Knitters Anonymous — Hand made — with love
Very many thanks, once more , to all those of you, known and unknown, who so generously support this worthwhile cause. So many beautiful knitted and crochet items go through my hands, all of which find are gratefully received and find suitable homes.
The squares, for the bed throws and knee blankest are building up again, so please tell me if you know someone who would be pleased to receive one.
All the baby items go to Bliss for the prem babies and the hats scarves and gloves will be needed by Shelter or the Winchester Night Shelter should we have a cold winter.
Donations of any brightly coloured Double Knit wool, which can be left at the back of All Saints church, are always gratefully received.
Thank you all so much.
