View Full Version : help i am in need
I was wondering if there was any way I could get "donations" for teal colored yarn and white or cream colored yarn. The reason is I just found out that a dear friend of mine has ovarian cancer and I would love to make her a blanket but finances are very tight..If you could help that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and co-operation!

Yes what kind are you looking for? What type of fiber and what weight? Was there a brand you had in mind?
Not very particular to the fiber content I am not picky I would think something not needing allot of care as she is going through chemo threatments. For an example maybe something like 70% cotton 30% wool or acrylic.As far as weight I would say that I used to working with worsted weight but again I will use anything. Also as far as a brand I would have to say that I really like classic elite or even elann or knitpicks but again I will use whatever, I know this doesn't help allot of you but maybe it gives you an idea.. I really hope this helps and if you need anything else just post or pm me. Thanks!
Also I forgot to put how much I would need...Sorry I thought I had everything in the last post..Hehe...Anyway I would have to guess because the crochet version doesnt have how much she used because she is still working on it so I would guess around 2-3 lbs to be on the very safe side ( Gets Dizzy, Falls over and Faints) *thats allot if yarn* <----- thinking to self. But how much would you suggest?

a crocheted ripple afghan takes about 40 ounces for one that fits a twin size bed....
Like I said before I will take whatever I can get. I think 40 oz would do..especially if I knit the blanket.. I think she has a queen sized bed but I wanted this to be an afghan anyway.. Hope this helps

Suggestion - make her one that is about 48 x 56 inches square. this is a good size blanket and she can still cover her legs and lay under it. I've help do 2 blankets of this size and they are great. The blankets where done with 8x8 squares btw.
