I went to a meeting on bank holiday Monday to give my ideas to a new community project starting up here.
One of which was a knitting tent (more of a craft tent really, it just depends on who, if anyone is gonna turn up)getting young ‘uns and oldies together and promoting knitting to those who think it’s a geeky thing (how dare they!).
The other was a touring knitting group to visit care homes for the elderly in the area.
Both have been accepted!
I’ve been given the use of a church hall, and the land around it, so we can go outside if the weather is nice (the owners are just discussing days between them) and they are keen to get it going ASAP!
A rather loud splash into the deep end methinks, still, it doesn’t give me a lot of time to think about it, just get on with it!
I put an ad on freecycle for any donations and I’ve already acquired 2, yes 2 knitting machines (how can you have one of those in yer house and not use it?) and a bit of yarn.
If it is successful, I might try and get Brenda Dayne (of Cast On) over here as she’s not too far away. How exciting!
