Very exciting news today for anybody who has ever fancied knitting their own string bag! Dawn at Rattling on and I have decided to host a knit a long together and we are hoping that you will want to join us. We have created a list of links to some fantastic free patterns (see the side bar) please feel free to let us know of any others and we'll add those too!
If you would like to have a go just email either of us with:
- Your name,
- Your blog name (this is so we can list participants on the side bar - if you don't have a blog but would like to go on the list just let us know and we will just list your name with no link!)
- The pattern you will be trying and whether you are happy or not to help other people who are struggling (are you happy for us to pass on emails to you?)
The sign up lasts until Feb 28th and knitting commences on March 1st. We will be having weekly String-a-long Mondays where we will show our progress and answer any questions that we have received, everyone needs to try to complete their bag by 29th March 2010.
We have set up a flickr group (click on String-a-long badge to go there) and we would love you all to post photo's of your work in progress and on completion. Lets see if we can create a wonderful rainbow of gorgeous hand-knitted reusable bags!
