Poncho perfect

The other week we received a donation of a brightly coloured poncho- it was totally lovely and just the perfect thing for the colder weather. It got me thinking that actually, ponchos are the perfect item of clothing to give to those in need as it isn’t a fixed size so, can be shared by siblings.

So, I thought I would have a go at making a knitted version myself and oh my goodness, it was so simple and such a quick knit- basically knit two rectangles and sew them together, add an edge and attach some tassels. my 5 year old has claimed this one as hers but I plan to make more for some of the girls in Algeria as I know they will adore them!

More brilliant donations have been sent in the past week- here are just a few pics but huge thanks to all those who have given.



Progress is being made on our blanket coats, I hope to show the first creation very soon!  Each one will take approximately 115 knitted/crocheted 5” squares so any help with this would be much appreciated.

Hoping you have a wonderful start to September!

So cute!

This parcel of donations arrived on Wednesday so I should have posted this sooner but my two year old decided to break the camera! and well, posts seem a bit boring without a picture to show off the wonderful work.

Inside the parcel were these ever-so-cute baby sets of a hat and cardigan in a rainbow of different colours and some large sized knitted squares which are really great for blanket making!  Everything is beautifully made.

Thank you so much for thinking of the children in Algeria and taking the time to knit and post your donations, your help is much appreciated.  Sorry for being a bit slow in writing this…….
