A square for Christchurch

Just because I have a million and one projects on the go already, doesn't mean I can't cast on another, right?!

I'm about to start knitting a square. Oooh a square - how exciting does that sound? Well this one square is going to be part of a cosy big enough to cover a SHIPPING CONTAINER which makes it just a little bit more bad ass. 

Down in Christchurch they've had to put a line of shipping containers at the bottom of a hillside to protect people and property from further rockfall due to the earthquakes. Some clever person saw these in all their ugliness and though, hey why don't we jazz it up a bit and knit it a cosy?. As far as ideas go, I think this one is pretty darn awesome. 

They need squares of any pattern and colour - they just have to be 30x30cm. The details are on their Facebook page. (Hopefully that link works - otherwise just search container love on Facebook). 

Right I'd better get cracking if I want to get this square started before I have to hit the hay.
