Welcome to Closeknit
Thank you to all the members of Closeknit who knitted and/or crocheted the daffodils in the Easter wreath on the cross in the sanctuary at Trinity.
It was lovely that so many people said how much they appreciated the creation and wonderful that so many initially thought they were real flowers. (see detail above)
CLOSEKNIT CHRISTMAS PARTY 2018
Closeknit members looking content,
Following a banquet truly heaven sent.
Distributing presents brought by Secret Santa
Then sharing entertainment and jovial banter.
Whilst Trinity has been in lockdown, Closeknit members have kept in touch mainly by using WhatsApp. Ruth Parker has kept us busy with mini projects like making sheep for the Sheep Trail and activity bag items like chickens for Easter and flower brooches for Mother’s Day.
As you can see from the previous photographs, the charity knitting has continued to be at the heart of the projects covered. I, for one, have been very moved by the generosity of the person who donated money for the Malawi cardigans, but it has also been emotionally rewarding to read the thank you letters from the hospital and care home. How wonderful to make people feel so happy, just by doing some knitting!
The Closeknit members have become great friends and we cannot wait to get back together in the church building, knitting, chatting and eating some homemade cake.
