What we’ve been working on

Our first harvest of Japanese flowers

Some of us are enthusiastic amateurs, some much more accomplished and a great number of us are keen beginners. We started with a bit of crochet, which, once mastered, is a very easy way to make something quickly. Whilst knitting and crocheting is not all about speed, there is something very satisfying about an ‘automatic’ project – something that is completed in one or two sittings. These flowers require some basic crochet skills, just enough concentration to be absorbing and are very quick to do. Making a beautiful blanket might take a while but that’s what our lunchtime sessions are for.
