WI's, Resolutions & Knitted Squares!

We are growing quickly!

Sit and Knit a Bit - 100 Million Stitches -International Women's Day Project!  
This project is to highlight the resaons why 100 million women are not in the world today because of gender discrimination. They are aiming to receive around 60 - 100 million knitted squares to create a large knitted blanket. They estimated that to make the blanket that large they will have to get around 600 knitted squares a day, so get involved!
The guidelines are to knit roughly around 6x6 knitted square using any yarn and any needles. You can also knit as many as you like! Your design can be completely your own with words, something personal and much more.
Please send your finished squares to -
