In addition to the overwhelming craziness of this month it's also a big month for me knitting-wise. And not because I'm actually making any progress on my projects (were that were the case!), but because there have been a lot of knit-y reasons for me to get out of the city.
Knitters from all around Basingstoke and farther afield came together in support of St. Michael's Hospice with the plan to knit squares for a blanket in a single day.
Many had also knit squares in advance of coming to the Big Knit, so there were lots on hand and it soon there were two people assembling the squares into blankets while others knit on!
It was a terrific day to spend some time knitting, meeting new folk, and helping such a worthy cause.
All in all, the BBK had over 75 knitters participate and ended up with almost 400 squares! That's a good number of lap blankets for the hospice! Well done girls!
Quick update: Catherine has blogged about the event and has more pictures here. Enjoy!
