My creative space...

Guardian Pharmacy have been running the Guardian Angel Knitting Program for twelve years. They donate knitted and crocheted garments to a different charity each year. Last year, I crocheted a scarf. I have just started to knit a scarf to donate this year. 

This year, the Guardian Angels garments and blankets will be donated to Variety, The Children's Charity. A lovely person from my old work will be collecting the knitted and crocheted goods from a group of us and will be donating them by the end of August. 

Have you been making anything for charity lately? I find that it brings a sense of well-being,  knowing that my handy work will bring a smile to someone's face. Someone that I will never meet.  

Best wishes to everyone out there that needs help at the moment. Keep your spirits high.

  1. No I'm not but you have inspired me to check out the link and start my own project. I love this idea, thanks for reminding me! xo

  2. I'm visiting my mum next week and we are going to knit some mice for a cat charity! They need them because in the summer they have more kittens but less people taking them home as people are away on holiday. I love knitting and using to do something good just adds to the enjoyment for me!

  3. Very pleased to hear that I have inspired you Beck and that you are going to check out the link.

    Also excited to hear about the knitting mice project for a cat charity - I would like to hear more about it. I love cats and it sounds like a wonderful cause!

    Best wishes to you both, Ames xo

  4. This is such an inspirational and a great idea. It must be such a good feeling to think about the person who will wear it while you are knitting!
