Knit a Brick or 'knit one save one'


An ad in a newspaper that is finally worth printing. I was reading the Queensland Courier Mail here last week when I saw an ad with the heading 'knit one save one' to help save children in need around the world.

I went to their web site and found the following info on
'knit one save one'.
It's run by the Save the Children
organization and you can go to their web site or read about 'knit one save one' below.

As I have way to much spare time sitting in my taxi waiting for my next fare I have de
cided to pick up the needles and have a go while I'm doing all this waiting and as I haven't knitted a thing since I was about ten years old its been a slow process plus I needed to teach my self how to knit again.

Here (photo above) is my progress so far and yes it's full of dropped stitches and mistakes but
you go to start somewhere and I'm sure I'll improve over time.

If anyone reading this decides to take up the knitting of squares I love to see (and hear)how you go and maybe I could keep track of your progress with regular posts on my blog.


Knit One Save One

Just by knitting a 20cm square you can help to save a life. Get your friends and loved ones in on it too and help us piece together warm blankets for children in countries that need a helping hand. A 20cm knitted square is all we ask.
Actually, we need 80,000 squares – enough to make 5,000 blankets to go to countries like Australia, Cambodia and India.

Follow the progress of our Knit One Save One project on our blog. You can leave us a message, ask us a question, share your knitting tips and sign up to recieve updates as our tally progresses. Click here to see how the Knitters of Australia are making a difference.
