I’ve been thinking about crocheting for charity a little while ago but I couldn’t find an interesting organization for which I would really do it. And then I saw a little advertising in the Veritas shop: crocheting little octopus for premature babies. I guess this might be an excellent chance to do some charity and having fun crocheting at the same time! And knowing that one of the ambassadors is active at the local hospital in town makes it even easier.
This project named Små bläckfiskar started all in Denmark. A Danish woman made a squid for her premature baby and put it in the incubator close to the baby. It made the baby calm down and feel more eased. That’s how this wonderful project came over to Sweden, the Netherlands and even Belgium.
There is a webpage in Dutch with information about the project, patterns, strict requierments, ambassador’s list,.. at http://kleine-inktvisjes.eu/.
