The last time I saw my knitting friend, Anne, she invited me to join a Coffee Craft and Chat session at her house as part of an “Angel Extravaganza” . We would be knitting and trimming angels with Christmas messages, to be hidden in and around Ellington, Cresswell and Lynemouth.
I arrived at Anne’s today not really knowing what to expect, but found a house full of very busy women, enjoying a well-earned lunch break with tasty homemade soup, scones, cakes and biscuits (timed my arrival perfectly!) I managed to knit an angel, added a pair of spare wings (thanks to Anne’s neighbour, Jude) and had a thorough lovely afternoon. Everyone was great.
The local church had initiated the project locally and distributed patterns earlier in the year .You can find the pattern here http://www.christmasangel.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Christmas-Angel.pdf The knitters had been making angels ever since and over 500 have now been completed. I wonder where mine will end up?
