Warm cuddles for Petone

We had loads of fun on Saturday! If you came here via the Dom Post, we didn't do the tripod leg warmers (very cool though) and they have their dates wrong - we've already been out knit tagging.

Most of what we put up on Saturday is still there, so you can always follow the knit graffiti from the bus stop outside ANZ on Jackson St down to Holland Road Yarn Company :D

International Yarn Bombing Day

International Yarn Bombing day is so close! How did that happen?

Grand plans required!

We're going to step out and give the lamp posts of Jackson St, Petone, a bit of a woolly cuddle. We'd love for you to join us!

What: Knit Graffiti expedition

When: 1pm, Saturday 11 June

Where: meet at Holland Road Yarn Company, 281 Jackson St, Petone

With: a darning needle, some scissors, and any suitable knitted item(s) to tag with. This may be a scarf, thrifted blanket, strangely shaped thing you gave up knitted years ago, or waylaid peggy squares. If you want to specifically knit something, rectangles about 20 - 40 stitches wide are the way to go.

See you on Saturday!

Wellywood - or wouldn't

Well, latest word on the street is that Wellington Airport is pulling back on the idea of the 'Wellywood' sign, and are putting together a panel to decide the best way forward.

There is a plot afoot in OutdoorKnit towers to put together our own idea of what should go on the hill - and all will be revealed at Handmade on Sunday.

Want to take part? You can join us for free if you are taking a Handmade class over the weekend, or a teeny wee $5 will get you into the knit lounge if that is your thing. But you should check out the classes - there is a crazy huge range to choose from and i'm sure it will be a blast.

If you'd like to be prepared, we are after second hand knit or crochet blankets to form the base of our installation - so hunt through your wardrobes, garages, laundry cupboards and op shops and join us for some fun!

Oh and if you like knitty secrets, Knitsch has just opened up her secret yarn club!
