Monthly Knitting Group
A group from both St Leonard’s and St Mary’s meet each month in Newbyres Nursing Home, Gorebridge where we encourage one another in the production of all things knitted. to date we have knitted Footermuffs, Poppies, Baby hats and Comfort Teddies.
Our Group have completed over 1000 poppies to produce 2 Poppy falls to commemorate the Armistice of the first world war. These can be seen in both churches as per these pictures.
Due to the Corona Virus outbreak this along with other activities are currently suspended for the foreseeable. Please do continue knitting and we will pass everything on when its safe to do so.
Our current projects are baby hats, cardis, blankets for the Simpsons or Comfort Teddies, or squares to make into twiddle blankets. After last weeks visit from The Mission to Seafarers we are adding to our list hats, balaclavas, mittens etc for them. If you need a pattern or wish to come and have a look at the yarn currently in the garage please do speak to Fiona!
All funds raised are to help rebuild our hall. Look out for updates to the process here.
