Crafty Airstreamers

Last weekend at the fourth UKAirstreamers Gathering near Ludlow we had the first 'Unhitch and Stitch on the Sunday' afternoon. There was some knitting going on, and some exchanging of techniques. I learnt how to cast on with my thumb and other crafties who had forgotten how to knit, had their memories jogged.

I got engrossed in teaching four young Airstreamers how to make sock creatures. Alice and Will had to go home before finishing so I hope I'll be getting photos of their creatures sometime. Jordan and Rory weren't in a hurry, as this is their farm, and they each managed to make a creature in one afternoon. Check them out! Aren't they brilliant?

There is much more about the completely fabulous time we had at our UKAirstreamers Gathering on our other blog, Pete And Tracey On The Road.

Love the sock critters! The bunting you made looks wonderful too.Looks like the weather was kind to you guys. That makes all the difference!
We spent the weekend at the Airstream park. Our circle' D' had a spaghetti and meat balls evening. About thirty people attended and then we spent the evening by a circle D's campfire talking about our dogs. The air is starting to crisp up but the sun was out and we had a lovely evening meeting all our new airstream friends. Life is good!
