Our recent Commonwealth knitaglong went stormingly. There were lots of knitters taking part and they have produced some gorgeous results. Check out the conversation on Ravelry – they were/are a really chatty bunch and happy to share all their skills, ideas, hints and tips.
Anna joined us on the knitalong too – here’s a picture of her knitting at the Commonwealth Games themselves!!
I had a small problem though in that the skein of yarn I chose just wasn’t long enough – by quite a long way. Thankfully, Sadie (whiteheart on Ravlery) had had a similar problem so created a spreadsheet to we could all work out how much more we had to knit and therefore how much more yarn we’d need. I decided to change yarns at the point where the fish tail pattern for the edging starts (same place Sadie did) and it worked really well – Thanks Sadie! 🙂

And finally, an honourary mention for Alessandra (PokedaGoblin on Ravelry) for her Hydrangea scarf with which she won first prize at the Worcester show on 17 August. Well done Alessandra – you are a P/Hop stalwart and we love you! x
