Just a quick post today to introduce a lovely organisation called SIBOL which is an abbreviation for Sunshine International Blankets of Love. It is run by the tireless Sue who is really good at drumming up support from knitters and crocheters. The completed blankets and shawls are dropped off at care homes in the UK and we have recently started to make some smaller items such as hats, gloves and scarves to give to the residents as C******** gifts.
Sue always lets you know when your items have arrived and also when they have been delivered to the homes. It is so satisfying to see a blanket that you made actually in situ in its new home.
For people who use Ravelry, there is a friendly SIBOL group here.
