Thank you Knit Aiders!

We were seriously blown away by our most recent collection, and wanted to send you all a big thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We now get so many donations that it is impossible for us to contact everyone individually to thank them, but please know that we read every letter and value every individual piece that is sent to us.
2016 has been a strange year and quite often we have both felt a little worn down by events around the world. However, when we go to our little storage space and open all of your amazing donations, it reminds us that there is kindness and love in the world, and that we can make a huge difference when we all work together. Thank you all for reminding us that there is always hope.

 

New collection deadline

We have managed to pack up and ship out the majority of your donations from November, so we can now start collecting again. The new deadline is the 20th of December and we are collecting:

  • Beanies + Snoods + Gloves (As Winter Warmer sets or individually)
  • Entire blankets (please make sure all ends are sewn in and please don't send in individual squares)
  • Hot water bottle covers (Including a hot water bottle)
  • Hooded cowls for children – We have a new fundraising pattern on our website for the Little Snug Riding Hood
We have been told by our colleagues in the camps that hot water bottles are life savers in the winter. Helen from Curious Handmade has very generously offered her own pattern for free to all Knit Aiders. Just use the code KNITAID at the check out of her Ravelry store. Thank you Helen!

New 8mm knitting needles

We are in love with our beautiful new 8mm knitting needles. We have been busily knitting up our Christmas gifts with these and they knit like a dream! They would make the perfect present for the knitter in your life, or as a treat for yourself! Everything we sell on our online store helps us to carry on the important work that we do, so not only are you getting a special pair of needles, but also helping us to continue with Knit Aid.

Knit Aid Shop

Your donations are now en-route!

Our latest batch of donations, including our first round of Winter Warmer packs, are now on their way to Greece where they will be handed out to people facing a cold winter in camps. You all took the time, money and effort to buy yarn, knit entire gift sets or blankets, print and write personal messages, package them up, go to the post office and send them in to us, and we are so grateful for every stitch that we receive.

Thank you, Knit Aiders!
From Shahnaz and Karen
