One of my favourite features on The Great Model Railway Challenge TV show recently was the forest of trees on the Loco Ladies layout, all created using crochet by team captain Carol.
I know judge Kathy really didn't like these, but they are innovative and unusual. I've never heard of anyone knitting their layout before. As such, when the team announced they would be sold off in aid of breast cancer research, I was determined to get one and texted my boss to see what she could do.
Later that day, I received a picture and have now picked up my tree.
Not a massive plant, it's 7cm wide and 5.5cm tall. Not sure what sort of tree I have, but it's lovely, and a bit of fun.
Anyway, this seems to have set a trend, as look what I spotted at the weekend.
A crochet Christmas tree! Maybe this is the future. Will there be P4 knitting needles on sale soon?
