Knitting

If you love knitting, we'd really welcome your help in knitting a worry doll or soft ball for the children we're working with. 

We also need soft balls of various sizes from those that can be picked up by tiny hands to those that teenagers can squeeze and throw, single coloured, multi coloured….the choice is yours.

What are worry dolls?

The worry dolls, originally from Guatemala are used by children to tell their worries to. Traditionally, the children would tell the doll their worries as they were going to bed, place the dolls under their pillows, and by morning the dolls have gifted them with the wisdom and knowledge to eliminate the worries.

We would love to be able to give all the children and young people we work with a worry doll to use both during and after support from Haven. 

Thank you very much to all our very busy knitters
