My knitting group is branching out into other crafts as we are all crafty and creative at heart rather than diehard knitters.
Our first project started with nice mugs of tea, yummy biscuits and busy hands cutting (and taking photos)
We all mucked in for the preparation of lots of triangles with each finding their niche in folding, drawing and cutting.
Then we each set to work to create a row of bunting and it was lovely to see the different approaches to designing the pattern and spacing along the ribbon. Our host started in the middle with a symmetrical pattern and 2 finger widths between each piece while our artist participant kept the triangles touching and graded from dark to light. Really nice to see that each of us set off with a plan and that each was totally different.
Then through the sewing machine on a nice big zig zag stitch and we each had a length of bunting – here is mine – the triangle that look white are actually cream with fawn dots.
Bunting was a perfect collective project as we could all help in the preparation and having 4 of us taking part meant we could use more different patterns.
