Our grand day out!

March 30, 2010

Cathy and I went to Liverpool on Saturday to spend the day at Make Do and Knit. We came away with wool, books and BIG knitting and crochet needles. Here are some of our highlights…

Ingrid Wagner of Rug and Art Creation
We both have a pair of these needles (not quite so long though) – will post the results. Ingrid creates her rugs using selvedges which would otherwise be discarded as waste. I was thinking of recycling old clothing.

 

The Poetry Societys' Knitted Poem

The poem is Dylan Thomas’ ‘In my Craft or Sullen Art’. You can read the poem and the story behind the knitting at http://www.poetrysoc.com/content/knit/.

A closer view

We bought sock yarn with silver threads (I think I will knit this up using the Viper pattern thats been stored in Ravelry for at least a year!); a great book of vintage patterns ‘A stitch in Time ‘- you will hear more of this I’m sure. The designs were featured in the fashion show and were spectacular. The vintage patterns have been reqorked using yarns available today. If you can’t wait, you can but it from knitonthenet.com.
