Knitting Circle

There has been great progress made in recent weeks in our Knitting  Group with many children completing an item in the garter stitch.
The cold spell encouraged some children to knit a shrug  while others have completed a variety of soft toys -Sheep, snakes, owls, penguins and teddies. We hope to progress to doing the rib and stocking stitches.

Knitting has many benefits for children.
o Develops dexterity in fine motor skill muscles.
o Improves hand eye co-ordination.
o Builds confidence in acquiring a new skill.
o Improves concentration span.
o Rhythmic activity is soothing and constructive.
o Working with different colours and textures develops creativity .
o Sense of achievement with a finished product.
o Develops social skills with fellow knitters.
