    Why should I take part?

    Knitting can be a great way to relax and do something enjoyable, plus joining this challenge will connect you with an amazing community of people. Many have experiences with arthritis and they all love knitting!

    What’s more, your fundraising will help to ensure that, no one has to tolerate the pain, fatigue and isolation of arthritis alone.

    How are we doing here?

    Do sign up to let us know if you have joined the Facebook challenge, it would be great to know how many of us can join this challenge. For everyone who isn't a fan of Facebook lets use the comments to keep ourselves going with this challenge. I've just clicked on the just giving link and it looks quite easy to use, I will add in the comments that I'm in the March knitting challenge for the Online Community then maybe we can find out how much we raise

    I've not done any knitting for years, except for helping my grandchildren to do get started!

    I'm planning to either make a scarf and see if I can get sponsored for every inch (gave away my age there) 😉 or maybe every 2.5 cm, or a series of squares that will hopefully all end up the same size and ask for donations per square.

    Knitters - which do you think would be best?
