Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

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.
