The Knitting Noras Naked Knitting Calendar 2010


The Knitting Noras are a group of knitters from Bolton, Lancashire who are taking "extreme knitting" to a new level as they bare all.

The Knitting Noras chose The Christie Hospital in Manchester as their latest charity to support after one of their members made a successful recovery from cancer at the hospital.

But their story took a more poignant twist when co-founder of the group Sarah Richards died suddenly after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Inspired by each other's abilities to create with knitting and crochet along with their sense of fun and adventure the Knitting Noras decided to produce a calendar for 2010 to raise funds and this is a calendar with a fun twist: Naked Knitting!

Some of the Knitting Noras were recently featured on Manchester's Channel M television publicising the calendar. To watch video of the interview please click here

We will be selling the calendar once it is finished but to follow their progress in the meantime click here to visit The Knitting Noras' blog at nakedknitting2010.blogspot.com

The Knitting Noras meet on the from 1pm on last Sunday of every month at Costa Coffee in Victoria Square, Bolton, and from 7pm on the second Tuesday of every month at the Blundell Arms in Chorley Old Road, Bolton.
