There is a crocheted disk pattern which I have and have started making. I think a plastic canvas disc on the top of knitted or crocheted elephants and turtle.
I'd love to design and make the disc map and circle sea and circumfence. :)

Assuming that the itinerararary has enough space, I could be persuaded to join in. I'm more of a happy hooker than a nit-wit, but I can do both.

Sounds like we're forming a Witch and Stitch group?

and there are lots of patterns for dish holders. where you can knit shapes in relief. just knit and purl squares for those who want something simple :) I can print what's needed but only in black and white.

For people who really want the basics, I can bring some plastic canvas and you can make a picture. Like needlepoint or tapestry but solid sewn with wool. You can frame them. I am making a money box at the moment.

Just need a tapestry needle or ANY needle with a large eye. and some double knitting of whatever colours you fancy. :)

I'll be the one knitting and walking, I've perfected it now. If only I could get the hang of knitting and driving, ah all those hours wasted :D

I can cross stitch quite well, crochet in a line (grandma taught me), but have no experience of knitting. Would love to join in though :-)
