We meet on the first and third Monday of the month in the Methodist Hall from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm.  It has been brought to our attention that there is a surfeit of knitted hats. The Charity has requested that we knit blanket squares and scarves instead. Please go to ‘Read more’ to see the pattern for the blanket squares. We thank you for your continued support.

Blanket Squares
Approx 36 yards Double knitting wool per 6 inch square
1 pair size 8 or 4mm knitting needles
Tension 20 stiches and 40 rows 4 inches over garter stitch
kf&b – knit into the front and back of the same stitch (to increase by 1)

    Hi Bev, this message has just been brought to my notice on Thursday 9th March.
    I believe we have already had the pleasure of your company. We don’t teach knitting as such but can definitely show you how to knit a blanket square.
    Look forward to seeing you again. Nikki and Joy

    Hi, I was wondering what date in February 2023 you will be restarting the knitting group. Also,I was wondering if it is a group that I could ‘learn to knit’ in ? I have absolutely no prior knitting knowledge but would love to learn. Many thanks
