Knit For Unity

 
There’s a new knitting group in Glasgow which aims to bring together women from across the globe to make practical items whilst having a good old banter.   

   
I’ve been lucky enough to be able to attend the first two meetings and had such a fun time. As winter had set in – thanks Storm Abigail – we’re currently making scarves, cowls and hats with the recipients still to be decided. Ashley has created a beanie style hat she’s called the Hope Hat. It’s easy to knit so even if you can’t make the meetings I’ll pop a link into this post and if you make one for yourself why not make a second and send it to us? I’ll ask Ashley for an address to send it to.
  Knit For Unity meets every Monday between 12pm and 3pm at Maryhill Integration Network’s office within Maryhill Community Cenue on Avenuepark Street, Glasgow. Currently they have no funding for a crèche but as you can see from the photos the children attending enjoyed learning how to knit. 

The pattern for the Hope Hat can be found here on Ravelry  or on Ashley’s blog Make It Glasgow.
