I Knit, You Knit, We All Knit

If you live in London you're bound to have heard of the Innocent Village Fete which has been running for the past couple of years - you may even have been along. The posters for this year's festivities - on 2nd & 3rd August - are up in the Underground and all over town but for the uninitiated, Innocent is a fruit juice/smoothie company who have started up a summer 'village fete' styled event in Regents Park, with a good-olde-days-of-yore vibe. Hence all the welly-wanging, morris dancing and ukulele playing.

The charming chaps over at I Knit will be running a knitting tent there over the weekend and yours truly has signed up to teach knitting to the unsuspecting public on the Sunday. I've never tried to teach anyone to knit before so I'm slightly nervous but I'm sure Gerard and co will have plenty of instructions and tips. So if you find yourself over there, do pop by the tent and say hello. And if you've always wanted to give knitting a go but didn't know where to start, here's your chance. Plus the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain are playing that day and you haven't heard Smells Like Teen Spirit until you've heard it played on 8 ukuleles...
