knitting for charity

a sister at our homeschooling group came up with the idea of knitting blankets for charity. many of us thought it was a brilliant idea and decided we'de all get together and knit seperate square's (the quantity doesn't matter, as many as you can do), then we'd put all the squares together and we'de have a blanket! sounds quite straight forward doesn't it? it wasn't! first we had to decide what kind of charty we wanted it to go to, then there was the factor of whether it would get to the destination or not, so after a lot of toing and froing the sisters came up with this charity do check it out!

my daughter has started knitting her square. after a long day, a lot of explaining, showing and showing again, she finally got the hang of it! and now theres no stopping her mashallah. she loves the fact that she's doing something she enjoys so much but getting rewards for it aswell, as it's for charity.

please let me know if anyone wants to contribute then i can give you more details, like the size of the square etc.
