World Wide Knit In Public Week

As part of the "World Wide Knit In Public Day" (KIP) Hobbycraft in Carlisle will be hosting TWO exciting events.

The first one is "Meet a fellow Knitter", this will be held on Tuesday 11th June 2013 from 2.00pm-4.00pm.

All you have to do is come along, with your knitting, sit and knit while meeting other local knitters - oh, and you can eat cake and drink tea too  :)  All FREE.

The second event is a "Wool Swap", this will be held on Saturday 15th June 2013 from 12 noon - 2.00pm.

There will be two categories in this swap, the first one will be budget yarn which will be swapped by weight.
Each ball (or part ball) will be weighed in and marked with the weight and you may swap it for another of the same weight.

The second category will be luxury yarn, this can be marked with a price of what the swapper thinks it is worth and swapped with another luxury yarn marked at the same amount.  What price you put on your yarn is up to you and exchanges will be between swappers so if there is nothing suitable, you don't need to proceed.

I will remind you nearer the time, but for now make sure you pop this into your diaries, and please do share this post with anyone you think might be interested.

I am off to sort out my yarn stash, looking forward to trading for something new  :)


  1. Hey that sounds good ... knit in public ... since I have several appointments at the docs next week, I guess I can find something to knit while I wait ... is that public enough? Shame I don't live "up north" ... I'd love to come to knit and drink tea and eat cake LoL ...

  2. I shall eat cake in your honour Margret :)


I would love to hear from you, questions, comments and salutations all welcome.
