Around this time each year, the call goes out for knitters and crocheters to get busy making for the Yarndale World Creative Project. First there was bunting, and following that came Mandalas, mini Yarndale sheep, flowers and even socks. This year, the festival organisers are asking people around the world to put their time in lockdown to good use and make dishcloths which will be sold to raise money for a local children's hospice charity.
If you have ever been fortunate enough to visit the festival, which takes place in Skipton in North Yorkshire in September, you will have seen the huge amount of items sent in from all over the world to support the various causes highlighted by the festival. If you would like to join in with this year's appeal, you can find all the details for it at www.yarndale.co.uk
In this week's episode I spoke to one of Yarndale Festival founders Carole Rennison about how the festival came about and why they are calling on our help again this year.
