Joining the Cranford club
Feb 28, 2011
Knitting a pair of Cranfords - horseshoe lace fingerless mitts inspired by the BBC series based on Elizabeth Gaskell's book - has become a sort of badge of honour for supporters of the Medecins Sans Frontieres p/hop project.
P/hop or pennies per hour of pleasure is a fundraising scheme (in fact the Justgiving.com Awards' creative fundraising project of the year) where you can download knitting patterns and donate to MSF based on what value you put on the patterns and your experience. Knitting to bring much needed help to people in need round the world - what could be better.
As a p/hop fan and very occasional helper, Cranfords were a must do and here they are - allbeit adapted.
