Part One: Knitted scenery - that's one step further along the path started by The Killing, I reckon. See this page for how to get involved with this innovative idea at Harrogate Theatre. (Knitted leaves seem to have been very popular, but for interest they're surpassed by the knitted fireworks and knitted body parts...)
Part Two: Age UK's Bobble Day 2013 will be on the 8th Feb, so make sure you pay your £2.00 and go along to work in something woolly that day. Hmm, I think I can manage that.
