A Belated Happy Wool Week - Rochdale's Knitty Gritty

Of course, I should have wished you Happy Wool Week yesterday - particularly since I was out inspecting Herdwick sheep on the Lakeland fells. I hear there is such a thing as yarn bombing - the equivalent of grafitti in woolwork - which is carried out by Deadly Knitshade and Knitmare Before Christmas... so if you run into a telephone box with a knitted cosy, you will now know whodunnit! If you live near Rochdale and are looking for a friendly knitting group, then you need go no further than the award winning Touchstones Art Centre in Rochdale. There you will find a soul group to hunker munker with and get down to the old knitty gritty with your own projects - the group meets on the last Tuesday of every month from 2pm - 3.30pm and the next date for your diary is 26th October. Membership is free!
