I read this morning in the paper, about a hospital who encouraged patients and visitors to knit blanket squares whilst they were spending time there. The small squares were turned into blankets for local charities. Great idea whilst you wait for your appointment eh?
A box containing needles and yarn was readily available in the waiting area. However some jobsworth of a Health and Safety officer has now decided that it’s too dangerous to leave out and has taken the box away.
Apparently you can still ask at reception to use the knitting box, but no-one really knows it’s there now.
