Knitting Club

The Knitting Club, like everthing else, is cancelled. However, please don't stop knitting and we are continuing to meet on Zoom on the second Tuesday of each month.  Please email the Church Office office@fhpc.org.uk. for the Zoom codes.

You may have seen on Facebook and the press that our wonderful have knitted a teddie for every child beginning Primary One at Buckstone Primary School.  A fantastic effort ladies - well done Helen, Fiona, Isabel, Judith, Barbara, Anne, Nancy and Doreen

THE NEXT PROJECT is to knit hats and blankets for the babies at Simpson's Special Care Baby Unit.  You can download the patterns for the hats and blankets here.
 
Please continue with the other projects -

1. Hats, gloves and scarves for St.Catharine's Mercy Centre, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh - there is a permanent need for these.  

2.  Black school jerseys for children in Primary 1 and hats and scarves (in any colour) for Primary school aged children.  These will be given to the Edinburgh School Uniform charity.

3. Knit Blanket squares - there is a charity who use these blankets - one of our members will sew the squares together and another who will crochet an edge to the completed blanket so all you need to do is :

  • Use size 8/4mm needles
  • double knitting wool
  • to make the blanket, cast on one stitch, then cast on one stitch at the beginning of each row until there are 30 stitches, then cast off one stitch at the beginning of each row until one stitch is left.  Please leave a longish tail of wool to allow the squares to be sewn together

The first blanket has been completed - well done ladies!

 

Thank you to all our wonderful knitters who have knitted, so far, 59 hats, 19 scarves, 5 sets of hats of scarves, 3 pairs of gloves and neck warmers for the homeless.
WELL DONE EVERYONE!
