Today I took one to the chapel - we are still gathering our bits together for the Operation Christmas Child boxes, and we have started to knit scarves now for the 25 children who will receive our boxes. One of the ladies and I cut my £1.60 blanket into strips, cut tassles in the ends, and made 10 scarves! Just 16p a scarf - definitely money well spent. They fold up nice and small to fit into the shoeboxes, blue is a useful colour for girls as well as boys and we made ten in less than an hour - what could be better?!
Please excuse the shadows on the scarves - the light wasn't the best in the sitting room tonight!
