    I am hoping you can help me, as I am looking fro someone to knit me some jumpers I have tried on many occasions to lean but now admit defeat and was wondering if you or any of the group knit for other people.
    I am happy to provide all that is necessary

    Dear Knitwits!
    I am looking for an experienced knitter to make a small waistcoat a la Kaffe Fassett.

    I have enough wool I think, doesn’t have to conform to pattern (some licence is great). Size about 8 or 10 I think.

    Delighted to pay any mad fool who volunteers.

    Would love to join a group as I have two or three items of knitting started but now having problems with shaping. Would like to have some expert advice on finishing these garments. Thanks

    Hi All,
    I do crochet and would love join the group :) if the group isn’t there anymore Im quite happy to meet with girls that do crochet too :) so we can share our hobby :)

  17. Deborah says:

    Well a glance at the facebook page suggests they are still active, though presumably not popping onto this site much any more :P

  18. Beryl Stoyle says:

    I am a lady who lives in a mobile home at Glenholt and would love to join a group of
    ladies or gents who are interested in knitting crochet cross stitch etc
    The last bus from here is 6 pm from park and ride which again is a 20min walk to it and back
    All community buses finish at 4 but are active from 9am
    So I can on a weekly trip go to and fro on this bus between 9am to 3.30
    If anyone living near me would like to come to my home I would be ok with that as I could easily cope with around 10
    I also have a car space and probably two cars could park there if need be
    Welcome any feed back

  19. Maggie says:

    hi beryl. Just found this site. Are you still knitting. If so where are you and everyone else hanging out please. I’d love to join in and if anyone can help me learn a few more crochet stitches I’d be grateful. Ta. Maggie
