    Many of the ladies at Lillyburn are keen knitters and enjoy meeting on a regular basis with Marion, one of our volunteers for the “knit and natter” club. The group have been knitting squares which will be used to make blankets for the minibus outings on colder days.

    The club is a social event for the knitters who enjoy a good old chin wag with each other. Knitting is also a a great way to keep your brain functioning and provides many of the same relaxation benefits as yoga however as with any new skill, it takes a little time to get the hang of it.

    Marion McKenzie, Volunteer, said “knitting has therapeutic benefits that can effectively relieve stress because it allows you to focus on the task in front of you rather than dwelling on our worries and concerns. It works well when we all have a goal to achieve knitting squares to create blankets for the minibus outings is vert satisfying.”
