5 in 5 as we craft and chat

every Wednesday I crochet and chat and drink good coffee and eat a scone or coconut bread with a group of lovely ladies.  We knit and crochet blanket squares and hats and toys and jumpers to send to charities (2 ladies also make dresses from charity shop duvet covers). The cafe lets us use the big room through the back so we can spread out around a big table with plenty of room for our wool and bags as well as our beverages.

I was taking photos of the items we had made recently but preferred the images which captured more of the feeling of the meetings – sharing 5 of them to join in with Sandie’s lovely 5 in 5 meme


The two main charities we send items to are

Knit a Square who give blankets (and hats and toys) to orphans in South Africa

Love in the Language of Yarn who are based in Turkey and give items to Syrian refugees

I'd love to find a group like this to join. It would be a great way to find some more yarn lovers round here.

Your makes (and your cakes) look fab
