You may or may not know that Sirdar is currently hosting a Knitalong. If you haven’t come across this term before, a Knitalong is when lots of people all knit the same item at the same time, usually within a set time frame. This may happen in an organised knitting group – often for charity – or you can join in with one online and knit along with other members of a website such as Ravelry.com.
The Sirdar knitalong involves knitting some of the animals from Noah’s Ark. And of course being Noah’s Ark you have to knit two of each!
Patterns 1 and 2 are already available and number 3 is released today – 16th October. The first pattern was for Molly and Mickey a pair of cheeky monkeys. Anne and Lesley knitted one each. Lesley knitted hers with the suggested yarn, Sirdar Baby Bamboo – available from our website – while Anne used an alternative yarn to show that you can use something else if you want to. Our cheeky monkeys made a break for freedom the other day and we found them hanging around in a tree outside the shop……………..
Pattern 2 is for Eddie and Ellie Elephant. Lesley again is knitting hers in the suggested Sirdar Baby Bamboo, while Anne and Donna have collaborated on the second one using Mirasol Paqua Pura. We haven’t quite finished them yet but here you can see they are coming along nicely………………..
