Knit 1 Bike 1 update

I set off on the Knit 1 Bike 1 project on 29th June 2015. The recent Kickstarter campaign was not successful but I want to make sure everyone knows that this project will go ahead regardless. I am looking at other funding options meanwhile and here is a Paypal button if anyone would like to support the project. I would be most grateful.

A new adventure - Knit 1 Bike 1

As some of you will know, I am setting off to cycle round Scotland on 29th June this year.  I will be knitting and crocheting what I see on the way and the whole thing will result not only in a book but an exhibition of the work I produce. 

On the way, I will be meeting lots of people and delivering wee talks about the trip and FREE mini workshops on knitting and crochet.  I hope to include details of other textile artists around Scotland in the book. 

The itinerary is coming along nicely and can be seen on my Create With Fibre blog.  Do follow my progress on the Create With Fibre blog if you can...
I have started a Kickstarter funding campaign and have a month to raise the funds to enable me to write the book and carry out the necessary work for the project.  Here's hoping!  Meanwhile here are a few photos. 
My 12 year old Brompton folding bicycle - i am cycling round Scotland on it.  Brompton have re-furbished it and it will go on a bus if i get stuck.
