THE Knitted Car

I know it's been ages
almost four weeks
but I've been busy knitting
squares and little sheeps

We've been knitting the squares
in cream and green tones
to cover my car
for the Easter parade float

It seemed like a great
idea at the time
but a few days ago
I was starting to whine

When the car looked like this

I started to fret
But my lovely knitting ladies
all came out to help

After weeks of knitting
and gathering the squares,
hours of sewing
and pulling out my hair

It slowly came together
piece by piece

 until eventually
we ended up with this !

I drove the car in the Easter parade
The response I got just made my day
Thank you so much to everyone who helped
You're totally amazing it has to be said!

If you wish to join us
for knitting some time
We meet ever Friday
In Gleesons at 10

Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep stitching!
