August 2013 Knit & Natter with Special Guest Kate Just

We were lucky enough to be joined by Kate Just, a lovely Australian visual artist at our latest Knit and Natter meeting at Leon in Spitalfields. Kate is currently in the UK working on the Knit HOPE project, in which she invites knitters, such as ourselves, to join her in knitting a large banner made from neon and reflective materials and later march with the banner. To find out more, you can like KNIT HOPE on Facebook or have a look on Kate’s website.

Kate talks to Tina about the project

If this sounds like something you’d like to take part in, Kate will be running events throughout the UK – again have a look on the KNIT HOPE Facebook page for a list of upcoming events, including a stint at I Knit London and an event in Colchester.

Our next Knit & Natter will take place on the 10th of September at Leon, Spitalfields with a focus on the Innocent Big Knit – come along and join us! You can find the Facebook event here.
