Especially for You, Made With Love

The Ladies of  Lampeter have banded together to help those less fortunate than themselves cope with the chill of Winter.
Based in St.Thomas' Methodist Church ( Eglwys Fethodistaidd Sant Tomas ) and under the inspirational leadership of Diana Williams they have members from the Church Coffee Morning & many local Support Groups including  Carer's, Llys Pedr and the Macular Society plus the Leisure Centre & Lampeter Walkers.

Each blanket is labelled with the message

 'Especially for You, Made With Love' 

Ladies of all abilities are busy producing knitted six inch squares in the most amazing colours & patterns which are then crocheted beautifully together to make blankets of 5 x 7 squares.
Each blanket is named after someone who has knitted some of the squares, donated wool or given a contribution towards the materials.

Diana says that people of all skill levels can contribute &  that they are so delighted when they spot one of their squares in the finished item. 
The blankets are supplied to the Salvation Army in Carmarthen and to date they have produced twenty two, that's 770 squares!
Anyone who would like to join this team of happy knitters can contact Diana at Lampeter Methodist Church during the weekly Tuesday Morning Coffee sessions. 
The six inch squares should be double knitting with 40 stitches on size 8 needles for 47 rows. Crotchet 4 trebles and go round square a total of 6 inches.
 There is a guide leaflet available to help.
 No fluffy wool please.
