Half Way There!

With a further twenty seven strips added to the banister at the Manchester Craft and Design Center yesterday, we're half way around the first floor!

And with another four months left to run on the project we'd like to ask for your help in covering the whole of the hand rail and really crowing the glory of your marvelous work.

And we give our most gracious appreciation and gratitude to all those new and continuing contributors who are making this exciting work possible. You're amazing and this really is your project.

Strips were installed yesterday by:

  • Kimberley Harwood from London
  • Martin Bowcock from Northern Quarter, Manchester
  • Marie Pattison, from Manchester and the Kings Arms Knitting Club
  • Joanne Columbine from Ramsbottom, Lancashire

And a very special thanks to OKADASCAT from Hartlepool who sent another seven strips to the stupendous amount she has already rock kidder!

Crocheted flowers and a ladybird by Marie Pattison.

An amazing orange bow by Marion Reed - which I particularly liked as it matched the orange laces in my trainers!
