Mighty fine weather for YarnBombing
Actually, it was a bit on the chilly side. The stars were shining on me as I got in to my car this morning. I bet they thought 'What's she doing up? We don't normally see her before sunrise'.  It was a frosty -1 at 5.45 this morning. And dark.

Knitting for Knockers Kick Off

Yes. You heard me. We have decided to give a little back this month. We aim to teach no less than 50, FIFTY, people to knit. With pink wool.

Our lovely local wool shops Warwick Wools and the Wool Warehouse have agreed to donate some pink wool to the cause. Our teachers, Tracy and Denise, are generously donating their time. We're donating the room, needles, scissors and copious tea bags.
