Get Nan to knit you a blanket

Put Nan’s needles to work.

Winter is on its way. That means it’s time for Nan to get knitting.

Or maybe it’s time you took over the needles? Whether you know how to knit or not, it’s never too late to learn. Beanie, scarf, jumper, blanket? It’s all possible with a couple of needles and some balls of yarn.

As the ancient proverb goes, “Give a man a knitted jumper and he’ll be warm for a while (until he accidentally puts it through the dryer and shrinks it). Teach a man to knit a jumper and he’ll be warm for life.”
