All Knit Sherberts

At home with the Chilgates

by Sarah Chilcott and Gail Felgate

Their house was 99% created on the knitting machine using many of hte techniques we have learnt knitting garments and there is just a touch of crochet and hand knitting with even a little bit of cross stitch, embroidery and swiss darning. Having a stash of everything was very important in the production of this house; so were numerous bottles of glue!!

we upcycled many cerals boxes, bottle lids, plastic cups, cotton reels, kitchen rolls and fairy lights etc. There are NO patterns; we made it UP! (with amny Blue Peter moments) just using our creativity, imagination and lateral thinking.  It has taken us many pleasurable weeks to create and we hope you enjoy our wool brained, crazy and frivolous achievment!
