Our social group made a blanket over the last few months. We knitted lots of colourful squares which were sewn together to create this beautiful warm blanket. We donated it to the Ukrainian club in Edinburgh to be transported to Ukrainian refugees. We added a label so the refugee who gets it knows where it came from.
