An Autumn Event and Knit Bombing @ Manor Park
This weekend I took part in a Knit bombing and craft event at Manor Park. It was so good to see the communal green space being used by locals and people sharing skills and selling produce/work. The event was set up by Laura Lewis a local resident and visual merchandising Wiz / Lecturer, She teamed up with a local cafe in the park to promote and organise it all. Dilly Knit was there with her work and she also produced a lot of the knit and baubles for the knit bomb event. Quaggy Waterways Action Group who are working to restore the waterways in the area. It was really interesting to hear about all the work they had done so far on urban spaces, there is so much wildlife in the area too. British Wool week, so nice to contriubute to the awareness and celebrate something the UK does very well. All my yarns were from Yorkshire!
