OMG as the kids say!!! I told the woman in the shop that I didn’t have a clue what to do with it but I JUST HAD TO HAVE IT . Its a beast!!!!
As you can see I tried with it. I think I made a fishing net.
While there the lady in the shop was explaining that she was involved in a fundraising activity for cancer research uk. A group of gals were trying to get people to knit 2832 scarves, enough to go around the city walls of York, these will then be auctioned or sold in the wool shop. I went and met the ladies doing just that and what a lovely bunch. Needless to say I have started a scarf and if any of you feel that its something you could squeeze into your day then I’d love it if we could do this together. Here is the blurb…
Hi Knit a scarf and "Join in the fight for women's survival" We need 2832 scarves ready to wrap around the 2.5miles of the York wall by Sunday 21st November 2010. Help by knitting a scarf (15cm by 150cm long) in any shade of pink or colour or design. The scarves will then be sold to raise money for Cancer research UK's research into breast cancer. Or you can donate money on this page to help the RAW Team to achieve their target We will be taking our knitting around the world with us including Mount Snowdon, India and around the world so come on can you help me! Yes you can! Thank you so much Love and hugs Rachel Speight RAW Team xxxxxxThey do need to be dropped off at The wool shop Ramshambles and I can see that being a logistical prob. Let me know if you want to and I will work something out. It would be an excellent task for a bored child during the hols…. just a thought….
