Knitting and Craft Group
Tuesday 14:00 - 15:30 Sycamore Tree
We meet to knit or crochet and chat. Sometimes more chat than knitting. We also have a cup of tea or coffee.
We have our own individual craft projects which at the moment include cardigans, soft toys, and a sausage dog draught excluder.
We help each other with difficulties with reading patterns and practical skills. We also help with new skills such as simple crochet.
We also have group projects, such as knitting/crochet displays (yarn bombing), items for charity, and Christmas characters for the local shops.
Sometimes it is nice to do simple small items between other projects.
Our Yarn Bombing project is to create seasonal designs on the chain link fence to brighten our corner at the Larkfield Traffic Lights.
This year’s projects are:
Easter – yellow flowers
Summer – ‘In the Clouds’ panorama
Autumn – Remembrance Poppies
Christmas – Stars and Angels
Existing ongoing Charity projects:
12 inch blanket squares for Maidstone Hospital’s dementia patients
Dolls clothes for a project called ‘Christmas House’. They collect dolls and dress them and send them to third world countries.
Handmade contributions for the Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Boxes.
