Knit and Natter Friday #8.2

This afternoon it was our weekly Knit and Natter Group at Alnwick Medical Group, which runs from 2.30pm to 4pm on Fridays, in the Lower Building.

Once again, the members have made a beautiful selection of charity knits , but today we were focussing on some of the blankets made by our group. All of those in the picture are made of small squares sewn together. Whether these are knitted or crocheted (like the pretty pink and white one) , it’s a great way to get started if you are learning for the first time, with help on hand if you need some support

A lady recently brought a partly completed blanket into the surgery. She can no longer knit so couldn’t finish it. One of our members has now completed it (the lovely leaf design at the bottom of this picture). Haven’t they both done a great job?

Have you ever given someone else a project to finish, or completed one for someone else?


I live in Northumberland, within sight of the sea and spend my time knitting, crocheting, sewing and trying my hand at different crafts. There's usually a story to share about the things I make.

    1. I’ve just offered to finish a sock (the second of a pair) for a friend who has fallen out with double pointed needles – I’m going to try it on little circular sock needles


    1. It was very kind of you to help her out like that. How did you feel about giving your project to someone else to finish though? I find it hard enough giving away things I’ve made as gifts, especially larger items (I get really attached to them – they are like a part of me)- taking photos has helped. Before I started the blog I used a “things i have made” board on Pinterest.


  1. My seventies double bedspread in crocheted squares of brown and other colours ( I was into brown at the time ) that I started making when we got engaged, became a cot blanket just in time for our first baby!
    A writer friend asked me to help with an urgent baby cardigan she got stuck on – I couldn’t sort it so just knitted a new one from scratch!
