Your charity knits...
It’s always great seeing what you’ve been knitting for those in need. You’re all such a charitable bunch, keep up the good work!
I’ve been knitting jumpers for lambs on farms here in Australia, as we’re having a drought. I’ve also been knitting Twiddlemu s. So many things are knitted and crocheted in the two groups that I’m in, here in Oz. Baby beanies are going to a nearby ambulance station on Thursday, as more babies are being born en route to hospital. The paramedic I spoke to really got the purpose of the Twiddlemu s, which I came across in your magazine a few years ago. Stephenie Milne, Australia, via Facebook
Here are my innocent smoothie hats for The Big Knit, for Age UK. I have joined in twice so far and made quite a lot (not all in this photo). Also, these are two of the baby hats I knitted for our local hospital and some knitted poppies – I put money in a Royal British Legion charity box when I’d finished them. Heather Smith, via Facebook
A BOX FULL
I knit hats and bootees for my local Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU). I knit until the box is full and then I donate it. Rebecca Dukes, via Facebook
What sweet jumpers, Stephenie! Those little lambs will be kept warm and cosy in those
What a brilliant idea – that’s going to be a lot of little hats and bootees. Keep it up, Rebecca!
Twiddlemu s are so useful, this is such an impressive one!
Knitting poppies and donating money is such a brilliant idea!
That’s a lot of mini hats, Heather! We can’t believe you’ve knitted even more than we can see here…
