Here are this week’s completed pieces and work in progress at Alnwick Medical Group‘s Knit and Natter Group. From the left: my sock (the dark coloured item); a blanket square in shades of blue; a couple of tiny baby hats in lemon; peach-coloured premature baby top; white/mix baby cardigan; bright baby top with long sleeves and on the right a hat in self striping yarn. It’s such a pretty yarn, pastel shades with deeper pink and green splashes on the white section. It looks almost like a floral design has been knitted into it.
The Group, which was set up as part of the practice’s Social Prescribing work, meets every Friday afternoon, 2.30-4pm. Tea/coffee/biscuits are provided and all are welcome. Participants either work on charity knits like the premature baby clothes in the photograph, or continue with their own projects, There is a mix of experienced and novice knitters and crocheters in the group, and there is always help and tuition available to those who need it. We also have a supply of yarn, which has been kindly donated to the group to be used on the charity knits.
