Just wondering if those from the UK have come across Street Life yet? It is free to register and you are located by your postcode and can get/add local information on the group.
I found my Ballroom Dancing Lessons that way, recommended a Chimney Sweep and have been to a new Knitting Group in a local community library.
In the knitting group they are making sheep for the Knitivity for a local church. The church are after around 60 sheep!! The photo of 12 are the ones I met on my first visit to the group.
I am on my 4th at present, my Mother kindly sent me some wool and the correct size needles as my first was with bigger needles and too thick wool! It is rather a chubby sheep and one I won't be able to part with.
Here are all the component parts before being stitched up. This Eco 100% undyed virgin wool can tend to split whist sewing but is the closest to sheep colour and texture really.
I have got together a basket of supplies so I can knit in front of the TV as well as at my craft table, which is sunny in the daytime. These sheep are SO cute.
