The exhibition is up

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………………

Knitting between library visits





The photos show the length that was knitted at the library, it is several colours as chosen by people but has just 1 tail for that day.the tags have peoples names on.yesterday I knitted using the last brown/cream from sue ay knit nottingham,this morning i used some donated mint green acrylic.
I’m looking forward to meeting people on the art trail walk, do bring me something to knit with or choose a yarn from my bag of yarns & get your own name tag on the piece.
For anybody taking part in the trail quiz I can tell you that the yarn Ian choosing to knit with tomorrow is a red acrylic with silvery bits in.
Feet.up time now after a very busy day.
