Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

On the road again.....

Greenfields Africa has a truck leaving the UK and heading for Kenya and Uganda  in about 3 weeks time.  It will be bringing much needed clothing and blankets to families who can't afford them.  Here's my little contribution: 8 hats and a baby jumper.  Bright colours are positively welcomed in these countries and, as the nights can be very cold, the mothers like to put jumpers and cardigans on their babies.

I posted these off today.  I normally wait until I have enough items to fill a box.  But that would have meant keeping these here until maybe next year.  I'd rather they were used as soon as possible.

Keep on trucking..............


  1. it's a lovely little collection Una, I wish I was as organised, I have stuff all over the place that needs sorting I must try to get it off in time. :)

  2. Hi Una, they are to cute! The little bitty blue one is so adorable!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. So sweet, I love the bright colours too. What a lovely thing to spend your knitting time doing.

  4. Oh I'm so glad you alerted me to the fact that a shipment is going out. I'll send them my 6 months worth of items rather than wait until the end of the year. Thanks!

    1. I think the truck leaves on August 21st. I rushed mine off because I don't know how often they go there.
