More prep work on the JUST SO! sculpture has taken place in the studio thi sweek. I have started padding out the letters for the sculpture and I couldn't resist sewing on one or two little crocheted flowers to get an idea of how the sculpture will come together.

Thank you :o)

Here are some photos of some beautifully knitted flowers, leaves and bugs that have been sent in to the ArtYarn studio.

Many thanks to Stephanie who has knitted some lovely, bright flowers for the collaborative Just So! sculpture..

And thank you to Edna who has knitted a range of flowers, leaves and a charming little lady bird - they will look brill on the sculpture too!

Knit a leaf....

Here is a great link for a lovely little knitted leaf pattern.. and it's completely free!!
If you have just started knitting it's a great little project to learn some new techniques and to try something a little different.

We'd love to decorate the collaborative sculpture with loads of pretty woolly leaves. You could use this pattern to knit a leaf, and try out lots of different shades of green, brown, red and even white if you wish. Then, send it along to us or bring it to the festival if you are coming along too :o)

More floral delights!

We have loads more flowers and leaves to add to the collaborative JUST SO! sculpture, and we're busy making even more. We have also roped in the ever eager Kings Arms Knitting Club  (from Salford, Lancashire) to lend a hand and we have received some beautiful  woolly leaves, flower and bugs in the post too - all of which we will photograph in the studio this week and share with you here.

For now, heres a few shots of the flowers we have been creating...
