My Crafts–series 1 Knit/Crochet

INTRODUCTION

Its time now to share with you all my ‘crafts’. a couple of years ago I joined one of the local craft groups in town.

I needed to socialise and get back to knitting and crocheting that had a purpose. The group meets at the local library every Friday morning. We are called ‘Neath Knit & Natter’.

Our work is of crochet/knit takes many various items. We have 1 person who has taken on the task of sending the items off to the various places where needed.

We knit/crochet for PREEMIE BABIES / NEWBORNS /ANGEL BABIES / THE HOMELESS / THE ELDERLY. The groups were found on Facebook and here we can catch up with wherever they need.

Over time I will be showing you my projects. As this is a new year I will be starting from there and posting up the photos.

It has been requested for ‘WORRY MONSTERS ‘ & ‘PUPPETS’. I have not made these before and found it a challenge and interesting to do. I hope to make more.

For the Preemie babies – CANNULA MITTS – used to cover their little hand/hands covering over the cannula in their arm, that’s the reason they are longer than the average mitt.

VENTILATORS Bonnets have a flap on the side – again for the tube to be inserted.
