this week is the last chance to see the knitting,photos & journals exhibited at at Slate,Leytonstone.The exhibition comes down on Saturday 10th March
Link to Slate blog,with Fab photos of my knitayear & a great write up.happy jay.
Photos taken with my mobile the night the exhibition went up .they are reflecting me taking photos whilst reflecting on the year & the exhibition !
I’ve been unable to get back to take photos since it went up due to a nasty cold & chest infection & now the snow & ice are here !
I have to go out today & I’m not keen on the icy conditions, much rather stay in and knit …. on the needles at the moment a 4row pattern repeat lacy scarf for my daughter.
Yesterday afternoon a friend helped me to put up the knitayear exhibition.With the assistance of the Slate volunteers it is looking fab !
The exhibition is in the windows of the council & next to the library in Leytonstone, East London .
The windows have boards which slot into place, so each board has to be placed individually.I had a rough idea & had practised laying it all out on my living room floor but i didn’t know if the boards would hold the weight of the journals so we had an experiment on the day.I’m pleased to report that the use of fishing line, knots & banging in of nails they are up & looking great !
The exhibition has the year of knitting pinned up, the journals, photos ,,extract from the blog, balls of upcycled yarn & knitting needles hanging.
In the final window are an excellent poster designed by Veronica Lindsay-Addy.which is promoting the carers group we are launching in 2 weeks !
I’m going back today to take photos so will post them later.
now to get the shopping & domestic chores out the way & then relax………………
