Knit in Public – the pictures
We all had a wonderful time at our Knit in Public Day – and we hope you did too!
You wouldn’t know this is normally completely empty space…
We had an enormous turnout for our KiP, and almost immediately ran out of chairs! (The wooden ones above were ‘requisitioned’ from Le Pain Quotidien). Some people found other places to sit:
I know it’s been a while, and many of you will be wondering: “So what took you so long? It’s been over a month!” My apologies for not posting before now. This is what I’ve been doing in the meantime instead (thank you Steven for the photo):
A pitiful excuse, I know!
The lovely Sarah Hatton from Rowan ran two workshops: Lace knitting (the grey cushion) and Textures (the brown one)
Both workshops required concentration…
The mug cosies
I promised the pattern for these: they will be on here next week so keep an eye out! Some people found other uses for our Rowan Big Wool yarn:
Our own very lovely Maggie made everybody a delicious red velvet cake. Maggie answers many of your e-mails and phone calls, so if you’re very nice to her she might share the recipe…
The knitting soldier
Help For Heroes were fundraising nearby – and their mascot couldn’t resist joining in the fun:
Finally… drum roll please… the tea cosy!
Lisa came along to knit for a couple of hours… or so she thought. At the end of the day she had knitted, chatted, taught – and then the manager at Le Pain Quotidien (remember those chairs?) mentioned that he’d really love a cosy for his teapot…
Did you ever see a cuter teacosy? We haven’t! Lisa has promised a pattern if she has time, so look out for that one too! The pom-pom and cord were made by Madel; check out our pom-pom makers if you want to make your own…
Thank you to all you lovely knitters for making our KiP so much fun – a lot of passers-by joined us and showed an interest, so lets hope we encouraged more people to take up the craft!
