Help us lobby the German embassy with the knitted river
Keep it to yourself but I've heard a rumour that the Greek nuns are coming out of hiding for this event!!!!!
I Knit London, club, shop and sanctuary.
While I was writing I saw some squirrels playing in the tree just outside the shop window. I thought squirrels hibernate in the winter. Anyway, they went mental when a Jack Russell came along and tried to climb the tree.
Anyway, it's friday night, the men are here and I'm not knitting!
ps Craig has stopped blogging probably because I have taken over post camera present - if you miss him just holler!
Contribution from knit on the net jr, we love it, thank you jr.
Since we started I Knit London we have met a new best friend almost every month, Susan being our newest. You must visit Knit on the net, if you haven't already, I think we have blogged about it before, it has great free patterns as well as articles (Knit a river is featured in the latest issue!). The second issue is out late February.
We are very excited about all the plans we are making for 2007, some of which include KNIT ON THE NET!!!
Knitting news, knitted some new baby presents for my friend Sally, or rather her new baby whose arrival is imminent.
This is a picture of just some of the unsewn squares for the river. They are still pouring in. I thought that Christmas might force a cesation but I think people have been extra caring over the festive season and made their contribution.
Thank you thank you thank you. We are humbled by the response we have received with this campaign and I find it difficult to adequately express my gratitude for your contributions of blue squares and the help we've received sewing them together.
If it's not obvious from the picture there are 12 bins bags full of blue squares. Some of the bin bags are industrial and so are bigger than the normal black bin liner. A further 10 have been sent to storage. Other bags are at home, at the shop, temporarily houses in a vacant corner at WaterAid or with people who have volunteered to help sew them.
Which brings me to a request - if there is anyone who would like to spend a hour or more sewing/knitting/crocheting blue squares together, please get in touch, we would be delighted and honoured by your help.
