I have completed the red and white crochet blanket for The Big Knit at the Orbital. The majority of the yarn is leftovers. My own plus yarn from the big shopping trolley which comes to our gatherings , donated by anyone with leftover yarn, and free for us to put to good use in the form of warm clothing and blankets, which are then offered to people who are homeless. In the case of blankets, toys etc offered to people moving into a home of their own with few personal goods. It is to give that accommodation the homely touch. Anyway enough prattling, here it is –
I bought the White yarn for the border as I didn’t want to play yarn chicken. Colours chosen to appeal to football fans.
Personally I’d have made it bigger but that’s the size they wanted.
So now I have a blanket and a giraffe to take with me to group next month. I’m going for yellow and blue next, more football colours.
