Knitting & Nattering

As well as getting our Christmas Sewing Club projects under way, over the past two weeks my thoughts have turned once again to another of my passions - knitting. This time with a good cause in mind.

Tomorrow will see the first ever Hope & Gloria Charity Coffee Morning where the Hope & Gloria Team and I will be raising money to support The Big Issue Foundation's Annual Knitathon which runs every November.

The Big Issue Foundation is a brilliant and inspiring UK charity that works tirelessly to help homeless people off the streets and back in to the workplace thus empowering them and leading to a complete change of life. I feel very proud to be supporting this brilliant charity.

Tomorrow morning along with Clare and Allison from the Hope & Gloria Team, I'll be offering beginners and improvers one hour knitting lessons in return for a £3 donation. We'll also be selling refreshments and knitted gifts plus a raffle.

As it's the first event of its kind that we have run, we have no idea how it will go but we are all keeping our fingers crossed for a good turnout. Either way, it has been lots of fun making knitted decorations and accessories to sell - here are just a few of them....

If you happen to be in the SL5 area in the morning we'd love you to join us for a cuppa and a celebration of all things woolly!
