Latitude 2011

Last weekend we took the Keep & Share Knitting Tent to the lovely Latitude festival near Southwold. As well as plying our wares, we taught loads of people to knit and crochet and ran a communal knitting project (mentioned in the very first paragraph of the Guardian’s Latitude review). The idea was to knit ‘ribbons’ (narrow strips of knitting), with each one knitted by lots of different people. We asked people to knit or crochet as much or as little as they liked, and then to leave a message for the next knitter.

At the end of the festival, we had lots of knitted ribbons! Despite the rain, we had a great time and I’d like to thank Lily, Sarah, Steph, Rhian and Deb for their hard work as members of the knitting team.

A few of the ribbons were intriguingly shaped…

What next? Well, we’ll be continuing the same project at Green Man and End of the Road festivals during the summer, then I’ll turn all the ribbons into something – as yet top secret. Keep following the blog to find out what!
