Knitting, Crochet and Petunias

22 Jun

I heard today that our local hospital is again, after covid, collecting traffic light hats and bonding squares for new-borns so I delivered them to my knitting shop, the collection point.

I was in need of inspiration some weeks ago and read about  crocheting to help victims of domestic abuse. “Can you crochet in June for Refuge? Changing a life starts with one small step. Take up the challenge and raise vital life saving funds for women and children experiencing domestic abuse.” The challenge is to crochet every day in June, sell, raffle or otherwise donate to raise funds so every evening I have been making granny squares. Here are the first set, ready to be joined and have a border added to make a pram blanket. .

Yesterday we bought some petunias for a front door pot to complement our Suffragette garden but it has been much too hot to plant today.

    I do crochet and knit in the summer. I am actually working on a temperature blanket. This is where you crochet a different row onto the blanket every day. The color corresponds with the temperature for that day. I don’t seem to crochet or knit quite as much in the summer but I still do some just about every day.
