Knit in public week!

Posted on

Yay! That’s right, it’s time for all of us to get out there with our yarn, hooks and needles to spread the word of this wonderful craft!
It also means that tomorrow is plane day! 🙂

Come and join me at Birmingham central library to knit and crochet planes, between 10 am and 4 pm. All materials are provided and everyone is welcome- whether you can knit/ crochet already or want to learn.
Here are the knitting crochet patterns that I’ll be using tomorrow:

Or why not bring a project you’re already working on, and find a comfy spot between the books or out on the lovely balconies? Hope to see you there!

Knit for Britain!

Posted on

Have you heard about knitting Britain from above? It is a fantastic venture by Sandra Brauer to do with Britain from Above, which presents the unique Aerofilms collection of aerial photographs from 1919-1953. You can register to zoom into these amazing pictures, identify unlocated images, and share memories.

As part of World Wide Knit in Public Week from 8th to 16th June 2013, we have invited people with a love of knitting help us form a woolly squadron to invade Britain’s public spaces. Here they all are! Are there any near you?

This project will be going again this year over Knit in Public day on June 14th. I cannot wait to get involved with my own bi-plane knits 🙂 There is a pattern that you can work from here: KnitforBritainfromAbove2 or alternatively you can do your own thing?

There are loads more wonderful pictures at http://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/groups/knit-britain-above (where you can upload your own images) as well as information. Have fun taking to the sky’s and getting involved!
