First of all may I welcome anyone new visiting our 'SIBOL' Blog today and over the last few days. It's so nice that you are coming across us. There is always something new to see on here and I do hope you will scroll down on previous posts too.
May I say before we go any further there is no need to wrap the 'Christmas Gifts' in Christmas wrapping paper. Although I said they will be 'Gifts', the Homes will do this as they do our Blankets for Christmas. So I wouldn't want you to go to that added expense. If you are new to SIBOL I have been asking if anyone would like to make small warm items such as Bed Socks, Bed Jackets, Crocheted or Knitted Slippers, Warm Hats Knitted or Crocheted, Scarves, Fingerless Gloves, Wrist Warmers etc., anything like that for an Elderly person to open on Christmas Day. The Residents in Homes do not receive many Gifts and I just thought it would be something new we could try as a Group this Christmas. Thank you.
I would like to thank Kianie this morning for sending in a Blanket for our Elderly Residents. I just love the colour combinations in this one and the Squares are delightful too! A great sized Blanket this one will give a lot of comfort to someone Elderly. It's called 'Paint the Town Red!'. A wonderful piece of work and I love the name too! Thank you so much Kianie!
I would also like to thank Sally very much indeed for assembling Knitted Squares from our 90 year old Irene. She has made a couple of beautiful Shawls which will be very useful and also some Sunshine Blankets. I would also like to thank jenn1feranne for sending a lovely purple Knitted Shawl too. We certainly are getting some lovely work arriving.
First of all let's take a look at the Shawls from Irene and Sally.
A pretty pastel one and now a shocking pink one!
