Just a such a happy, productive day, great to meet you all. And what an achievement. Thanks to all the Purl's Princesses. And to you Susan especially for you part in it all.

Lovely to meet you too Susan

Thanks so much for all your hard work. It's really, really appreciated.

I've done about fifteen squares as well, but over a much longer period of time. Aiming for a blanket is a fabulous goal. Good luck and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Cheers Susan.

it was such a pleasure to finally meet you Kalai, and also Cressida and Sandy and to watch Cressida make her first foray into Knitdom :]

I've made a couple more squares since I got home yesterday so that takes my personal tally to 15 - I'm aiming at 40 so that even though they won't all go into one blanket, I can think of it as one blanket's worth ... so by that accounting I'm slightly over a third of the way to my goal.

Yes congratulations indeed! A wonderful day and thank you to all for your warm encouragement as I finally learnt to knit! 111 squares is an awesome effort, let's make it a nice and round 120 at the next event. By that stage I'll be able to contribute a square or two (albeit pretty wonky ones, if my efforts yesterday are anything to go by!!)

Hi everyone and CONGRATULATIONS to the Daylesford Purl's Palace Princesses! Thank you so much to you all for your contributions we collected 111 squares yesterday. We had such a lovely day and it was fantastic to meet you all. We look forward to another Daylesford knit-a-square day in the not too distant future.

Hi Lynne thanks heaps for your offer of wool. I'm sure there will be people who'd be very grateful to take you up on that as wool/yarn can be quite expensive if you're buying a lot of it.

That would be really nice.We are near the end of the new Forrest Highway.

Hi Llynne, Hoping to move to Connolly, Currambine, Joondalup area, waaaaaay north of you. However, next time we head south I will certainly let you know. Cheers, Pat
