Time for Teal

Date: 30th September 2016 | Category: News


We often hear how big life events motivate people to come together, and that’s just what happened when Pembrokeshire jewellery designer Lyn Roberts was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Lyn loves to knit and crochet, so she had a selection of natural yarns dyed a gorgeous teal and asked friends to design patterns for her project, Time for Teal, which includes three kits containing information on ovarian cancer. As Lyn says: “If this event raises awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer for one woman and she gets the help and treatment that she needs, in time, then it will have been worth it.” All funds go to Target Ovarian Cancer. For the kits, choose from basketweave crochet wrist warmers (£12), knitted spotty socks (£15) and a lacy knitted shawl (£18). Or crochet a bandana for your pooch, knit a hat/tea cosy by Belinda Harris-Reid or work a scarf-shawl with crochet edging by Caroline Bawn.
Patterns £3, organic Merino DK teal yarn £9. Buy from www.gorgeousyarns.co.uk
