Story

Thanks for popping by our Do You Mind if I Knit Blanket page. 

THIS BLANKET GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED BUT IF YOU STILL WANT TO DONATE PLEASE DO FEEL FREE.  THE CHARITY WILL BE VERY GRATEFUL FOR EVERY £ RAISED I AM SURE.

Here you will be able to take part in the charity draw to be in with the chance of winning this gorgeous crochet blanket.  All the money raised from the draw will be going to the fantastic charity the Mental Health Foundation.

With every £2 donation you will have a chance to win the blanket.  So if you donated £4 you get two entries and so on.  Please donate in multiples of £2, each £2 will give you an entry.

Vanessa Cabban inspired so many through her warm and colourful blog Do You Mind if I Knit? and the online friendships that grew from this. 

For the past four months 45 members of the online creative community has been brought together by crocheting squares for this beautiful blanket. 

This project came about in response to the respect the online community has for Vanessa and their shock at her death in December 2014. After a memorial on Instagram the idea to make a blanket grew. 

The Do You Mind if I Knit? Blanket was designed by Lisa Smith-Clare using Vanessa's signature colours. Within two days she had allocated all of the 168 squares needed and had to enlarge the blanket by another 42 squares to ensure further requests to be part of this wonderful tribute were possible. 

The makers, artists and readers of Vanessa's blog, from all over the UK, who have created squares for this blanket were all touched by her in some way,  be it through her art, her magical illustrated children's books or her vibrant blog. 

This draw will close on 1 June 2015 at 5 pm.  The lovely Planet Penny has kindly offered to pay for postage worldwide, so where-ever you live you are welcome to join in the fun.  The blanket measures approximately 60" x 56".

Thank you for joining in this fundraising event.
