This year Simply Knitting and The Knitter magazines, have nominated domestic violence charity, Refuge, as their charity of the year. To support the important work that they do and to bring some comfort to the women and children in refuges, a Comfort Blanket campaign has been launched.
I am a member of the Belfast SnB Knitting Group and we have decided to get involved. We are getting together to knit a couple of squares (15x15cm) each and then sew them altogether into a blanket for the Refuge Charity Project.
I have completed my first square today. I did the Martin Storey ‘Lace Heart & Bobble Square’ featured in the magazine (The Knitter, Issue 33).
