a knitting success!

our first World Wide Knit in Public Day went off without a hitch - phew!  We had around 20 people join us for morning tea and had a great time knitting and chatting the day away.  By the end of the day we had enough squares to knit three blankets, so added to those received prior to Saturday and those received since, means we have enough squares to knit 7 blankets!  As well as knitting, we had a special visit from Marion Wheatland of Spinning a Yarn who gave a lovely spinning demonstration (and I can tell you that my interest in learning to spin is only getting stronger after seeing her samoyed yarn - yep, you can make socks from puppies too!)
We've had lots of enquiries from people asking if they can still drop squares to us and the answer is 'yes please!'  As long as you knit them, we'll take them and forward them to Save the Children.
A huge 'thank you' goes out to everyone who got involved :)
...and please keep on knitting!

click clack!
