Coffee Morning Pett Village Hall Wednesday 3rd August 10.00am – 12.00

Coffee Morning and Library Notes
With pleasant weather on July 6th we were able to set up some tables and books outside giving a choice of surroundings for coffee and book browsing.

The nature of our relationship with East Sussex Libraries is changing as it would seem that we are now the only people participating in their scheme. However Pett Village Community Library is carrying on and operating the same way as before. So we will continue to be pleased to see all of Pett’s keen readers and to provide as wide a choice of reading matter as possible for you.

Robert from East Sussex Hearing Aid Support is now able to use the Doctor’s Room for consultation, which we hope is a nicer venue than the corridor!

The next Coffee Morning and Library will be on Wednesday August 3rd. We look forward to seeing you there.

Pett on the Knit

Grateful thanks to the family of the late Eve Darnell, who lived in Pannell Lane. They arrived on my doorstep with two bin bags full of beautifully knitted items to be sent to Knit for Peace. Scarves, jumpers of all sizes, cushions, all knitted using intricate patterns and of the highest quality. They will be winging their way to Knit for Peace shortly.

Knit for Peace accepts anything knitted with love: baby clothes, knitted toys, hats, scarves, gloves, socks, together with the blankets which are then distributed to those in need in deserving countries at home and abroad. The rising cost of living in the UK, including fuel prices, will add to the stress of lower income families. I like to think that Eve’s scarves and jumpers will be put to good use to keep the recipients warm.

The latest box of goodies cost over £15 to be couriered to London. If you don’t knit, but would like to help in another way, a donation for postage is always welcome.

The dimensions and pattern for the squares are repeated below. Squares should measure 12.5cms (5 inches) square, be made of synthetic DK wool, and knitted on No 4mm (old fashioned No 8) needles.

Blanket Square Pattern: (knit diagonally)

Cast on 1 stitch.
Row 1: kf&b (2 stitches)
Row 2: K1, kf&b (3 stitches)
Row 3: K1, kf&b, k1 (4 stitches)
Row 4: K1, kf&b, k2 (5 stitches)
Row 5: K1, kf&b, k3 (6 stitches)
Row 6: K1, *K1, kf&b, knit to end of row*
Repeat the 6th Row from * to * until side of the square measures 12.5 cms or 5 ins exactly.
Begin to decrease.
Next Row: K1, k2tog, knit to end of row.
Repeat this row until 2 stitches remain.
Next Row: K 2 together.
Tidy up wool ends by sewing into square.

Abbreviations: K = Knit, Kf&b = knit into the front and back of the same stitch, K2tog= knit two stitches together.

If you need any wool, let me know. I’m not in need of any donations of wool at the moment but if you have any squares or items to donate please bring them to the Coffee Mornings, or to me at 2 Brambletye, Pett Road, near the Methodist Church.  I can always come and collect – any questions please contact me on 07977 100 296 or or
