Michelle's Knitted Car
Elizabeth and our Michelle
Jen and Sharon
As well as knitting, Elizabeth also brought her Crochet which attracted a lot of attention
Good Friends enjoying a bit of stitchin'
The hall where we first gathered soon got full, people of all shapes and sizes attended
Shauna learned how to knit just for today
Me and My sister Shauna
Michelle, Anne, Nina, Shauna, Jen, Sharon and Elizabeth
we moved to the stands in Hyde Park to get ready to break the record .. but it was freezing!
to keep the knitters entertained there was a live band, dog show and a reenactment
people from all over Ireland attended and even from around the world - there was even a lady there in her 100th year!
we may not have had the comfort as Oregon had when they broke the record back in 2009(above), but we had what the Irish always have heart, soul and craic!
To find out if we broke the record, watch the video below
above Michelle after being told that we are the new record holders
with the organiser Michelle, she is a lovely person
once finished, we decided to stop at a cafe for lunch
here we learnt more about each other like:
1. Not to get on the bad side of Anne ;)
2. That Jen could kick us around the place
3. That Michelle plans on winning the next tour de France
4. Elizabeth has been in the middle of floods, snow storms and unimaginable heat (not all at once, we hope!)
5.Shauna doesnt like school and plans on coming to the stitch group weekly now
6.Sharon was a teenage drinker ;)
7.and Me? ..... now that would be telling! ;)
after a lovely dinner we all crossed the road to Mrs Kelly's sweet shop
"look shes knitting" ... yes Michelle now put the sugar down and step away ;)
A big thank you to all the ladies, I had a lovely day with you, also Thank you Jen and Elizabeth for coming through at the last minute and driving us :)
