Knit Relief has gone live! I urge you to check it out (and put in some bids) as there are some really great items for sale, all in a very good cause. Fancy a bag for your knitting or sewing supplies? Or a truly fabulous print for the wall of your crafting room? (You’ll have to beat me off for that one.) It’s not all knitting. There’s also a beautiful quilt and a crocheted kermit. Something for everybody! The entire Ebay store of over 50 goodies can be found here.
My contribution is the Anthro Inspired Scarflet. You can place a bid here. I used two hanks of Malabrigo Worsted and doubled up my wool (ie knitted it with two strands of wool) to give it a nice, structural density. I didn’t want to see those leaf shapes flip flapping around!
The wool is a gorgeous soft merino with beautiful hand dying. I can’t recommend it enough.
Thanks so much to Teen Granny for inviting me to take part in Knit Relief. Becoming involved has not only allowed me to do something altruistic, but I’ve discovered some great new blogs, too. Double score! Pop on over to Cherry Men Love. Her thoughts on blogging brought a lump to my throat:
I don’t see the point in having a website that people read unless you get to write about things that are very important to you from time time. This is one of those times. Scarlett is important to me (she reminds me of my daughter, it’s the big blue eyes) and Sport Relief is important to me. This Thursday you can see the documentary on David Walliams’ swim along the River Thames at 9pm on BBC. I already have my sky box primed.
I couldn’t agree more! I simply can’t believe that a teenage girl with school demands has organised all of this on her own. Teen Granny will go far! For now, she’s just – you know – changing lives. In between doing her homework.
Makes me feel very humble indeed.
