Our knitted bunting project is going brilliantly! With a pile of gorgeous-but-wobbly woolly triangles already made, we're now smoothing things out with the magic art of blocking.

Mostly making: knitted bunting

We've swapped our embroidery needles for the soothing clackety clack of knitting needles this week - and have been busily spending our evenings knitting triangles to make knitted bunting. The plan? To festoon our stand at next months' Stitch & Craft Show with some lovely homespun decor! We'll hosting The Making Spot lounge at London Olympia at the show, and can't wait. We're using Amanda Jones' Quick Knit Party Bunting pattern (first seen in Simply Knitting's Royal Wedding Supplement), & swapped the colours from red, white & blue to The Making Spot's colour palette.

Knit a mini village!

 house

Ooooh we're very excited as just found out about a massive knit-along project that's taking part this spring! Knit the Nation is seeing knitters everywhere getting together to create a miniature knitted village. The finished village is going to be on display at this year's Stitch & Craft Show - with prizes for the best knits! We're busy getting our thinking caps on for what to make... lamp-posts? post boxes? dogs? trees? oooh or how about a knitted pond? If you want to join in but aren't sure where to start, read on to find out where to get some free knitting patterns to get started!
