My knitting is famous in Manchester!

A while ago, after knitting my tree cosy in the Cuba Street Carnival, I saw on the Outdoor Knit blog that knitters were being called on to help create a knitted ‘installation’ called Yarn Forward at the Manchester (England) Craft & Design Centre. So I followed the instructions and sent over a knitted orange strip of the required size.

I’ve been following their blog for a while and have seen pictures of where the strips end up – they’re being sewn end to end around the balcony railing in the Manchester Craft & Design Centre – but when I posted mine off I never thought in the hundred’s that they’ve been receiving that they would name me and my strip and put a photo on their blog! But they did!! Am delirious with excitement. Over a bit of knitting. Sad I know!

So here’s the Yarn Forward’s blog post

And the photo of my orange moss stitch strip!

That’s fantastic. Pity it’s not in N.Y. and you could have gone and seen it. So much more high brow tham Cuba Mall. M.I.L
