – your Recovery Blanket is coming along so beautifully. What a power*full, warm, caring gift.

    What a lovely expression of love!

    This blanket may be for your Mom but I think it is safe to say that we all participated not just for her but because of our deep feelings for you and your loss. meeting your family is fun but I don’t recall meeting Mom. They are so fortunate to have family whose focus is on them and their welfare. Bet you learned that from your Mom. My compliments to her for an obvious labor of love…well done!

    Linda, your blanket is so beautiful! I love those colourful squares! And the cowl in your earlier post is fantastic! x Teje

    It is looking great Linda. Your mum will be delighted with it. Incidentally we are knitting squares for the victims of Tasmanian bushfires currently. How do you sew up the squares – is there any particular stitch you use?

    It’s going to be a stunning blanket when it’s finished and what a worthy and beautiful project 🙂

    I love knitting blankets! I know that knitting millions of blocks can be tedious at times, but once you start sewing all those blocks together, nothing is more beautiful! Enjoy the sewing up, your mum will enjoy using the blanket come winter.
