One thing that has taken up my time is making my annual donation to the parish Art and Craft Show. Each year I make a knitted throw, enter it, and if it sells, I forgo the 75% share of the proceeds and donate the lot to the parish funds. This makes up for the many times each year that I don't really help that much at Parish fundraising. (I rarely bake these days for example)
This year though, I knitted 2 throws...one to sell and one to raffle! Both are mohair and both use a simple slip stitch pattern and both were fun to knit!
The first one finished was the one to be raffled so we could pre-sell tickets...I called this one 'Memories of Marge' in honour of an elderly parishioner who passed away late last year. She had purchased my donated throw last year as well as one I made about 3 years ago.
And yesterday I handed over the second rug which will be arranged on display ready for a buyer at this weekend's Art Show!
This photo shows the back of the throw...it's just 'resting' after a light blocking...
More posts soon on all the other busy things I've been up to!
