So, what do you do when you suddenly have a free Saturday?

You ask friends that you haven't seen for months to join you for coffee and it seems such a good idea that your friend asks a group of his friends to join up for coffee and before you know it you have a gaggle of spinners and stitchers at the local art gallery cafe :-)

We got there to find that the cafe had already been yarn bombed by the local school. Check out the spelling of guerrilla...conjures up some image of monkeys knitting!

and swiftly set up wheels and a drum carder, drop spindles appeared out of bags and 3 versions of the same shawl made an appearance.

It was good, a real buzz that made people stop and watch, even come in and find what we were doing. A few new recruits for Ravelry and possibly even one for ourselves...we can work on that one.

It is a good idea. And children are handy.

Looks like lots of fun Sue and I love the Guerilla knitting.

Looks like fun, and might (almost) inspire me to get my spinning wheel going again...almost!! I look forward to free saturdays, but now I can't decide if I will make glass or lace!!
