The Big Knit Blog- written by one of our young volunteers Aiden
Here at Erewash Museum, we have contributed to World Wide Knit in Public Day again this year. Our event was dedicated to knitting for peace with blankets being produced to send around the world.
People from all ages came to the event, those that were experienced or those who just wanted to learn;
they also helped to make the event possible. The people that came along also came to have fun and chat with each other but they also wanted to help support the cause.
By 1pm 23 knitters had already taken part in the event and there were still a few hours of the event
left. Everyone who contributed had an enjoyable time socialising whilst knitting. Some of the people there were just starting to learn so they got tips from others that knew what they were doing. The blanket looked very colourful and aesthetically pleasing to look at.
