It’s just one month until the very first Unwind Brighton knitting festival! We couldn’t be more excited, not least because we’re hosting the Saturday night party! (Have you seen this meme? We couldn’t agree more.)
A couple of weeks ago, we announced that the one and only John Arbon himself will be spinning some tunes on the night. He spins a beautiful yarn, and he spins an excellent record. (Warning: we will never get tired of this analogy.)
Now we have some more exciting Shindig news for you involving yarn tasting. We are so excited to announce the line-up of amazing yarnies who are contributing!
Eden Cottage Yarns – John Arbon – Juno – Little Grey Sheep
Kettle Yarn Co – Midwinter Yarns – Old Maiden Aunt
Skein Queen – Sweet Georgia – Uncommon Thread
Each Shindig partier will get a surprise mini-selection of these yarns to swatch with on the night! All the yarns will be 4 ply/fingering to DK, so bring your favourite needles for these weights.
Could we give you any more reasons than these to get your knit on with us? Why yes we could! The bulk of the night we’ll be quizzing up a storm, so be sure to brush up on your fibre-y trivia – there are prizes to be won! We’ll also have a spot of live music and of course the evening will be a wonderful opportunity to hobnob with all your favourite knitty friends. We can’t wait!
Not got yourself a ticket yet? We forgive you ;) We’ll even give you the chance to win a pair! Just leave us a comment below letting us know what you’re most looking forward to at Unwind. You can enter twice (or thrice!) by tweeting or posting on Facebook about the Shindig – just leave another comment here letting us know you did!
We’ll choose a winner in one week – that’s Friday the 20th of June – so get your entries in before then!
This giveaway is now closed! Congratulations to Alexia!
