Preston Guild - guerilla knitting

When I saw a plea for knitters to take part in Preston Guild in a secret project I just had to ask for details - well, you would, wouldn't you?  We all like the idea of secrets, after all.

So I enquired, and was told that knitters were needed to knit diamonds, many, many diamonds, which would be used for an installation in Preston's Avenham Park.

I received the pattern and began to knit.  We were encouraged to make our diamonds as original as we liked, providing we stuck to the size specified.  I decided to create a small bobble in the centre of all mine so that they would be tactile, and different if a visually impaired visitor touched them.

You can just about make them out in the emerald green ones in the centre.

A few of us got together on Wednesday for a few hours to sew them together.

The dark blue ones with the pale blue bobbles on this piece are also mine!

Watch this space to see what was done with them in the park:)
