Our 'Setting up and Running a Health-based Knitting Group' Pack is now available to those who download a Core Pack. You will be sent a link to the appropriate page which will contain all our specialist packs.

We have two new social groups added today, plus a new pattern donated by The Arran Knitting Company, so thank you to them. A link on our links page will take you to their website which has some great information on introducing knitting into the classroom.

I'm currently working from two computers as I make the leap from PC to Mac! This transition time is very frustrating though as some days my computers can 'see' each other over the network and sometimes they can't and it seems to be completely arbitrary!

Today has been great as being my birthday I've had a complete break from my computer problems, had coffee with my eldest son this morning then off for a few hours knitting with my group at the hospital plus of course some birthday cake. When I got home, youngest son had arranged a Happy Birthday sign in candles on the kitchen table, plus some more choccie cake. A good way to spend the day!

Thank you!

Thank you to all the wonderfully enthusiastic knitters who expressed an interest in setting up a knitting group and joining our iknitlinks network. It was great to meet you all at the I Knit London Weekend. We had a great time.

I've had a lot of difficulty getting my brain back down to earth today, having attended an international conference on Applied Art in Health and then travelled straight to the I Knit Weekend. My brain just wants to get on with doing wonderfully creative, colourful things, so having to think about research proposals has been really hard today!

The reaction to iknitlinks was wonderful so thank you for your support. We're looking forward to working with you.

Not long to go!

It's Saturday 5th September and we have less than a week before iknitlinks goes live. We'll be tweaking the website this weekend to make sure it looks good for everyone, whatever browser you use!

It's going to be a busy week ahead but we're looking forward to our launch at the I Knit London Weekend on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th. Why not come and say hello?

Look forward to seeing you there!
