Knitting group create Worry Monsters to help with child therapy

Posted on: September 17th, 2019 by admin


Our knitting group has been busy making Worry Monsters. These are used to help children who have maybe suffered from abuse, neglect or other serious problems.  When a worrying or troubling thought comes into the child’s mind they can write it down, or draw a picture, and feed it to their monster – they will often be willing to tell the monster about the worry rather than ty and explain to an adult.

A therapist can get out the piece of paper on which the child has written or drawn the worry, and they can discuss it and offer reassurance and help.

Our knitters donated their Worry Monsters to carers in Blackpool.


KNIT Together sessions are held every other Friday in St Annes Library, 10.00 am –  12.00 pm. Both experienced and novice knitters are welcome.
