Eat-Weigh-Crochet

Karen Warne is holding a fundraising raffle for a crochet blanket.

Blanket“The creation of this blanket has been inspired by two different
journeys. The idea came from thinking of a way to motivate and personalise my own weight loss journey whilst raising money for a worthwhile charity.

I've always loved crochet so the rules are, for every half pound lost I get to crochet a row, 2 rows form a stripe, therefore every stripe equals one pound lost.  To date (Feb 2018) I have crocheted 70 stripes (70lbs lost), leaving me a further 22lbs to go in order to complete the blanket. 

My inspiration came from my daughters’ own personal journey who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2015, aged 23 years.”
