Schoolboy David Firth (front) proved that no-one could pull the wool over his eyes when it came to knitting sweaters for Ethiopia.
Almost all the 1,800 pupils at Colne Valley High School joined in a charity knit to make jumpers for babies and young children in famine-hit Ethiopia.
Knitting needles and wool replaced pens and exercise books during free time at the school.
The boys were just as enthusiastic as the girls – and just as productive, said secretary Mrs Maureen Walker, organiser of the marathon knit.
She told the Examiner: “We got a patterns from Oxfam and I provided the initial supplies of wool.
“The pupils then set to work and we have produced 70 jumpers. Hopefully we will top the 300 mark by half-term.
The response has been tremendous. Once the first children came to get a pattern and some wool, the whole thing snowballed.
“We now have mums and grandmas involved as well as nearly all of our 1,800 pupils,” said Mrs Walker.
