This weekend I've spent a good few hours (5, to be exact) stitching together knitted and crocheted squares. The venue was the Tramway in Glasgow and my stitching was part of a project to make a blanket for International Women's Day, with 100 million stitches to represent 100 million women who are estimated to be missing from the world today due to violence and gender discrimination. You can find out more about the project here.
I had previously knitted some squares for the project and there were hundreds requiring to be sewn together. Normally I hate sewing up pieces of knitting but I really enjoyed contributing to the project and the time just flew in. It was lovely to think of all the love and care which had been put into making all the squares and it was such a nice atmosphere to be in. I will be returning to Tramway on Tuesday evening to see the knitting displayed, so there will be even more photos to come...
