Oxfam are asking people to knit squares for a giant baby blanket and demand world leaders meet their promises to provide decent health care for the worlds poorest people. For every mum, the day her child is born should be the happiest of her life. yet, in the world's poorest countries, many mums don't survive to look after their babies.
They are aiming for 250,000 patches, one for every mum who should have survived pregnancy in the last six months.
Once you have knitted your square, take a picture, send the square to Oxfam, and put your picture up on their flickr sit
Rosemary knitted this yellow square. It is actually the cheese for the burger she is knitting so we can't give it to Oxfam but we will knit some squares for mums tonight in front of Agatha Christie.
