Skipton Friendship Group: News

A bit of knitting anyone??!!

Even if current circumstances mean you cannot join our Group at the moment you might like to join in with one of our projects.

Perhaps you would like to have a go at these prem baby/African babies knitting patterns (see below)?? 

It could fill your time and help others too. They can be made of oddments of wool and are very easy to do.

If you complete any and would like to add them to our haul, just contact our Secretary on: 01756 792454.
