This year the theme for the Guild of Machine Knitters competition was Childrens Books. We thought long and hard about what to do and in the end choose The Wizard of Oz. Nina was overall co-ordinator as Liz didn’t have time to chase everyone up. We met a few times to discuss what each of us was going to do and also to do some of the handwork and decide what else needed to be done. These meetings really helped when we got stuck for ideas about how to achieve the desired effect. Those doing the knitting this year were Nina, Sandra, Sheila, Sylvia and Liz. Sadly we didn’t win or even get a place this time. So we will just have to try again next year!
