Sarah Trappitt, group leader says, ‘We will be starting our knitted square blanket for charity. All welcome, even if you can’t yet knit. Bring your knitting needles and spare balls of wool.’
The Market Harborough Carers Knit & Natter group are making items for various charities and they are running out of wool. So if anyone has a stash of unused or unwanted good quality wool going spare please let us know or drop it off at The Settling Rooms in Market Harborough.

Love knitting? Want a project? Also into recycling? Then this national WI competition may be something to while away those dark winter evenings. Application Something old – Something New – entry by Monday 21 March 2016
Yes, some new terms here but things will be much clearer at the March monthly meeting. It’s all to do with the Tea and Tents WI camping weekend this summer. Clare and Fiona were straight there on the web when the tickets were released and will be representing Market Harborough again this year.
A Yellow Brick Road is to be knitted (as part of their yarn bomb) to go around the grounds. This complements the Wizard of Oz theme for the weekend.
Help the WI celebrate its’ Centenary year by knitting bricks for the Yellow Brick Road. There’s patterns, too.
