 Crazy about knitting

 

 

Welcome to this month’s meeting and hopefully the summer.

We have begun hiding the Little Yellow Ducks you made and are so pleased that Daphne and Duncan have been found!!  They were found in Norway and have been logged onto the world map on www.thelittleyellowduckproject.org   Still more to hide and be found.

Operation Orphan have collected all their knitting this month, so we are ready to start collecting again.

Just a reminder that Thursday comes before Wednesday next month!

 

 

                           Projects for July

 

1) As mentioned, we are still knitting for Operation Orphan, who were so grateful for our last lot of knitting

 

2) Hugababies are still wanted, the hat, booties and blanket sets please.

 

3) We have another 2 boxes for the Seafarers Mission all ready for posting, which is great.  So, more hats, fingerless gloves and balaclavas would be great.

 

4) Summer Fete’s and fundraising for The RUH Cancer Appeal.  More of your wonderful knitting would be so welcome.  We get comments all the time about how colourful and lovely our stall looks.  Which is down to your beautiful knitting, so thank you.

 

5) Operation Christmas Child knitting - hat, mitt and puppet sets, finger puppets, pencil cases and little bags for 2 -4 girls and boys.  Also, hats, fingerless gloves, hairbands, flower brooches for 10 – 14 girls and boys.

 

6) Poppies for Melksham Remembrance Day would be great.

 

7) Bonding Squares for The RUH and Southmead would still be appreciated.  Two squares, 4-5 inches square, made the same and attached together.  

 

8) Lastly, to help with clearing your odd bits of yarn The AgeUK Little Innocent Hats are still needed.
