1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Knitting for Hospitals etc on: February 21, 2007 05:09:15 PM
Many of the sites on the net have suggestions of  great things to knit for charity, but a lot of them don't really apply to NZ conditions, or are for overseas charities which would involve horrendous postage costs.

Does anyone know of NZ charities that need knitted articles?  Our local old folks home is swamped in afghans, and I already supply the local school with slippers for the junior classes in the winter, so I'm looking for some different ideas.

Particularly, do hospitals here take things for prem babies? Or stoma covers, or other things like that?  Any suggestions?
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Canada Bound on: April 05, 2006 02:18:11 PM
I have no idea whether I am in the right thread, but this is definitely 'miscellaneous'

My daughter (28) is moving to Canada.  To a northern, backwoods part of Canada.

What sort of things might be useful for me to make for her to take with her?  I can knit & sew Ok.

I am wondering about useful 'travelling' bags/tidies/organisers, or if any Canadian readers could give me suggestions of things useful way up there, bearing in mind she cannot take anything big or heavy!

  I live in New Zealand, so this is definitely W-A-Y up there from here!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Oddball cardigans on: May 25, 2005 11:41:47 PM




I have spent all afternoon trying to figure out how to put my picture on the site, and then when I at last managed that I went to preview my message and somehow the computer ate it! (sigh) So here I go on attempt umpteen and ten to post my first proper message on this site. Computer literate I am not!

I call these 'Oddball 'Cardigans(sweaters?jackets?) because they are made with the odd balls I get at a reduced price from the end-of-line baskets in wool shops.  Also these garments seem a little oddball to me because I am from a generation in which little babies wore only white, pale blue, pale pink or pale yellow!

I used this pattern

http://www.minidata.co.nz/major/freepatt/patt04.htm which is one I really like  because it is very quick & easy to knit up, and has no seams, so less sewing up to do.

Anyway...here goes AT LAST with this post (I hope it works!)  I still have not managed to get the links to underline, I'm sorry.

(edited by melidomi to fix links one last time Smiley  )
