As you probably already know, I like making blankets.......however, my house and family have been over-blanketed and don't want any more

So I was very interested when a member of our local knitting group who is very heavily involved with the local food bank, discussed the fact that they also try to supply items to keep their clients warm - this can be blankets for children to wrap themselves into while they do their homework in homes where they cannot afford to pay for heating or even coats, hats, scarves and blankets for clients that are having to live IN TENTS in January/February.

Here is the 1st of many blankets - it's called a Happy blanket and I hope that it helps someone less fortunate than ourselves.
It was fun to make but I shall have to try to block it to get the different sections matching.
