Yesterday saw the start of our new knitting group with 12 keen members arriving, needles at the ready. Most are competent at interlocking yarn loops on busy needles and proving that knitting improves concentration, is good for the brain and maintains fine motor skills. On the other hand, one member had never knitted and certainly found juggling yarn, needles and following instructions a bit of a challenge! But it was fun with members swapping ideas and skills. A hug of teddies (collective noun for a group of teddy bears!) is on its way and will be found at the village May Day celebration.
