'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Knit Today February 2013. 'SIBOL' is featured.

Good Afternoon everyone!

I am very pleased to be telling you that 'Knit Today' has very kindly featured our Group in their February issue.

Knit Today! February 2013. 'SIBOL is featured' Your Owl Blanket!

Click on the photo and read the article.

If you have trouble reading the article please click on the picture and it will take you over to Flickr. Go to 'Actions' then 'Sizes'. You will find it easier to read.

We are asking for Squares and if you would like to help us please Crochet or Knit 6"  (15cms) Squares. Please try and get the measurements as near to 6" as you can please. If it is just under or just over that's fine but not 7"!

We make Sunshine Blankets for the Elderly in the UK. I personally hand deliver Blankets to Nursing/Care Homes/Sheltered Accommodation. Our 'Sunshine Blankets' are so well received. There are many Elderly people in Nursing Homes etc., that do not have visitors and our Blankets are a way of letting them know that someone maybe thousands of miles away in a far off country or even in the UK is thinking of them.

We have come to the end of our Stash Squares, we have now made 338 Blankets and our stocks are very low. So why not take out your Crocheting Hook or Knitting needles and spend an hour or so each evening Knitting for the 'SIBOL' Charity!"

I am always very grateful for Squares whether there is just 'one' or '100!'.

Do you need something new to occupy you? Please think of SIBOL.

If you would prefer to make your own Blanket for 'SIBOL' I would be very happy to receive them.

All details about our Squares, Blankets and SIBOL CHALLENGES are on here.

Thanks for popping in to SIBOL and if there is anything you would like to know please mail me
