The combination of the Nocturne art festival and our knit-a-thon was a great way to spend a Saturday evening. It was fun to see how different Barrington Street in downtown Halifax was, transformed by excited crowds discovering art displays and new ways to look at the city.

Thanks to our knitters, we have 26 blanket squares and counting. We’ll be happy to collect any more you are working on, right up until November 20th.

We saw a number of familiar faces during the evening, and many new faces … people who probably wouldn’t normally come into a yarn shop. Mimi, Morgan and Karla spinning in the front window were a real draw though.

Thank you to everyone who contributed some knitting! We’ll give another update later on once we’ve sent all of the donated items off.
