Knit and Natter 15th January

More lovely projects were on show at Friday’s online Knit and Natter group. I took some screenshots so we could share what we’ve been working on. My fellow spinner from Berwick is knitting this colourful child’s cardigan.

The pattern (with jumper and cardigan options) and yarn were in this month’s subscription knitting box.


Her husband was drum carding some Gotland fleece ready to spin.

Isn’t this yarn gorgeous? I love those aqua colours. A member of the group from Alnwick has just cast on with it.

It’s going to make a very glamorous/scarf/wrap.

The raspberry blanket is getting bigger.

I worked on my socks with the lovely blue Silent Night yarn.

We’ve had a request for twiddle muffs. These are used for dementia patients – something to hold, stroke and twiddle with, which can be immensely calming – those of us with pets know how relaxing it is to stroke your cat or dog. Twiddle muffs are a great way of using up oddments of yarn, especially if it has an interesting texture, and they can be embellished with buttons, bows and beads, inside and out. I’m going to try and make some over the next week or two and see if I can use up some of my ridiculous collection of yarn!
