Exclusive Stitch London patterns to kick the c**p out of cancer
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on September 6, 2010
Cancer is utterly rubbish. It is a fiendish foe that deserves jabbing with our DPNs until it gives up and goes away. Fancy helping us vanquish cancer by supporting those fine folks fighting it and treating yourself to one of three fabulous knitting patterns?
Team Raging Wool are a six-person team of knitters (and those sympathetic to the woolly cause) whose mission is to kick the tar out of Cancer by trekking 20 miles across London in one night for Maggie’s Centre Night Hike on 17 September.
To help team Raging Wool reach their target of £1200 they’re offering three patterns for which they invite you to donate and download.
Another reason to donate: Stitch London are also going to teach a ‘Stitch a Squid’ workshop at Maggie’s Centre later in the month. Knitting is the perfect way to fill hospital time and time spent in waiting rooms, as well as being hugely therapeutic (as you all know). Help us to help them.
