People to Find, Yarn to Taste, Shawls to Cast on.

Across the weekend there will be various hosts in the Pavilion Gardens to help you find some tranquil knitting time and inspiration away from the hubbub of the vendors market and encouraging you to Unwind after your classes. The Gardens are an ideal spot, close to the Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, to sit back and relax and enjoy some stitches across the weekend. 


Vivacious, one of Fyberspates yarns

On Saturday morning, Jeni from Fyberspates will be hosting a Drop In Learn to Knit/ Yarn Tasting session. Armed with some of her fine yarns and some needles, she'll be there to start the weekend off to a cheery start. So if you're dragging along family members or friends and looking to snare a new knitter into the fold, you can drop them off to meet later, safe in the knowledge that they are in expert hands! Of course, you can settle in and chat to fellow knitters about what you're excited to see, things you've already enjoyed and swap knit tips too!


Pebble Beach Shawlette by Helen Stewart

Then at 2pm on Saturday, join the mass Cast On of Pebble Beach Shawlette, the winning design from our Design Competition. The designer of the shawlette Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade, will be there to welcome knitters and help them cast on the pattern that features in the programme. Whether you're planning on a new purchase from the vendors market or bringing along some precious stash, come and share your new project with other knitters here for the day too.

On Sunday afternoon, between 2-6pm, join Justyna Lorkowska, designer of 'On The Pier' which was one of our official KAL patterns. She'll be enoucraging you to knit and natter as things Unwind for the weekend. 

The gardens are a great picnic spot with a cafe nearby and plenty of food, drink and ice cream spots slightly further afield that you could easily bring back to the gardens and settle in for a good knit and natter. 

See you soon!
