Josephine also had a finish. She crocheted this hooded jacket for her niece. The colours are lovely and she plans to set it off with a ribbon edging round the hood.
For those of you who wanted to know I have now collected 146 squares in the last few weeks. We sent away 48 a few weeks ago which brings our total to 194. Not bad going. The photo above is of the 148 all together.
Most of you will have received and email with a plea from Val. Her church are going over to Africa to do some building. They are wanting to take 300 teddy bears with them. If anyone would like to knit a bear rather than square it would be much appreciated. The pattern is simple so that every child gets the same. Only changes you can make to it is the colours (although preferably not white). The deadline is the same as the squares, July. Even if you only knit one bear it would be greatly appreciated. I will add some links to the website and the pattern under here (there is even a crochet pattern). I'll also be bringing along a print out on Tuesday.
