We got a lovely email from on-going supporter Suzanne, (right in photo) who has rallied her friends and other enthusiastic knitters to get together for Born to Knit!
“I took part in the Born to Knit campaign last year. I mentioned it to my friend Gloria (left in photo) and told her that when the campaign finished I intended to keep knitting and when the campaign for 2012 was announced we would have blankets to bring straight into Save the Children. Gloria mentioned the squares to her friend Rona (centre in photo) and she decided to help.
Knitting squares and making blankets is not really difficult for us, and even though it is a small thing, for a child who is cold it may mean alot.
Since Rona became involved, Gloria has approached other friends of hers, namely Marge and Elizabeth, and they too, are knitting squares. My job, apart from knitting myself, is to put all the squares together. We are all so lucky we live in this wonderful country.”
Thanks so much Suzanne for your lovely email and ongoing support. You’ve gathered a wonderful group of knitters for Born to Knit, and we’re really grateful for your group’s support. Indeed, a blanket for a child can mean alot.
