On Saturday 21st March a group of us from Ravelry who know Robynn of the Purlescence online knitting shop either as friends, customers or buisness colleagues put together a joint online and real time baby shower.
A whole group of us had been plotting online since last October to get together to create something very special for a very special lady for whom we all had great affection.
I apologise now as I have been a little late getting this post together. It has been a really exciting project to co-ordiante and one which was greatly received by the recipient.
Between us, all over the world from Canada, to Australia and the USA as well as Europe we have been knitting squares to create a Barn Raising Quilt from the book, Knitalong. We have had great fun in our own secret Ravelry group where we could discuss what we were doing without being discovered.
After decidig suitable colours as we all knew Robynn is in general not a pastels girl, it was off to select yarn and knit.
Just after christmas the squares started rolling in and then it was time to organise them and start the whole process of sewing up.
Thanks to Ling and Suki who came over for an evenings sewing up at my house to get the main strips joined together.
Anyway the final result was really great and we had a great time eating cake, playing in the yarn room and playing one or two games in ready preparation of the impending step into motherhood.
The Baby shower
Well interestingly enough I am posting this on your due date so we will now sit and wait and all see what happens.
