Billie Blankets...............

I have been reading about a number of charity projects across blogland and I want to join in and make a small crochet blanket. Lucy over at Attic 24 has made two beautiful blankets for a Comic Relief  charity auction. Knitstitchsew has joined in with woolyhugs  and is planning to make a Billie blanket.

I have checked out my stash and have signed up to make a little Billie blanket, the project is in memory of a little girl who died off Leukaemia. The blankets will be sent to children suffering from cancer in low and middle income countries. In these countries the overall chance of survival can be under 10% compared to around 80% in high income countries such as ours.The first batch of Billie’s Blankets will be taken to children in Malawi and Bangladesh.

After sorting out some lovely cotton yarn in soft baby pastel colours I have re read the brief and the blankets have to be made in acrylic yarn for easy washing and aftercare ...............I will need to make a quick trip to a yarn shop.

Will keep you posted on my progress.
