Karen Warne is holding a fundraising raffle for a crochet 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 (Nov, 2016) I have crocheted 47 stripes (47lbs lost), since starting in May 2016. My aim is to lose a further 45lbs by spring/summer 2017 in order to complete the blanket.
My inspiration came from my daughters’ own personal journey who last year was diagnosed with a brain tumour, aged 24 years”.
