Another busy month knitting for the NSW Womens Refuge Centre and sorting all the donations that have been arriving from the K4C group. The final total is 568 items and that is probably a record. A wonderful generosity of spirit from all the people who made items for this charity including quilts, rugs, toys, ponchos, scarves, beanies, gloves, slippers and children’s jumpers.

This is a woman’s cape/poncho that I adapted from a Bernat top down pattern using 350gms x Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply in denim. Used 6mm circular needles and made the garment longer with a finished length of 46 cms. Also made some children’s vests and ponchos and a collection of teddies and dolls to add to the donation.
