Coop Knits at Unravel

Need something to lift you from the murk and gloom of February? Farnham Maltings is hosting Unravel 2016 on the 19th-21st February. There are exhibitions, talks and workshops throughout the weekend. Rachel will also be manning (or is it womanning?) the Coop Knits stall, so do drop by to see what's new from Coop Knits, she'll be launching a new book Crochet Yeah from the The Crochet Project, which features Socks Yeah yarn. She will also be bringing all her books and the beautiful Dyed in the Wool yarn from Spincycle (on the left below).

Day tickets are £7 in advance (workshops are extra) and, if previous years are anything to go by, there will be plenty to keep you busy and to tempt your wallet all weekend.

I'll be there on the Saturday for Veera Välimäki's workshop on shawls. Are you going? If so, what are you looking forward to?


Knitting in Public Competition!

Hi Rachel!

Are you knitting in public tomorrow for World-Wide Knit in Public day (WWKIP)? I'm not going to a special event - everyday is a knit in public day for me! - but I will certainly be out and about with my knitting.

Wouldn't it be fun to see all of the cool places that people are knitting in public this week? I've started a thread in your group: CoopKnits in Public Anyone who posts a photo of a public knitting of a Rachel Coopey pattern in that thread will get an entry to win two pdf patterns of their choice from your Ravelry Store. I can't wait to see where people are out and about to! Head over to the thread on Ravelry if you'd like more information! And in the meantime, get knitting!

Now, please tell me all about Squam!
