Got Yarn?

I have been knitting, crocheting, etc.  since early childhood.  This has resulted in quite a few bits of leftover yarn.  It has gotten to the point where I feel I cannot buy any more until I use some of it up.  I’m not keen on stripes and have already done some Fair Isle.   So I was very happy to find a site that organizes knitting (and crocheting) for charity.  It is a simple project, one sends an 8 inch (20cm) square(s) and  they are made into blankets and wraps and maybe other things, for orphans living in poverty.  Any colours, any weight, any stitch, just so it makes up warm.  It only took a few minutes to get the 20cm wide part and not that much longer to get the 20cm long.

Here is a link to the site:

Knitting for charity?

 

This is the square I started last night.  It’s finished now.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
