HOPEtober Challenge

HOPEtober - a month of pic-knits!!

A third of the way into my HOPEtober - Knit Like Nanna challenge and not quite a third of the way into the blanket yet. Yikes!! 

I've been knitting like crazy - even the new picnic phase that has swept NSW this month has become more of a pic-knit craze for me. Much to the embarrassment of the kids. They tell me I even look like a nanna! 

But it's all worth it - knit one, purl one, change a life (or many!) 

The blanket is looking great and the support is spurring me on. Thanks!!

I am fundraising for a future where no child suffers from Sanfilippo Syndrome.

I'm doing a HOPEtober challenge and it's going to be tough! But it's nothing compared to the challenge facing kids with Sanfilippo.

I'm going to 'Knit Like Nanna' for the month of October and create a gorgeous cotton throw using a knitting technique I've never tried before. A whole blanket in one month!!! 

Every dollar raised will drive cutting-edge research projects aimed at halting disease progression, reversing the damage caused by the condition, and improving the quality of life for children with Sanfilippo. 

All donations over AU $2 are fully tax deductible.

Thanks so much for your support

Thank you to my Sponsors
