Worldwide Knit in Public Day 14th June 2012

Today, the sun shone, the knitters came, a community was formed. What a fab day! Below are images of the knitters outdoors at Downham Town Square, Nik demonstrating spinning to a group of school children, Maid Fibre the lovely narrow boat fibre people, church helpers, etc etc. Even Jo Garner from the Lynn News who came to cover the event, stayed and crocheted with us!

Nik, who is a beginner to spinning, brought Myrtle to demonstrate the art of spinning alpaca wool to a group of children from Hillcrest School.

The lovely people from Maid of Fibre abandoned their narrow boat at St Ives, and drove over to join us! Lovely to meet Maggie, Richard and Stewart. So good to have a man knitting with us!!!

Below are the people who added value to our event! The people who got there at 8.30 to festoon the town hall with bunting (you know who you are). Marian, Dot and Jen who made tea and coffee all morning. Doug and Monica who ran the raffle. A huge thank you to you all.

 Shall we do it all again next year?   I would say so!  It was such fun. Come and join us next year! It runs from Sat 8th - Sun 16th June 2013.
