October 2012

Knitting for Charity was this months event. The task was to knit any garment suitable for anyone be it for a grown up, infant or toy that included raglan shaping of any technique and design. The garment also had to be suitable for donation for eventual sale so that all proceeds would benefit the chosen charity, the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre in Reading. A prize was awarded for the best entry.
