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.
Next Meeting is 10am on the 12th September at Newbyres and our current projects are baby hats for the Simpsons or Comfort Teddies. 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!
