A morning at Knitch in Paddington...

On Tuesday It was the monthly Knit and Natter at Knitch, a delightful yarn store in Paddington. 



When we arrived at the store and walked to the area set aside for K4BN, on the table were all these beautifully knitted teddies in all different colours. 

Anissa, the owner of Knitch, informed us that the bears were for K4BN and they had been knitted by a customer and other ladies who live in the same complex as her. Anissa also told us that the ladies were already knitting another lot for the group and to expect around the same number of teddies next time. Such generosity! 
Every month that I go to this store, there is always something new to admire...
The crocheted rhino has been joined by some other crocheted toys, including a giraffe made with African Flower motifs. Anissa has classes to make these items. 

Since my last visit, the front fence has been 'yarn bombed' (decorated with knitting/crocheting)...




Helen was also photographing the front fence :-)

Helen is one of the 2 ladies who organised and ran the group's Mothers Day Raffle...a great effort, Helen and Marlene, and well over $700 raised for K4BN's work with the needy! 
These stools have had the seats covered with a piece of knitting...all from classes. They look great!!

We are a small group at Paddington but a very productive one...well not so much from me just now but I'm working at getting back into 'full production'! Lol

Wow Maria I'm knocked out by all that creativity on needles. Such gorgeous work. All those teddies are lovely too. I do like those knitted seat covers as well.
Thanks for showing that fabulous fence too :D)

Nice to put a face to Helen, who did so much hard work helping to organise the raffle with Marlene. Love the yarn bombed fence!

Love the fence - what an effort!
I'm sure those little teddies will find a very welcoming home.
