Mystery Object Revealed!

August 09 2008 – thisisknit

And the why? Why, for the Electric Picnic of course! Once again, knitting will feature at the festival and this time around we are going to be in the very chilled Body & Soul area. We will be running "learn to knit" workshops and also having an open "sit and knit" area for anyone who wants to just do a few stitches and escape the festival madness for a while. We are pencilled in to occupy a space in the Chill Out Tent but, if we can bring along a decent size gazebo or marquee of our own then they will give us some dedicated space. Anyone have one spare?!?! Wherever we end up though we would like to decorate it with some quirky knitted items and these fish seem just the trick. If you have 15 mins and some scrap yarn then we will happily take as many of these in from volunteer knitters as possible. It's all about making an impact! We will also take in knitted flowers as (if the sun graces us with its presence) we would also like to have a knitted flower garden area outside the marquee. Aquarium inside, flower garden outside... make sense? No? Does it have to? ;) Edit: Credit for this particular bunch o' fishes goes to Mary L. Thanks Mary!

    What a great project! I’m new to knitting and am always on the lookout for new patterns to try. The site I linked to is great for beginner knitters who want to learn now to knit and are willing to watch how to videos.

    Hi Lisa! These guppies are so cute! I can offer you my gazebo, it’s of a regular decent size and I would be more than happy to lend it to you! By the way, are there any places left? :)))
