I knitted some beanies and scarves for a church group who was going to China in 2008 and it was lovely to see the knitted items being worn. The little boy's face is adorable - perhaps the beanie is little scratchy?
Since I had heaps of left over yarn, I knitted squares to make blankets for the Save the Children Knit One Save One campaign in 2010. They were aiming for 80,000 knitted squares but received 153, 438 squares which is an amazing effort!My knitted squares didn't always turn out square, so I'll stick to knitting beanies again this year. The pattern I follow is really easy, and yes, I will knit other colours, not just pink (but it is my favourite colour!) To date I've knitted six beanies but as you can see, there is plenty of yarn in the basket! To support Australian businesses, I buy yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills who supply fantastic quality yarns at very reasonable prices.
