We love hearing from people who get together for a good ‘knit and natter’, it’s a great way to relax, catch up with friends, and do something for a cause!
We got a lovely email from Anne, who goes to a monthly ‘knit and natter’ in Melbourne. Despite not being a knitter herself, Anne still attends with enthusiasm and helps sew knitted squares together. Over the last 2 winters, she has assembled over 50 blankets! – what a fantastic effort!! She’ll be gearing up her efforts to ensure her completed blankets reach us before September 30th 2012, when Born to Knit finishes for the year!
Anne’s cat Bella has been ‘helping’ Anne sew blankets together. Unfortunately, Bella seems most adamant with getting her ears sewn together whilst Anne is trying to sew. Luckily, Anne’s deft fingers have avoided a sewing related disaster thus far!
Thanks for letting us know about your group’s activities Anne, and sharing a photo of your lovely Bella! We love it when volunteers such as yourself take home squares from our Born to Knit HQ in Collingwood, and return them all sewn up and ready for a child!
Born to Knit relies on community volunteers such as Anne to knit and sew. If you are knitting or sewing for Born to Knit, we’d love to share your story! So send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
