Do you like a glass of wine served with your wool? You can be part of a great knitting initiative that's going to kick off soon in the Mother City, to produce 1 000 blankets for orphaned babies. On 14 May 2012, maternity brand Me-a-Mama launched this very worthy charity drive, with a clever idea to get locals involved in the project. Whether you're a keen knitter or have looped the occasional stitch, they're inviting anyone to join in and lend a hand at some of the city's trendiest spots. This makes it less of a task and more of a social event, where you can enjoy a glass of wine amongst friends, while still making a significant contribution to the cause. If you'd like to join in diarise the below dates and be sure to pop in:
- 12 June 2012: Head to Knead Bakery on Kloof Street at 6:30pm for an hour of wine, tapas and nocturnal knitting.
- 3 July 2012: Visit the Alexander Bar at 37 Strand Street, for an hour of fun and nocturnal knitting.
