Time for (knitted) tea! At this year’s Spring Knitting & Stitching show an all knitted and crocheted afternoon tea competition took place in partnership with Betty Blythe Vintage Tea Rooms. This year we challenged our lovely visitors to knit or crochet any item that would be found in a traditional English tea room.

We would like to thank everyone who entered the competition at the show and hope you enjoyed making your entries! The very talented crochet blogger Sarah-Jayne Fragola and our resident yarn doctor Bronagh Miskelly had a hard job judging. We are pleased to announce three well-deserved winners…

In first place is Elena Muscardini and friends for their stunning afternoon tea creation.

In second place is Susi Jones with her fun tea cosy.

In third place is Claire Chapman with this scrumptious looking birthday cake.
