Charity


Even in Norway we do some charity every now and then :)

On most thursdays after work we get together some girls, go to a local pub and sit there knitting the rest of the evening. We have become something of a spectical in this pub, but we love the attention :)

A thursday, not to long ago, we came to talking about leftover yarn and what to do with it... One of the girls had come across a lady that loved making blankets from leftovers, and this lady would take everybodys leftovers as long as they were atleast 2 m long. So this became after awhile an idea to do as so many knitters before us, knitting caps for permature babies. The lady could get all that wasn't suitable for this purpuse.

That evening I came home, got my leftovers out and went to work on Ravelry. So last saturday I made 3 of 5 caps I've made so fare. I'm very proud of myself. There will be many more, and hopfully they will save lives some day soon :)

Very good!
You should be proud. :o)

Can't think of a better use for your leftover yarn.

Keep up the good work!

Å, så flotte luer! Veldig fin måte å bruke opp restegarn på. Jeg ble selv tante til ei lita jente på under kiloen for 2 år siden, så det er absolutt et nyttig arbeid du har gjort for de bittesmå babyene.

Flott innsats!
Kanskje ein ide til etterfølgelse:)

Wollmeise får du kjøpt når hun oppdaterer, og det gjelder å være raskt ute. Som regel kommer det tråder på HB som forteller når det er garn å få kjøpt eller inne på Ravelry. Oftest skjer det på tirsdager. Linken til butikken er: http://shop.strato.de/epages/61425309.sf/en_US/?ViewObjectID=2740967 Da er det bare å kjappe seg til kassa med de nøstene man har fått lagt i kurven. Lykke til.
