Age UK Warm Home


Age UK are asking people to support their winter campaign for warmer homes by knitting a house for Cold Homes Week (2-6 February 2015). You can read more about the week of action by clicking on this link - Knit a Warm Home for Age UK.

I was very pleased to be invited to participate with the design of the knitting pattern. The inspiration was from the 'croft house' design and it has been reworked specially for Age UK. They have produced a leaflet with information about the campaign, the knitting pattern, how to participate and the chance to win a Husqvarna Viking E20 sewing machine. Leaflet available from their website - click here

There is a Ravelry page for the Age UK Warm Home pattern if you would like to share your finished projects and images. Click here

The campaign was launched at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace in London on 8-12th October 2014. I wasn't able to attend the event, though, it looks like it was a great success and the girls on the stand were very busy. Here are a few photos courtesy of Age UK Campaigns Twitter feed...
