Sheffield Knitting Groups

What a wonderful weekend - I was warmly welcomed by the Stocksbridge Knit and Chat group who were really enthusiastic about contributing to the html patchwork and have incorporated the hexagon into the design of their new 'Chat' page. (I've added the link to this blog).

I also had a lovely cuppa with a group of knittings pals in Sheffield. They meet informally at each others houses. Only a fraction of knitters are online - which shows what a massive activity it is. Hopefully the patchwork will provide an opportunity for people from the different groups in Sheffield to meet each other.

Programmers at Access Space have also been busy over the weekend. James has developed the code to generate the patchwork template. Keith is working out how to make this interactive so that people can show which patches they are working on. At the moment we are planning to link each patch to a wiki page that people can upload their photos and links to. But it's not as simple as it sounds.
