A BAND of Morpeth knitters have created a Christmas corner in one of the town’s main buildings.

The Morpeth Library Knitting Group has made the knitted reindeer and Santa piece to decorate a section of the library during the festive period.

Artist member Cynthia Robinson-Begg also designed and made Father Christmas’s red sleigh.

The group has been meeting in the teen area of the library since March this year and, due to popular demand, recently increased the frequency of its meetings to weekly.

Co-ordinator Louise Freeman said: “Over the course of the year, many personal knitting projects have been completed and we have now taken the opportunity to do our first joint project for Christmas.

“All of the figures were made from donated or recycled materials and the project was inspired by the new book ‘Twas the Knits before Christmas’ by Fiona Goble.

“Hopefully, people will take a look at them when they visit the library.

“There will also be a kids’ competition to name a reindeer, with crafty prizes kindly provided by Treacle Handknits.”

Members now meet every Wednesday between 10.30am and noon. All are welcome to attend and there is no charge except for a small contribution towards refreshments.
