Hello all you charity knitters. We are currently knitting cushions for all Heart Patients. When you have open heart surgery the breast bone is cut and can take up to six months to heal, so we are knitting a cushion that serves several purposes.
1. You can hold it up to your chest when you need to cough and it gives you some support.
2. When you are out of hospital you can wear it between yourself and the seatbelt of the car for comfort and….
3. Last but not least it is just something to cuddle when you are feeling a bit blue.
Every year in Belfast they perfom 1000 open heart operations and 100 of those are children so if you would like to contribute we need cushions that are about the size of an A4 sheet of paper and can be knit, crocheted or sewn. Any colour and any design. Plain or fancy just let your imagination run wild.
Thanks again all my knitters out there x
