Running from 14-20 October 2013, Knitting Week aims
to inspire the next generation of knitters and get your
community crazy for knitting !
This special week of crafty events was first celebrated in 2005
after it was created by Knitting Magazine. There's lots of ways
to get involved. You can organise free 'knitting and crochet' classes,
fashion shows to show off your newly spun clothes and much more.
At the Knitting Week website, you can find the full lists
of all the events taking place in your in your area. You could always
check out where your local knitting club is held and find out about
joining in with all the fun and games.
Knitting has really taken an up-turn in recent years and there are
lots of local knitting clubs around. And, it's not just about baby
clothes and jumpers anymore ! It is amazing to see the wonderful
hand made items which have been created out of wool. Today
there are loads of different things that you can make, from knitted
sweets and cupcakes, to flowers and animals and even bunting !
And, knitting is not just for the ladies! There's an increasing number
of men who knit. But, it's actually nothing new because in times
gone by it was the men who did the knitting, and in some parts
of the world this tradition continues today.
So go on, pick up your pins and knitting wool and get started on
that woolly jumper, or why not do something different and make
yourself a calorie-free gateau !
