Bad Blogger!!

I'm doing so much but I keep forgetting to take pictures with my camera and I also forget that I actually have a camera on my phone!
We went to a knitting handover for Samaritans Purse on Friday, we went last year and I posted some pictures so I've got some more this year. There are quite a few knitters who knit all year and we meet up usually in March to handover the garments we have made. It's usually hats, scarves, gloves, hand puppets, lots of little things to go in the shoeboxes.

Last year Samaritans Purse also took jumpers and blankets but unfortunately this year somebody somewhere! has decided they would have to pay tax on them to get it through different borders so they can't take them. We only found this out last week so I have been given nearly 200 jumpers and about 30 blankets to give to Biggin Hill Romania Group. They are in bin liners in my bedroom until they reply to my email!
Here's a photo of about half of them as we folded and counted them

I also said in my last post I would include a picture of the hats I've been knitting but again I kept forgetting to take photos! I managed to take this one, it's only about a third of them but the others were packed and gone before I remembered.
Hopefully I'll get better at this!!


  1. Not a bad blogger, I struggle to post much at the moment too. Life just kind of gets in the way - your knitting is amazing, I wish I lived close enough to come learn how.

  2. Oh, I'd gladly teach you Carol. We could have a cuppa and put the world to rights at the same time! Lol
