From Past President Derek Andrew
In the DG’s Newsletter There was a brief mention of a small project being run by the Rotary Club of Springwood – making and distributing small woolen dolls or “Pocket Pals”. We have obtained the pattern from Springwood Rotary and adapted it for both knitting and crochet. It’s fairly simple process making a knitted/crocheted square, then forming a tube, stitching to delineate arms/legs and adding eyes etc. Lilian Andrew has already made several samples and will be looking into forming a group to make more. If a group eventuates we will advise but in the meantime if anyone wants to go ahead on their own, patterns are available from Derek.
When we have a reasonable number we will send them on to Springwood Rotary for donation to Turkey/Syria.
