Hello all and calling all knitters or would be knitters!

Previously we talked about holding a knitathon where people could be sponsored to knit baby hats (or other items such as comfort squares) with the sponsorship going to Octavia's Trust and the knitted items donated to a local neonatal ward. We think it could be quite fun as people could get together in groups and it is something that virtually anyone can do regardless of age or fitness unlike a sporting event and they can do it anywhere in the world.I am going to be doing this and I hardly knit at all yet, so I am going to set myself a month to learn/practice then do the knitathon in August hopefully. It would be really great if others wanted to do their own knitathons (it does not have to be in August, but it would be great if we could do them around about the same time) If anyone is interested in doing their own knitathon we would love to hear from you. You can get in contact via our website  or email
