A stitch in time helps to keep kids in Malawi cosy
Members of a new knitting group have been making jumpers that are being sent to poverty-stricken kids in Malawi.
Now the knitters are appealing for people to donate wool and knitting needles, so they can make even more items for charity.
The group has been set up by staff at Neilston Library and as well as the jumpers and cardigans for Malawi children to wear during the cold nighttime, they have also knitted blankets for the Scottish SPCA Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, twiddle muffs for Neilston WRI to donate to care homes, and wooly hats which are handed over to a charity for homeless people.
Anyone who would like to learn how to knit, or already know their purl from their slip stitches, is invited to join the group at Neilston Library, every Wednesday from 11am to 1pm.
