PicKnit is the Campaign for Wool’s community activity this year and has attracted people all over the country to get together and celebrate wool with a PicKnit. There are events happening the length and breadth of the UK and the USA, in homes, gardens, cafes, shops and even one in The Grosvenor Hotel, London as a group of American ladies fly in to participate!
The PicKnit at Kendal will have a whole range of woolly activities including knitting, crochet, pom-pom sheep making - with a micro flock from the famous Pom-Pom sheep parade, finger knitting with PinkyKnits and a British Wool sorting table with Dr Wool in residence to answer all woolly questions. Sizergh’s own Sheep will be there too to take part in the fun and there is a competition to guess the sheep breeds.
A stunning, multi-colour PicKnit blanket pattern has been created for PicKnit and is designed by Marie Wallin of Rowan and can be downloaded from the Campaign for Wool .Wool lovers can sign-up and then they can get the pattern and a downloadable invitation for their own PicKnit event.
“We welcome everyone to come along and learn about wool and how fabulous and versatile this natural fibre is. The PicKnit is a social event - people can sit and share food and their love of wool and knitting and craft. We hope it will stimulate a lot of good fun in Kendal and across the country too.” Bridgette Kelly of the Campaign for Wool said.
