Web-ster’s in Ashland: Fourth of July entry

Another prize-winning Fourth of July parade entry by The Web-sters knitting, spinning and weaving store in Ashland: third place in the commercial division.

This year’s entry commemorated the store’s 30th anniversary with a knitting-covered, three-layer birthday cake that was towed on a flatbed trailer.

Designed by Erin Duffy, the float was assembled from knitting swatches. A group of seven or eight people, including Jonathan and me, marched alongside waving flags stitched together from knitting swatches.
