Knitting and crocheting for Syrian Refugees

Yesterday at my craft group 3 members gave me these knitted and crocheted scarves and stoles to be sent to Knit for Peace. They are collecting for the refugees now living in Kurdistan 1.8 million people. Last year 6000 perished from the cold. I’m adding another two stoles and a blanket I’ve made earlier. Perhaps another if I manage a lot of crochet this evening! My mother bless her is going to pay for the postage. Jennifer Welsher of Granny Greens made the three  shawls pictured above. One is a Stephen West Pattern and the lace is Freer patten.All are in the most gorgeous snuggly wool which will keep someone a bit cozier in the winter. And two lovely scarves knitted  and crocheted by two other members so the men aren’t left out.
