THE ORGANISER of Angus Machine Knitters, Wilma Stewart (left), handed over this huge array of colourful tiny clothes and blankets for Tayside’s premature babies at their meeting in the Helen Street clubrooms of the Royal British Legion Scotland last Wednesday evening.

Receiving them is Arbroath midwife Sheenagh Howard who will ensure the smallest are forwarded to Ninewells Hospital while some of the larger items will be useful in the Maternity Unit in Arbroath.

Sheenagh’s mum is a member of Angus Machine Knitters who continue knitting their spring programme of smart jackets suitable for evening wear, knitted in Yeoman’s Grigna - a fancy slub yarn with a sheen. Knitters will also start to think about the upcoming charitable project for blankets and clothing destined for Peru - a charity close to the heart of another of their members.

For more information about the Machine Knitters contact Wilma Stewart 01241 870787 or Catriona Little 01307 461916. New members and visitors are welcome at the British Legion Upper Hall in Helen Street, Arbroath on a Wednesday evening from 7.30 p.m.
