A big thanks to all of you who braved the borrid weather on Tuesday. Although there are signs of spring about it seems that winter is here for a little longer.
Here are some pictures from the night. A special thank you to Lee and Alison (who was wearing a fab spotty scarve) for providing sounds to stitch to. See you all next month but don’t forget about our Knitted Easter Egg Hunt @ Wolverhampton Art Gallery on 31 March
Stitches and Hos will be holding a one off special at Wolverhampton Gallery on 31 March 2010 from 6-9pm.
They’ll be an knitted easter egg hunt around the gallery, the lovely ladies from Sugarfoot Stomp will be playing all your favourite hits from the 1920’s – 1960’s. They’ll also be a pay bar serving wine, beers and soft drinks and of course a home made cake stand with sweet treats for sale.

The gallery is a short walk from both the metro and train station. Here’s a handy map
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.
