Knit 1 Bike 1 Exhibition at Ayr’s Carnegie Library

March 20, 2017

Friday 31 March – Monday 10 April 2017

The story of Janet Renouf-Miller’s epic 818 mile cycling adventure around Scotland translated into knitting and crochet.

Janet has created knitted and crocheted art work inspired by what she saw on her travels including a Brompton folding bicycle like the one she used to get around Scotland, a strawberry sponge cake, the Isle of Mull ferry, several worms, caterpillars and a sheep’s head, the Isle of Skye, seals and lots more. Her biggest project is the 15 foot long crocheted Glenfinnan Viaduct. That’s the one featured in the Harry Potter movies!

This exhibition is on display in the non-fiction lending department of Carnegie Library, 12 Main Street, Ayr KA8 8EB.

Free admission.

Next of Kin Event at Symington Library

July 23, 2015

The Next of Kin event at Symington Libray proved very popular on Tuesday. While the library knit and natter group created beautiful poppies using felt and crochet, little fingers were busy exploring the WW1 handling kit from the Next of Kin touring exhibition. The children were fascinated by the keepsakes treasured by families, including letters and postcards sent home, medals sent by the government to next of kin and unique artefacts collected by troops as souvenirs.

Girvan Knit and Natter Group Go Green

Knitting and nattering at Girvan Library

Anna’s amazing recycled bags

Girvan Library have a new member of their Knitting and Nattering group who is taking recycling to a whole new level. Anna Waringe has been crocheting shopping bags made from old carrier bags and bin liners, much to the amazement of the group. We were not only amazed when we saw the bags, but ‘green’ with envy. We would love a bag like this to fill up with all our books and chocolate. Well done Anna for such an inventive way to recycle!

If you are intereseted in joining Girvan Library’s Knit and Natter group please contact Mary Stewart Tel. 01465 712831,  or drop into the library.
