stitches and hos @ Wolverhampton Art Gallery

Right then our 2nd event of last week was at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

For our one off special we invited the lovely ladies from Sugarfoot Stomp to provide sounds to stitch to and held a knitted easter egg hunt around the gallery. The egg hunt was great – a lot of bemused knitters searching round the ground floor of the gallery to spot the knitted eggs.

Thanks to everyone who turned up.  A very special thanks to Rebecca Belcher who helped out manning the cake stall and teaching the youth forum group to knit.  Another special thanks to Kate Andrews for inviting us to the gallery.

The pattern for the eggs comes from purlbee – the online journal of purl soho shop in New York

hello stitchers

I’m busy getting all spring like for our Easter egg hunt event at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on 31st March 2010.  It seems that the official signs of spring are here.  I’ve recently been to the Cotswolds and there were loads of snowdrops

Our Easter egg hunt event is part of the Jann Haworth exhibition.  The lovely ladies from Sugarfoot Stomp will provide sounds to stitch to, there will be a cake stall and of course an Easter egg hunt round the gallery.

I’ve finally cracked (sorry!) how to knit in the round on double pointed needles.  It’s taken a while – but it now means that I can get on and make the knitted eggs for the Easter egg hunt.

Here’s the first one.  The pattern came from purl bee who have 2 amazing shops in New York – one for patchwork and one for knitting and crochet.
