Day 7

Day 7 i spent some time at the Hornbeam Centre as artist in residence……a 1st for me.Informal but great to be able to be there knitting & show people the start of the year & answer questions.

So photos show me knitting there,the piece so far,a pile of yarns that i received from a kind person via freecycle & a hat on display made by my friend Margaret using upcycled yarn made by another friend Dee based in Nottingham.

Dee makes upcycled yarn using industrial spools no longer in use with unwanted yarns & spins them together to make a completely new yarn, thus saving the yarn from landfill & making something truly unique.

I’m going to be busy over the next few days so will update as soon as can get online.Have a great weekend everyone.
