KNIT ONE, PEARL ONE…
First this week to BBC News, and to the small town of Thrapston in Northamptonshire, where a local knitting group has turned their hand to a very special project to raise money for the town’s upcoming fair, in the form of a knitted model of the town – head here to see what it looks like.
COMING HOME TO ROOST
