KNIT Together

Posted on: July 24th, 2011 by admin

Our Knit Together group meets every two weeks in St Annes Library, 10.00 am – 12.00 pm. Both experienced and novice knitters are welcome.

If you enjoy knitting and nattering why not come and join us; or maybe you need a bit of emotional support when it comes to decreasing, increasing or turning a heel!

As well as doing their own knitting, members of the group also undertake various charitable projects. These have included knitting soft woollen toys, called ‘Izzy’ dolls, for children who are victims of war, HIV babies, orphans and those who suffer from plain want. Another project saw the group knitting miniature bobble hats for Age UK, who forwarded them to a juice company for their Christmas promotion. The company paid Age UK for their efforts.
