What a wonderful day some of the Meaford Knitters had on Friday.
First Stop was the sock exhibition called The Homefront, at the Tom Tomson Gallery in Owen Sound. The curator did a marvellous job of displaying the hand knit socks in a creative, artistic way that paid tribute to the soldiers who wore them.
She made papier mache forms to insert in each sock - and given that we counted 93 pairs that was had one heck of a lot of papier mache. Then she hung every pair from a rod that she had carved and painted to look like double pointed needles.
There was a 'thank you ' list and Meaford Knitters Group was on the list.
After seeing The Homefront, there was a great lunch, some yarn shopping and the first ever experience of attending the 'store' at the Handspinners Association of Ontario's weekend seminar.
Fibre, fibre everywhere, all day long. Knitters to hang out with.
