Grasmere Parish Magazine  February – March 2021

Knit and Nat

We, knitters and natters, would like to send our good wishes to all readers of the magazine for 2021; we hope the year improves and we will be able to meet up again with friends and neighbours sooner rather than later. We thank the Reading Room for allowing us to meet there when we are able which unfortunately was only a few times in 2020.

Knit and Nat will be holding 3pm zoom meetings on the second Tuesday and fourth Tuesdays in both February and March (February 9th and 23rd and March 9th and 23rd). We are happy to welcome anyone who would like to join in with our friendly chat and crafting help. Let us know if you are interested in joining us and we will include you in our log in notification.

The first meeting of the year saw us celebrate our sixth birthday on zoom. Carrie organised an excellent celebration with a game of prize bingo and a quiz. One of our members made a celebratory cupcake with a candle! All participants enjoyed the fun afternoon. Many thanks to Carrie for all the effort she put into the meeting.

We hope to get another batch of baby blankets together for the Furness General Hospital at the end of February. We knitted and delivered fifteen blankets before Christmas thanks to one of our group who happened to be going to the hospital. If anyone has a blanket for our collection just let me know and I will collect it from your house.

A reminder of the pattern: Double knitting wool, size 7 (4.5mm) needles, cast on 80sts and knit for 20 inches (51cms). Any pattern is acceptable. Christine Batey (35537)
