Hi!! I wrote a blog post the other day about the manchester attack and then swiftly deleted it, it was about how my daughter was at the awful Manchester event on Monday, as soon as I posted it I felt guilty, for being so upset that she had been caught up in it, it was non crochet related, and some May of read and thought ‘come on! She got out safely!’ And she did, no injuries just emotional.  We were lucky and I think I needed to remind myself of that, anyhoo…..

So! I read on instagram today that our beautiful crochet/knit community are getting together and doing what we do best during times like these and we are creating either through knit or crochet a heart for Manchester.  Please see where to send below

Like Beth says it will never make it all ok but it’s a way we can show an act of kindness from all over the world, so can I ask that my lovely followers do the same?  I’ll be making a few today and getting them in the post too.  If your looking for an easy and quick heart pattern there’s one for a valentine heart garland on my patterns page, it’s nice and easy.


Happy hooking xx

    Please don’t feel guilty for wanting to post about how upset you were. You had every right to be upset. So glad she got out safely. It was still traumatizing for you and for her. It’s wonderful you found a way to put a little goodness back in the the world through something you love. Many hugs.โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

    Don’t ever feel guilty for your loved ones being safe. I read your original post and could not even imagine the fear and panic that you must have felt. Thank goodness she was able to get out. I’ve seen the posts for the hearts and it never ceases to amaze me how in the face of the horrible, so many many people come together to fight the hate with so much love. (((hugs)))

    I read that original post and was blown away by the insight it showed me into how all the families of those involved must have initially felt. Thank you for sharing and I’m glad your daughter is safe! Also I will try to participate in this #lovewins!

    I love the heart idea.. and thank goodness everything is safe for you and your family.. I had a chance to visit Manchester in 2012 and I know how welcoming the people are.. so we are also very shocked to hear this has happened…

    Nevertheless, we are wondering if there is a dateline to contribute to the crocheted hearts?
