It’s the start of Wool Week in the UK and it couldn’t be a better time to tell you about the exciting things we have coming up. This weekend we’ll be at Rhinebeck with exclusive designer signings (find out more in this post here!) and yarn giveaways (to be announced this week!). Next on the calendar is Oslo Knitting Festival and we’re thrilled to be heading here for the first time.
Oslo Knitting Festival is Norway’s only community-driven, international festival with the aim to promote fibre crafts as “modern, relevant, accessible and always surprising.” A good match with Pom Pom we thought! The three day event will bring together vendors and instructors from all the world to celebrate all things woolly.
We’ll be there 4th – 6th November with a Pom Pom stall brimming with magazines and samples to swoon over and by then this will also include our newly released Winter Issue 19.
You’ll also be able to catch our podcast hosts Sophie and Lydia recording a live Pomcast interview, Saturday at 3pm, with knitwear designer and Pom Pom contributor Dianna Walla (shown below wearing her Fjordland Hat from Pom Pom 7). Expect knitting tips, an insight into Dianna’s life and process as a knitter, plus lots of giggles!
We’re also very excited to be bringing our Pomcast wool chat to host the festivals Fiber Fanatic’s Quiz on Saturday! Form a team and test yourself on fibers, loops, crimps, weaves and warps.
Make sure you get your ticket here and we’ll ser deg snart! (See you soon!)
