Enjoy to knit or crotchet? Then come along each Wednesday afternoon to "Knit & Natter" with us! This free group meets from 10.30am in the café area at The Brain Charity. It doesn't matter what your skill level is - you don’t even have to be able to follow a pattern!

After a chat with Janet at the charity, members decided to compete with each other, knitting squares which would then be sewn into blankets for children at home and abroad. So squares would be great, or maybe you'd like a bigger challenge?

Maybe you would like to knit something else, but would like company while you are doing it? If you'd like to learn, we'd love to see you. Come and knit - whatever and however you like!

Unable to get out, but still like the idea? How about joining our virtual group? Knit away at your own pace then send us the completed squares. Happy knitting!
