This is a project using british wool with the intention of giving a present of a cushion to participating athletes attending and taking part in the Olympic Games in London. You can make up your own design, download a free pattern from or www.blacker, or knit a cushion fron any pattern you wish. for details go to either of these sites and you will get all the information you require. This is a great project for anyone who would like to be involved in the games but can't be there in person.

hi Jacey, if you have any queries the staff at have been very helpful to me. I sent a cushion at the weekend and got a nice email to tell me it had arrived. I sent it unstuffed as i didn't have the required wool stuffing to meet the spscifications required for this project. You can also contact them and may be able to get wool free.
