We were inspired after a visit from the Nottingham Hospice to knit for charity, and we decided on the concept of a hamper, containing a selection of hand and machine knitted goods that could be sold by a charity. The idea is that the hamper is taken to an event of some sort, the contents are sold, with the money taken being kept by the charity. The hamper is then returned to the knitting club for replenishment, ready for sending to the next event.
Thank you to everyone who knitted – especially Jean Conduit, who has provided a range of hats and scarves – and to Priscilla Morley, for organising it all. I’m sure you’ll agree that it looks very inviting.
