Knitters and crochet enthusiasts had a good yarn in Rastrick.
They cast-off to mark World Wide Knit in Public Day in an event run by online shop Baa Baa Brighouse at Rastrick Library.
The event was attended by knitters and crochet enthusiasts from in and around Brighouse, giving them the opportunity to meet like-minded people, exchange knitting tips, discuss projects and celebrate their craft.
It also marked the launch of a regular Baa Baa Brighouse Knit and Natter Group, which will meet on the first and third Saturdays of every month at Rastrick Library, Crowtrees Lane from 10.30am – 12.30pm.
Elaine Jinks-Turner, owner of Baa Baa Brighouse, said: “The day was a real success and definitely highlighted a need for more fibre craft groups in the local area.”
Tea, coffee, cake and biscuits were served and £20 was raised for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice from a woolly raffle with prizes of Louisa Harding yarn and Laura’s Loom yarn provided by Baa Baa Brighouse.
Children were also able to take part in the event with a number of crafts available including pom pom making, making faces out of wool and buttons and making button bracelets.
The first of the twice-monthly sessions is on Saturday July 5 and all are welcome to join, from novice knitters to experienced.
