Knitting a scarf in this household has some particular furry hazards. Skimble loves to tread any knitted garment and seems to think balls of wool are kittens that need to be moved out of his mum's way! This is the scarf I'm knitting for Pakistan - just one more foot to go and then it'll be off to Plant Whatever Brings You Joy.
If knitting a five foot long scarf is a bit much for you, but you'd still like to get involved in a knitting project, then look no further than Innocent drinks' the big knit. It involves knitting miniature hats which are then placed on their 330ml drinks bottles for sale in November. Each sale results in a 50p donation to Help the Aged. Over £200,000 was raised last year. I'll be knitting some after I've finished this scarf, so I'll tell you more about that another time. The deadline's 17th October, but as the hat is tiny and relatively easy to make, there's time to make a shedload of them and still meet the date!
NB This is my 366th post this year - a post a day, but finished by October. I contemplated having the rest of the year off, but find I can't shut myself up that easily ;)
For other K posts do have a look at the ABC Wednesday blog.
