as although its been quiet for a bit – we’re well rested and ready to stitch 2011.
On the cards are more craft sessions at times that should suit all and hopefully in location that will be convenient as well J

Well, we had a lovely knit in King George Square yesterday. This was a part of the World Wide Knit In Public Day Good chats, nice coffee and absolutely perfect weather and of course, lots of knitting and even some hand spinning! The next planned KIP will be next month so keep posted for more info if you are up for an afternoon of knitting with like minded people. (Although we will pick somewhere with a grassy patch!) Keep up the good knitting!
1pm King George Square – bring along your needles!
The knitted and crocheted garden is being reinstalled today along with the many mushrooms!!
it’s going somewhere you can look closer at it
I Knit Brisbane has been a wonderful experience for all the knitters of Brisbane and surrounding area who participated in this giant community project. The best part, or the reward, is truly getting to show off your work. Having said that, all participants were made aware that every piece contributed is considered “usable art” and could be nicked in the middle of the night. However, the giant glove was a BIG part of the ‘i knit brisbane project’, something to stand tall and colourful in the CBD. Unfortunately, it is gone from the Eagle street hand statue. If you have heard where this glove has moved to, can you help us by letting us know any helpful or relevant information (it can be anonymously!). We would like the art to be displayed for at least 3 or 4 weeks. Please email iknitbrisbaneATgmail.com
A huge thank you to all the amazing creative people who were involved – installation night went well and now we have a city wrapped in yarn!
stay tuned for pictures…or sneak a peek on the facebook page
