"Knit a rag run with giant needles"
was what the poster said and that's exactly what we did!!
The needles were broom handles so you can imagine how big they were
and there were boxes of fabric, wool, leather, net, carrier bags, wire flex and a washing line, in fact you name it and it was there.
The hardest part was getting started but after the first row, depending what you were using, it was quite easy and we spent the day knitting away and at the end we had a small rag rug,
mine measured about 24" x 18" so you can see just how big the needles were.
It was really good fun, this one was knit with washing line and string
and there's lots of different textures in this one.
At the end we were asked if we'd leave them to go in an exhibition or we could take them home if we wanted to, I left mine.
Sadly last week my sister's cat Rosie died she was 16 and had suddenly taken ill, Julie had started a tapestry many moons ago of two cats so she decided to finish it
aw, how sweet is that?
It looks like they're both wearing tiara's.
I backed it with some pale green blanket to make into a cushion for her.
This will be the first time since I was little that we haven't had a cat in the family and it seems so strange not to have a furry ball wrap itself around your leg as you walk past or a furry cuddle. Rosie had a lovely life and will be missed by all of us.
