Monkton Farleigh Knit & Natter Group has just sent 3 large blankets and a number of warm hats to Knit Aid who are taking a large consignment of such gifts out to Syrian refugees in Greece. The group is going to continue to knit gifts through the year to send. “We have so much and they have nothing” is the view of all the knitters. If anyone wants to contribute, squares of good, dark-coloured, yarn 8″ x 8″ are needed for the blankets plus hats, gloves, wrist warmers and socks for adults and children – again, mostly dark colours so they are practical.
All knitters and handcrafters are welcome to join the group which meets in the village hall on Wednesday mornings in term time, 10 – 12 noon. Beginners or experts – come and join us. There’s lots of chat, help with difficult patterns and very good coffee – all for £1.50 a week!
