In the UK we have a blood transfusion service that takes blood from donors to use where needed in emergencies and during operations.
This is a vital service and they are always looking for new volunteers to donate blood.

And they’re asking for people like us to knit blood drops of varying sizes to form part of the national campaign. Read more of “Knitting to save lives…”→

The pattern was JB058 from James Brett and the yarn is James Brett Woodlander Double Knitting.
