Noisy Cramlington library knitters no longer welcome

A knitting group said it was no longer allowed to meet at a library because its needles are dangerous and its members are too noisy.

The Knit ‘n’ Natter group met at the library in Cramlington, Northumberland once a week to knit replica anatomical parts for training NHS midwives.

But now the library has moved and the knitters said Northumberland County Council had barred them.

The council said there was not enough room for the large group.

But a spokesman said the women were still welcome if they split into smaller groups.

Since the group began three years ago its 20 to 30 members have knitted thousands of garments for premature and sick babies.

They have also made 1,500 pairs of knitted breasts and are currently knitting wombs for midwives — via redwolf.newsvine.com
