Olof Witty Knitters

We finally named our charity knitting group. Vanessa, one of the knitters, came up with the name. Olof stands for Our Lady of Lausanne. I crammed most of this beautiful work into a large shoe box! It is going to explode when Dianne, the woman who runs the knitters' charity in Turkey, LILY, opens it!!!! LILY stands for Love in the Language of Yarn. Dianne, a British woman who lives in Turkey, and her friends, sew the squares into blankets for children, and she hires a driver to take all of the blankets, clothing, and other donations to Syrian refugee camps in Turkey. She also started a bakery near a Syrian refugee camp and delivers bread every day. You can see more about her wonderful work on the LILY facebook page.
