Knit­ting at a rate of knots

Central and North Burnett Times - - MT PERRY SHOW -

VAL Din­gle started the an­nual knit­ting com­pe­ti­tion at the Mt Perry Show in 2013.

“What you do is just make squares of 25 stitches and 46 rows,” Mrs Din­gle said.

“We had the first stitches cast on and ready.

“The first fin­ished gets the prize of a gift voucher from Spot­light.”

The knit­ters gath­ered in the bar area af­ter lunch to se­lect wool and nee­dles.

Mar­garet Jones was the first to fin­ish, with Gayle Bla­sic and Elsie Daniels purling off not far be­hind.

“Two or three came in within two or three stitches of each other,” Mrs Din­gle said.

“We had seven com­peti­tors this year – the same as last year, and 16 the first year.”

Mrs Din­gle will use the colour­ful squares knit­ted at the show to fin­ish a rug for do­na­tion to char­ity.
