Editor’s note: Our readers have said, in their free time, they love going back over previous editions of our roundups. So we’ve kept the crafty goodness below from this time last year.

In the rhythm of the needles there is music for the soul. This week I’ve been attempting to complete a simple hat on circular knitting needles and I’ve certainly enjoyed doing it. There is a rhythm I get into when knitting and I do feel very relaxed. This week I came across the work of a fabulous charity organisation in the United States who create “Knitted Knockers” Plenty of other tips and tricks for inspiring your craft this week.

Knitted Knockers

There are so many groups who do fabulous volunteer work with their chosen craft. One group of volunteer knitters make ‘Knitted Knockers’. Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. What a sensational project. Read more about their work at http://www.knittedknockers.org/
