Guest blog: Totterdown’s Woolly Wonderland – Everything you need to know!

10 Oct

Hi! We hope you are all well and, if you’re already involved in our fun little project, enjoying knitting away for the Woolly Wonderland!

If you’ve not heard of us, then here’s the score. We are a group of local knitters and crocheters, and we’ve got a fun plan – to decorate Totterdown with knitting and crochet for the Front Room art trail on 18th – 20th November 2011. The Arnos Vale Charitable Trust have also asked us to make a knitting and crochet trail using the trees in the cemetery for Front Room weekend. We are planning a nature theme.

Over the art trail weekend we’ll have knitting, tea and cake at a house in Totterdown. Don’t worry if you can’t knit or don’t have wool, we can help, and children are very welcome too.

We are making 15cm squares and 15cm wide strips of knitting or crochet, and knitted or crocheted flowers and animals. These will be placed on the trail in the cemetery, and also used to decorate the streets of Totterdown. Please bring anything you make to one of our gatherings or send them to us – you can get in touch via this blog, or, email, or phone 07791 983040.

Phew! Now that’s all out of the way, this is just a wee note to tell you that between now and the Front Room weekend (November 18 to 20) we will be meeting TWICE a week – once in the day time, and once in the evening.

We’ll be at the Pieran Centre Cafe in Arnos Vale cemetery every Sunday from 1pm to 3.30pm, and at The Oxford pub in Oxford Street, Totterdown, every Monday, from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

Do come along!

If you need some inspiration, here are some lovely flowers that Laura made for the project. We think they’re gorgeous!

See you soon we hope,

Hannah, Rosee and Violetta xxx
