The blankets (and other knitted things) are needed in Africa for the "fish and chip babies", These are babies who are being sent home wrapped in newspaper as there are no clothes for them. Charities are putting together packs of jumpers, cardigans, hats and blankets for mothers to be who attend anti-natal clinics, And the women in our village have been knitting like mad for them! So I have joined in with my crochet hook and have started a blanket.
I sat this evening watching "World's Strictest Parents" and crocheted these two squares, to be made in to a blanket. I had forgotten how relaxing crocheting is. I am aiming to do one an evening for the next few nights so I don't over whelm my self trying to to many!
When I got home from my friends, washing up had to be done. Puddle asked if he could help me so I set him up with a mixing bowl of water, some dirty cutlery and a tray. He happily washed the cutlery with a duck scrubbing brush for 10 minutes or so before getting board.
