Patricia Bown?! But, it can be as simple as knitting squares and turning it into a blanket, or knitting some dishcloths. I loved this blog post by Rachelle of Ted and Agnes this week about her reasons for making knitted dishcloths after a stranger questioned it! Why shouldn't she make a knitted dishcloth?! look how pretty they are....!

Perhaps that stranger was unaware of the many benefits of such an activity, and that sometimes the act of making something is not because you need to, it's because you want to. One of the other amazing things that Knit for Peace do, is that they take donations of your knitted creations and send them on to folk who need them the most - items are sent to homeless shelters, hospitals and even animal shelters! Animals need to keep warm too you know! ;)
So, even if you think there is nothing you currently need to knit, but you still want to knit, why not get those needles moving and create something that can help someone else this winter?
You can download the pattern for these gorgeous little booties (above) designed by Erika Knight from the Knit for Peace website.
And here are some other lovely ideas to consider - The Purl Bee have the most loveliest of patterns and ideas such as these below, so be sure to have a peek...
oh and for anyone whose ever doubted the knitting of a dishcloth...
