Life isn’t all about yarn. Or is it?

Life’s not all about yarn, you know. We do other things as well. Like gardening, for instance. Well, we watch gardening telly programmes. That’s near enough for us 🙂 One of our favourites is the Scotland-based Beechgrove Garden. Today’s show featured a visit to Gardening Scotland. And what was the very first garden that the Beechgrove gang went to see? None other than designer Susan M. White’s ‘The Knitted Garden’.

So maybe life is all about yarn after all, as it seems there’s no escaping it.


The Knitted Garden had in it lots of plants that had one thing in common: they were all sources of fibre, eg bamboo, flax, and cotton.

The centrepiece of the garden was a dead tree reborn as a piece of Art covered in crochet and knitting, “Yarn Bombing” style.


The intro to the Knitted Garden section included a song in the background. It sounded like something from the 1930s or thereabouts. After scouring virtually the entire Internet, Shana finally came up with the goods. The song was ‘Knitting’ by Arthur Askey Time they reissued this. It could be a monster hit in the Yarn-o-sphere. As I said, life isn’t all about yarn.

How wrong I was 🙂
