Knit One, Save One

As you know I like to knit. It can sometimes be hard to find the motivation to knit when the mercury is hovering at 30C but I think I've found my inspiration. 'Save the Children' was founded in 1919 by an English woman with the wonderful name of Eglantyne Webb. Their aim is to support children's rights throughout the world by providing both long and short-term relief to aid education, health and protection. This year 'Save the Children Australia' has launched the Knit One, Save One project to try and collect 80,000 knitted squares to make into blankets for children in Australia, India and Cambodia. So far they have collected over 17,000 but that still leaves a lot of squares to knit!
