IF you think that knitting is the preserve of the “more mature lady”, think again!

At Whalley-based Oakhill College the ancient art of turning balls of wool into fashionable clothes is all the rage with a new generation of “modern misses”

Before the weather turned wintry, teacher Mrs Thornton-Gray and the senior pupils from the college’s newly-formed CAFOD Craft Club took advantage of the last of the summer sun to knit and purl a few more rows in the open air.

Normally the club takes place on Wednesday, but such was the enthusiasm for knitting that there were even more knitters and natterers on the sunny Thursday. Their al fresco activity also drew quite a crowd of intrigued fellow pupils so maybe a few more pupils will take up the knitting needles – how about it boys?
