In honour of Knit and Crochet in Public day we're having woolly picnic in Victoria Park. ...in case of bad weather we'll relocate to New Walk Museum (cafe or foyer depending on how many we are).
Bring your current project or use some of your excess cotton and wool to help a premature baby stay warm and snug (see below).
The neonatal units in Leicester need tiny baby clothes for their young patients. It's a great way to use up excess yarn and an easy way to brighten up the day for some worried parents. Here are some patterns to start with - hats, cardigans and blankets seem to have highest priority and the clothes should be machine washable, preferably cotton....or woll (if machine washable and not itchy).
You can either hand over your knitted/crocheted donation directly at the neonatal units at Leicester General or Leicester Royal infirmary or drop it off at Knit One any time in June - we'll pass it on to the neonatal units at the end of June.
Hope to see lots of you there - let's dazzle the citizens of Leicester with our knitting and crochet aptitude. :)
