Made with (and for) Joy

Blanket March 2018.jpeg

Here is our latest offering to York-based Charity 'Bundles of Joy'.  The charity exists to help support families with new-born babies by providing Moses baskets (bundles) full of the sorts of things that new families need and can't always afford - clothes, baby equipment, toiletries, nappies etc.  Here at Wydale our guests will often spend a happy half-hour knitting a square which we then turn into baby blankets to go into the Bundles of Joy.  

This one is slightly different.  We had a period of making larger squares and so we have created a full sized blanket which will go to one of the families in need - as an extra gift and treat for, perhaps, Mum or Dad.  

Every square is knitted with love and with prayers for the family whom it will end up with.  We are so grateful to all those who have been part of this project, from Bishops to youth group members.   As we were photographing it we were so struck by the many many people who have been part of blessing someone who they don't know.

There is always knitting to be done and the next blanket projects are well underway!
