Knit for change baby!

So I'm a massive slacker on the graffiti knit front and here I am posting about something other than graffiti knitting but it's just as important! I promise!

Unicef need 1,400 20 x 20cm squares for a campaign they are running to raise awareness about HIV and in particular, transmission from mothers to children.

These squares will be assembled in to 25 baby blankets and presented to motherish members of parliament on May 10th and then sent off to Papua New Guinea for babies to cuddle in to.

So, if you can knit or crochet - get going! We need as many 20 x 20cm squares as you can churn out by May 1st. If you can't then rope in anyone else that you can... or check out the Unite for Mothers website to see of other ways you can help.

Thanks!
