Knitted Christmas!

I can not believe that it's just TWO weeks until the big day, and i've still yet to complete my shopping let alone wrap any of it. 

Today, I spent the day catching up with my very good friend from Uni with a hot chocolate and good natter. We had intended to visit some local exhibitions in the hope of feeling inspired to get back into the swing of drawing, although ended up picking up some extra Christmas bargains. 

We visit The Forum Library which is currently home to this beautiful knitted tree. Each and every section was knitted by a team of 600 local people with such love and care. The tree included almost 2,000 wonderful little knitted decorations from snowflakes to puddings and presents to angels. I particularly love this little crafted Santa Claus, complete with knitted sack. The tree has so far raised an amazing 10,000 pounds for John Grooms Court, a local residential care home for young, disabled adults. It's a fantastic cause and this Christmas tree is definitely worth a visit, and donation towards the charity, if you are in the area.
