Truck Festival this year was the best yet, but for me releasing my Truck Monsters added another dimension to the festival.
After releasing the first monster I went to the knitting circle to knit with the lovely lady from Nimu Yarns. My husband saw the monster being taken and came back to tell me. Whilst telling me the story the lady knitting beside me had a text from her husband to say he had found it!
Another Monster had been left in the main stage area waiting to be found, for several hours no one saw him. None of us saw him being taken so we wondered what had happened to him, and then the following email arrived this morning.
Dear Mrs Big Tangle
After my release I tagged along with a couple from Gloucestershire. We had an excellent festival and they invited me to come home with them. So I've made my home in Cam, Glos., where I think I'll be very happy. Maybe see you at Truck next year.
Thanks for knitting me!
Attached were the following lovely images of my truck monster having a fabulous time at the festival....
All that knitting has totally been worth it, this is exactly the fun response I hoped for.

Aaahhh Truck! What an amazing weekend we've had!!!
Truck Monster releases went really well and added a completely new dimension to the festival.
Burlesque dancer - my 6 year old son's comment... "She must have such a bad wedgy!" kept us giggling for most of the festival.
Musical highlights include:
It was just so good.. the best yet.

I had a fantastic time at Art in Action last week. I was there with Craftclub to help teach knitting and crochet during the event on the Thursday. I met so many interesting people and enthusiastic knitters.
During the morning I taught several people to crochet and since it was craft club that taught me to crochet just under a year ago it seemed perfect to be able to do the same for someone else.
I managed to have a few hours at the end of the day to look around the event and as last year Roanna Wells really stood out for me. Her work really has me mesmerized every time I see it and this year she had some beautiful work.
Beautiful delicate seed like stitches that reminded me of kiwi seeds sewn in black over fabric that had been machine embroidered and then carefully unpicked to reveal such a faint impression of what was there before.

We are off to Truck Festival soon and I felt that this could be turned into a perfect knitting opportunity...
I have knitted some mini monsters that I will 'release into the wild' over the course of the festival weekend for anyone who finds them to keep. I will try and tweet there last known whereabouts to help people out!
If you are going to the festival keep an eye out for my wild mini monsters.
