Six weeks in and all our little knitters are doing a wonderful job! So far we have received 648 blankets from all around Australia. So only fourteen thousand three hundred and fifty two to go (for some reason it doesn’t feel like so many when you write it in words…).
We are also very excited about our Born to Knit schools competition. The entries are flooding in, the prize pool is big, and best of all the kids are learning to knit. Part of the competition registration process is giving us some insight into what the prize money will go towards. From computers, to knitting classes (true!), to play grounds, to donations back to Save the Children we have received some lovely responses. The next generation of knitters are an inspirational lot indeed!
If you are a teacher or a student or someone who knows a cool little school who would love to knit us some blankets (and win $10,000 thanks to our lovely friends over at Patons) please spread the word about our Born to Knit Schools Competition.
Or if you are a knitter just knitting because you were Born to Knit. We think you are fabulous. THANK YOU 🙂
