knitting

The knitting group meets in the Methodist Hall every Monday afternoon between 2.30 pm and 4.00 pm.  This is a very informal group who knit squares or other much needed items, for refugees. We also enjoy a chat and a cup of tea. If you would prefer not to knit, but would rather sew squares together, that too would be very welcome. We are always grateful for double knitting wool, of any colour other than white, and size 8 needles.  Drop in and see what we do and just sit and have a cup of tea with us!
