A Scarf for Cancer
Macmillan Cancer Support have been knitting for cancer since last November, and in the end of March the Knit-Bot stitched the last personalized stitch. The campaign is for those suffering from cancer and having problems paying their energy bills.

The campaign’s “Knit-Bot” turns text into knitting patterns, and while the campaign was still active you could go to the site and tell it what ‘makes you feel warm’ – of which contributers submitted such things as “homemade lentil soup” or “a great big hug.”
