A knitted garden

Knitted flowers on sale in The Buttercup Cafe – raising money for Emmaus Brighton

Here in The Buttercup Cafe, we’re partial to a bit of knitting and crochet. So we were delighted when an artist came through the cafe doors with armfuls of knitted flowers. She goes by the name of Crafty Old Crow and she knits and sells these flowers to raise money for the homeless charity Emmaus in Brighton. You can see her brilliant flowers on the tables here in the cafe at the moment.

Her knitted work is included in the Amazing Knitted Garden which is on display on Saturdays during Brighton Fringe 2012 at Emmaus on Drove Road in Portslade. There’s a lovely review and photos of the knitted garden on the Strebergarten blog.
