       Happy Hookers

 

 

 

 

The Happy Hookers is an informal crochet and knitting group that meet Monday afternoons from 2pm – 4pm at The Spread Eagle, Queen’s Road, Brentwood – where they serve the best hot chocolate in town! Occasionally we work on a group project and have donated blankets and other items to Knit for Peace but generally we each work on our own individual projects. If you wish to learn to knit or crochet, it’s likely there’ll be someone on hand to help you.

All Welcome. No need to book. 

 

Well done to everybody who made a snake to join the slither of snakes world record attempt to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research.  Don’t they look amazing?

 

A slither of snakes

Our latest project is perfect for using up scraps of yarn in your stash. You can knit or crochet a snake that will be sent off to be a part of a record breaking attempt to create the longest ‘slither of snakes’ and to then be sold off to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research. We only have until the end of March but I’m assured the snakes knit or crochet up very fast. You can see pictures of other snakes on the slither of snakes facebook page.

The patterns can be found here

Last year we made a number of items for refugees. We donated a total of eleven blankets plus hats and scarves.

The response from Knit for Peace:-

 

 Dear ‘Happy Hookers’,

I am delighted to say that we have received your wonderful knitted donations. We look forward to delivering the hats, scarves and blankets, as they will undoubtedly make a big difference to those in need. 
Thank you for your support, we truly appreciate it. 
Your donations have a great impact on the communities where they are sent, not only do they provide much needed warmth, but the recipients are always so touched by the time and effort that you put into making these items.
Thank you once again for your support. We couldn’t do our work without the generosity of knitters like you. For the latest information from Knit for Peace, remember to sign up to our e-newsletter and follow us on Twitter! 

Warm wishes from the whole team,
Izzie

 Happy Hookers crocheted green hearts to make bunting in support of the Climate Coalition’s action on climate change – make and give a green heart for Valentine’s Day. We also knitted squares with a heart motif, again in green, which were sent to York Knits and Crochets to be made into blankets for flood victims.
