A Codnor woman whose knitted creations have brought cheer around the world celebrated her 100th birthday on Sunday.

Dora Twigg, who turned 100 on February 2, is described as a “knitting machine” by her family.

Grandson Chris Rhodes said: “She sits daily in a little chair by the window and knits her little heart out. Her knitted creations bring smiles to faces and in some cases a little bit of comfort for impoverished children around the world. Letters and cards stamped with foreign post marks trickle in and encourage her to keep going.”
