A good time to give...

I have made progress into "Anne of Ingleside", though my knitting has slowed down due to other commitments (read- work :-P)

I've recently learned of a charity knitting project that may well fit into the "Anne" theme; a sweet lady at Junie Moon is heading up a group knitting bandages for leprosy patients in Africa & Vietnam, which will be sent off in late January.

My first thought was about the later books, when the Great War was looming large in the lives of everyone, the women would have banded together to make bandages & socks, weaving prayers & protection into every stitch.

Whether for the knitalong or just to give back, drop by & consider joining in.
