WrappedInLove: Let's knit & crochet this SUNDAY!

15 weeks to go...

Will you be in Melbourne this Sunday (20th June)?
It would be lovely to see you at the Brunswick Green for some knitting & crocheting, ESPECIALLY if you don't know how, or you're a bit rusty. Don't be scared, there'll be lots of friendly faces there ready to help!

So come along, from 2-4pm, Brunswick Green, 313 Sydney Rd.
Tram 19, get off at Dawson St (Glenlyon Rd) and walk north, just a little bit.

What to bring:
  • your enthusiasm (of course!)
  • some knitting needles (size 7 or 8 or 9mm) or a crochet hook (5 or 6mm)*
  • some yarn if you have some, but don't worry if you don't - I'll bring lots
  • some spare change to buy a beer or a coffee (or whatever you drink, just so we're not completely freeloading)
I really hope you can make it. I'll see you there!

*just a guide, not a rule! Any size is fine.

My creative space: Yellow!

It's all about the yellow lately...
This yellow piece is for the WrappedInLove guerilla knitting project. It's my first finished piece, made from some cotton I picked up for $1 a ball at the Yarn Barn.

At a measly $2, even more of a bargain was this six cup and saucer set from the Salvo's.
Made in japan, how lucky am I?!

they're not exactly yellow, but something that has been keeping me busy is these coasters for sooz's usefulness swap. Coasters are useful, aren't they? I'm well behind and they're due next week- eek! Beginning to wonder why I signed up for a swap at the same time as I'm trying to cover a tree with knitting... :-)

next, one of the best things about living in Melbourne's north - cheese pies from the local Lebanese bakery.

and finally, I must show you my awesome new fingerless gloves, a birthday present from she who has the most fabulous taste I know, the gorgeous Bec. Any guesses what colour?

wishing you a week of yellow goodness.
more creative spaces, as always, at Kirsty's

Finished bunting...

Finished scarf... (only a year late!)

And the beginnings of something for sooz's swap... and four hours on a v/line train tomorrow night to make some progress on the rest. Bring on the long weekend!

Wrapped in Love: I Knit Brisbane

Hi knitters & crocheters!
Less than 17 weeks to go...

Some inspiration this week from Brisbane, where the 'I Knit Brisbane' project has ushered in the first days of winter (do they actually have winter in Brisbane?) by covering the city's landmarks in yarn. How amazing are these Brissie folk?!

Images from here, and here.

btw, you might be interested to know that 'Green Heart', or 'I heart BNE' is Brisbane City Council's environmental program, which has the target of being carbon neutral by 2026. They have all sorts of programs for households, schools and businesses in the Brisbane area. More info available from here.

I think it's really nice to see the link between healthy communities and a healthy environment.

Thanks Arathi & Geeta for sending through the links!

And don't forget the Melbourne crafting session is less than 2 weeks away!
Sunday 20th June, 2-4pm, Brunswick Green
For newbies there will be guaranteed friendly helpers to get you started!
