National Knitting Day!

It's National Knitting Day on Saturday. We don't normally do anything for this by Hobbycraft at the Fort asked if we would like to come in to do some demonstrations. We of course jumped at the chance. We will be there from 12-3pm so please come along and say hello. I won't be able to make it along but a number of others will and Dawn is going to be our photographer and blogger for the day. It should be good fun and it was nice of Hobbycraft to ask us along.

As well as a baby shower on Tuesday we had a few other things to photograph. First of all Donna brought along a blanket that her gran crocheted. Donna remember it when she was little although she doesn't know exactly how old it is. Love those colours and you would think it had been made yesterday.

We had a reason to celebrate too. Josephine is a crocheter and on Tuesday she finished her first knitting project. She knitted this lovely baby cardigan. Fingers crossed that she will keep going.

Margaret also had a finish. She finished this beautiful baby jacket she has been knitting for a friend. Love the yellow edging.

Elaine had been working on this sock monkey the last few weeks. This is for her daughter's birthday. It matches the lovely blanket Elaine made for her room last year.

Isabel also got to do her favourite - babysit. I took advantage of her storytelling to take this photo.
