stitches and hos May 2010

It was a quiet edition of our monthly knitting hootenanny.  Maybe everyone was enjoying the sunshine.  I don’t blame them really.

A big thanks to everyone who came along.  Especially to Clare and Dave for providing sounds to stitch to

Trevor Pitt also came along to launch his knitted bench project with us.  Trevor has been inviting knitting groups from around the country to cover a garden bench in knitting.  The 2 seater benches will then be exhibited together and be used to help teach people to knit.

So stitches and hos will be knitting a bench for the project using Baa Baa Black Sheep wool a blend of Jacob, Wensleydale and mixed breed sheep wool. We’ll keep you posted about our progress.

Here are a few pictures from the night
