Some of the work that I knit is destined for solidarity knitting. Some of the projects in which I have participated have been very gratifying. As sharing is part of success, here are some of the solidarity projects in which I have collaborated.
In the “Seas of Solidarity” campaign organized by the IAIA Association, I knitted a beautiful alpaca blanket with circles that resembled the blue and white bubbles that the sea produces with the waves. I had the satisfaction of exhibiting my blanket at the Museum del Traje in Madrid.
I also knitted a honeycomb blanket for IAIA, an association that is very active in solidarity work, for the “Save the Bees” campaign. We also knitted small cotton blankets for premature babies to cover their defenseless little bodies. We also participate in workshops to raise awareness among children in schools about the importance of bees in the balance of our ecosystem, knitting and making bees out of wool.
For Red Madre, an association that helps expectant mothers at risk of exclusion, I have knitted some beautiful outfits for the newborns.
At Cáritas Santa María del Bosque, to contribute to the charity markets which are organised periodically, I knit for babies to raise funds.
At the Hospital La Paz in Madrid we do wool and yarn workshops with the children in the hospital to make their stay more pleasant and bearable.
