Knitters are working hard knitting and crocheting squares for the Burgh Community Blanket. Progress is impressiveand Our Community Blanket is starting to come together.
A dozen ladies returned for a second “get together” on 6 November, to share knitting news and there was plenty of tea and cake to keep everyone energised.
So where will the Burgh Community blanket go? Possibly to a refugee camp in Syria, Afghanistan or Kurdistan, or maybe to a shelter centre or food bank in this country.
The next get together is on Wednesday 21 November 10.30-12.30, in the Reading Room. It’s open to all, whether you are knitting or just fancy a cup of tea and chat. Some lades like to zip in and out promptly, while others like to stay a while for a natter.
The squares will be sewn into strips. The ladies will then have a chance to sew together the strips and knit more squares as well as checking on progress, ahead of sending off in time for Christmas.
There will be a final festive get together when the blanket and any other scarves, hats or gloves are packed up and sent off for Christmas.
