October’s Close Knit

October’s Close knit took place the day after Halloween so we were just in time to start looking forward to Christmas! It was fantastic to see our numbers swelling as new and regular participants arrived to take part in this fun bauble making session. On arriving we spent some time looking at some of the beautiful wedding dresses on display in the fantastic ‘Something Blue’ exhibit with the gorgeous Vivienne Westwood blue and cream dress being a favourite.

It was lovely to see the WI’s beautiful crocheted poppies that were brought in to share with the group. What a poignant way to remember those who have been lost to war.

The pattern we used to make the baubles was a big hit with the knitters and everyone got quite far with it-we even had a couple completed during the session. Next session we will be developing the theme and moving on to some colour-work baubles. Hope you can make it!
