Poppies in the Park on Display

All loaded up and ready to go It was a lovely sunny day for the installation of Poppies in the Park in Rowntree Park, York.

Me and the installation…

Gigantic red poppy under construction Since our last workshop we've been sorting out poppies. And including all big & small poppies - it's official - there's a thousand. (Loud fanfare please.) How fantastic is that - and rather more than expected! We've had to make our poppy twice as gigantic and had to enlist extra help (thanks so much Helen, Kate & Lily for attaching hundreds of poppies!) So here's just a sneaky peek at what to expect ... Gigantic poppies - above and below - knitted…

Poppies in the Park go to Rowntree Park Reading Cafe, York

Poppies in the Park Workshop at Rowntree Park Reading Cafe This was our final Poppies in the Park workshop - we had a mix of new people and regular supporters which was great. There was both knitting and stitching going on, not to mention a group of serious finger knitters and some who were trying it out for the first time. An impressive 10 metres of finger knitting was created (and some more was handed out as homework - thank you in advance to Helen H. and Sam for that!) We were very busy…

Marie, Jose, Edna & Doreen - Fairfax Court Yarnstormers (Thanks too, to Maureen who has also been knitting poppies but couldn't join us for the picture) Today I went along to join the Fairfax Court Yarnstormers to collect all their hard work. They have been knitting for the Poppies in the Park project and have been very prolific. I collected 378 poppies (217 white poppies + 161 red poppies). How impressive is that! (Jose confided that she had knitted 300 which is quite a feat.) White poppies…

Extreme Knitting Continues with a Giant White Poppy

Extreme knitting in progress - and now I have proper end stoppers on my needles thanks to Andy! You may know that extreme knitting is a hobby of mine. And you may also know that I've already knitted a giant red poppy. Well - now I've also knitted a giant white poppy. It's 1m in diameter and it took 1.36 kg of yarn made from cut up white sheets (which took a very long time to cut up!!). 890g ball & 470g ball of extreme yarn - it took both balls! More facts - the black centre is aproximately…

Poppies in the Park go to Tesco

Today was our first workshop in Voluntary Arts Week and we were celebrating getting creative in the Community Room at the Tesco Store, Tadcaster Road, York. We had a representative join us from the Acomb Craft Group. Remember the lovely things they did for the first yarnstorming event in Rowntree Park. Doreen managed to get both felted and knitted poppies made! (So did Heather - how speedy is that!) Sue took up the challenge of big knitting and now both big knit red and white poppies only…

Poppies in the Park Workshop at the Golden Ball York

The first Poppies in the Park workshop was at the Golden Ball pub in York on Tuesday. It was a busy night and we took over two rooms. It was quite a night for stitching - possibly because we had gatecrashed the UFO (UnFinished Objects) Group's regular night and had a contingent from Sew Chatty join us too. You may remember the fantastic yarnstormed horse that the UFO Group created and the beautiful flower garland that Sew Chatty made at our first yarnstorming event in Rowntree Park. White…
