Guerilla Knitters - Fabulous


Knitting keeps turning up over night on the Pier at Saltburn by the Sea.  What a fabulous time someone (or a Group) must be having.

Here is a snippet from the above article link:-

"What's the point, though? "It's about making people smile and bringing art out of the galleries so everyone can appreciate it," is the comment of Magda Sayeg, one of the world's most revered guerrilla knitters.
Although we are not able to reveal the identity of the Saltburn yarn bombers we can confirm from a reliable source that this particular piece is the work of more than one individual and it has captivated everyone who has seen it."
It was mentioned on Daytime TV this morning and commented that it was "very British".  If you are in the area go and have a look.


Perfect Knit - Easter Bunny Sweater in Peter Pan Sweet Heart

This is the perfect sweater for Easter.  Knitted in Peter Pan Sweet Heart yarn, leaflet number P1120 the design is also on the reserve.  We feel this would be a super Easter gift for that "special little person". ( sorry its not in adult sizes!)

Happy Knitting.
