Episode 8: Make, Do and Knit

Hello from the Plain! This episode I celebrate my own making and doing and talk about the recent Make, Do and Knit event from Liverpool.

On my needles, hooks and spindle: I finished seaming the stripy sweater

and the missing bear I finished crocheting blocks for NYOBE Round 5:

and I finished spinning the Shetland Top and then plied it:

Make, Do and Knit, Liverpool

A lovely relaxed atmosphere at the show, from the Blue Coat School at Liverpool (exterior and interior shots of the chapel).

Did you spot the cobweb?

There was a chance to see the Knitted Poem, although not in all its unrolled glory!
