So today I went to a knitting event for a fantastic cause. It was held at the Metal offices in Southend and it was part of a big charity knitting event for the homeless charity Crisis. Basically, groups all over the country are knitting one (or more) of 50 blankets, which are all made up of 25cm coloured squares. When all 50 blankets are displayed together, they make a complete picture, and once they are all done they will be exhibited. After that, they will all be distributed for use in the Crisis shelters.
I had a great day and met lots of really interesting people. Plus there was a lot of delicious homemade cake.
Tracy, who managed the event did a fantastic job – the day ran really smoothly and of the 5 blankets we have undertaken, 2 were completely finished and the other three are largely done.
I felt lucky today to be able to meet new people, knit all day long, eat cake and be doing something worthwhile at the same time.
