An old friend, Gilly, recently let me know about a lovely charity called Makes 4 Jake who are organizing a Crochet and Knitting Butterfly Campaign.
I had some baby soft Drops Alpaca (DK) yarn in some pastel colours that I was using to make a blanket but then I ran out of steam… it’s a long story… anyway I thought this would be ideal for the project.
If you’re interested in helping Makes 4 Jake then you should email Rachel@makes4jake.com for the postal address. The aim is to make at least 1000 as part of the 2015 Butterfly Awards – a national event for babyloss. It also enables the charity to provide butterflies for memory boxes for bereaved parents and acknowledgement packs for miscarriage.
I hope they will bring even a small smile to the faces of the recipients.
