All done with your Christmas knitting? Knit for charity on the Southbank instead!
If you have miraculously finished knitting, purling, blocking and sewing up your Christmas gifts, why not head down to the Southbank in London, to join Knit for Peace in the gallery@oxo. They’ve set up until 24th December so you can go in and knit things to be sent to children in Afghanistan… If you don’t have time to knit, you can always donate your de-stashed yarn or needles! Thanks Ysolda for flagging this up :)
Knit for Peace is an initiative of the Charities Advisory Trust that encourages women (+men) from different, often historically hostile communities to come together informally to knit (or sew or crochet). With a shared common goal, differences in race, religion or caste are irrelevant, and individuals come together to knit peacefully.
