Shirley the Super Knitter!

Post by Auf Wiedersehen, Pet » Wed Jul 30, 2014 7:49 pm

I have to say a huge Thank You to Shirley and her husband Alistair for making the items for the Fan Gathering weekend. If you weren't there, and I will post pictures soon, Shirleys husband made a couple of signs for the event, the 'Thornely Manor' sign and 'Sunny View Guest House' sign, both of which were just spot on!

I am hoping to get down to Notts soon and take the signs to the spots which they graced on screen for some new location pictures for the site. I will be hanging on to the signs for a long time and taking them on journeys and to Fan Events, so divin't worry if you didn't see them, I'm sure you will one day!

Shirley also made us a 'Canny Jumper' as worn by Oz in 'The Lovers'
My original plan was to wear it on the night, but in the heat I might have beaten Peng50 by a pint of sweat (See other thread) if I had. Anyway, it went in the raffle and some lucky punter now has it!

Thank you Shirley and Alistair, bloody brilliant!! :D

Thanks for ALL efforts from the pollard household... shirley's husband looked scary in some pics in the past, but on meeting the chap he's as good as gold... Only thing i couldnt believe about Shirl was her height.. always thought she was taller for some reason.. its no bad thing though.. :P

Shirley reminds me of Ally Sheedy, of The Breakfast Club and Short Circuit fame :D

She was great in TBC, one of my favourite films of all time!
That's Ally, not Shirley obviously.......
