Lots of interest from visitors to the library and lots of stories about how people (mostly men) learnt to knit.
I would love to hear your stories of how you learnt to knit too!
People still joining the project and we are giving knitting patterns out at the library for people to make work to add to it.
Big thanks to all who helped today!!

Just a few last minute bits and bobs to do and spent a lot of yesterday making a base for the pond, a trug and sewing lots of flowers on to stems. Still more flowers to put together but an easy job to do - but would appreciate any offers of help for this.
2 new people joined yesterday as they had only just heard about the project and would have been busy making all winter if they had known. But they are going to make as much as they can in the last 2 weeks before we open. Welcome Sue and Lyn.
Any work that is being delivered can just be left in my porch. Invites for collection are there - help yourselves.
I am not posting more photos now as would like to have some surprises for you all!
