Despite knitting since I was quite tiny, I still find it quite mind blowing to think that a strand of yarn can be twisted and turned in so many different ways and combinations to create just about anything.
With my garden now bursting into leaf and the birds in full song I thought it appropriate to share some knitted nature. These lovely creations are a tiny selection of the garden and mythical knitting figures that were on display at the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia last month. I only had my mobile phone camera on me so the photographs really don’t do justice to the quirky and imaginative creatures on display. However, everything brought a smile to my face, sparked a few ideas and I particularly loved the rather cheeky troll. Hopefully he and his friends will make it along to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace in the autumn and I will be sure to take a better camera along to capture all the woolly wonders.
