Knit and Natter 20th November

Some great projects were in progress at the Zoom Knit and Natter Group on Friday. This colourful crochet blanket is now finished and the bold diagonals look great.

For a complete change, this group member is now moving on to pink patchwork hexagons.

Also completed this week are some Christmas Tree decorations.

The Christmas stocking and tree have now been decorated with sequins. You can never have too much glitter hanging on the Christmas tree!

We’ve seen our beginner knitter’s grey stocking stitch rectangle get longer and longer over the last few weeks. We talked about how that is now big enough to become a cosy cowl. She’s going to check out some You Tube videos before she casts off and sew the ends together.

Speaking of cowls, look at this colour work one, knitted in the round. Lovely isn’t it?

I’m working on a soft toy – can’t say much yet as it’s a gift.

Our newest member has been given some yarn and needles and has completed this lovely baby hat. She’s now on to another – they are to be donated to a hospital baby unit.

This Zoom group is an amalgamation of two knit and natter groups from Alnwick and Berwick run through GP surgery social prescribing. With hopeful news about COVID vaccines this week, we were speculating about the future. When we go back to our separate face-to-face groups and cafes reopen we could perhaps arrange a halfway meet. 2021 has so many possibilities.
