On Sunday 24 June we shall be opening our tiny cottage garden to the public to raise money for the Nystagmus Network, a charity very close to our hearts. There may be some yarn bombing – there will definitely be cakes!

Everyone welcome!

Wobbly Wednesday is coming soon

Wobbly Wednesday

Wobbly Wednesday 4 November 2015

handmadebysoo is knitting lots of wobbly jelly babies using the pattern from¬†Jean Greenhowe’s Little Gift Dolls to help raise awareness of nystagmus ahead of Wobbly Wednesday on 4 November.

Nystagmus, also known as Wobbly Eyes, is a complex condition where the eyes move involuntarily. This makes it harder to see. Few people with nystagmus drive and most face difficulties in everyday life.

Every year hundreds of children are born with nystagmus, often with no known family history. Adults can develop nystagmus too, due to accidents or illnesses like stroke or MS.

Nystagmus Network funds research into nystagmus, provides information and support, raises awareness and educates people about the daily impact of nystagmus.
