I decided to knit a blanket, using cream and neutral yarns from my stash. I’m using chunky and multi-stranded yarns on 12mm needles. I can’t put this down!

Some of the weavings in my outdoor woven art gallery are looking a bit the worse for wear, so I’ve been making some replacements and repairs.

On Tuesday I took part in the new project by Craftivist Collective - called Craftivists Garden.  You can find out more about the project here Craftivists Garden.

The workshop took place at The Make Escape a free craft night in Hackney, London, UK.

The idea of the project is to knit, crochet or stitch flowers “while reflecting on the importance of wellbeing and what we need in order to flourish”.  The flowers will be a part of a garden installation which will be unveiled in January 2015.

The pictures show some of the flowers we made at the workshop.  If you would like to take part, follow the link above to Craftivists Garden and join in.

It’s been very hot in the UK over the last few weeks (yes really!).  It’s been a bit too hot for weaving with wool. Today it’s been cooler so I got my pegloom out. Here is my work in progress.
