In case you’ve been living under a rock (or somewhere other than a cricket playing nation), tomorrow begins six weeks of one day international cricket!!!!! And culminating with
Australia the best country taking away the Cricket World Cup.
It’s set to be a cracking 6 weeks and it kicks off tomorrow with Australia v England at the MCG. And what goes hand in hand with cricket watching?
The Knit Before Wicket group on Ravelry has a Cricket World Cup craft-along.
1) the item(s) needs to be started during the World Cup
2) the item(s) need to be finished before the end of the World Cup
3) it has to be some way cricket related or themed.
Some of the projects that people are suggesting are just awesome! There’s plans for jumpers in Aussie colours, some Black kiwi socks, and even a designer who is making a cricket vest inspired cabled scarf.
Me? I received the 8th Doctor yarn from YarnvsZombies and it’s perfect!!!!! Not only from a Doctor Who perspective, but it’s green and gold with sparkly flecks.
So I shall be casting on a shawl tomorrow, while watching the cricket.
If anyone else wants to join in the fun look out for us on Ravelry, plus on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #CWCcraftalong.
Personally I just can’t wait to see what this becomes!!!!
