* No 8. * Re-learn how to knit!
To help me along the way I might just head down to the knitting festival in Surrey this month. "Un-ravel" is on from 26th-27th February at Farnham Maltings
"unravel 2010 will be bigger than ever, with a wider variety of stands, giving everyone a chance to see, hear, share and wonder at all things woollen. Activities will include a marketplace, talks, demonstrations, workshops, exhibitions and a knitting surgery.
There will be opportunities for both experienced knitters and beginners to take part in the interaction room, with demonstrations and handy hints and tips by experts from the best of the South East’s societies, including the West Surrey Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers, the Surrey Knitting & Crochet Group and the Guild of Machine knitters.
Knitwear designer and teacher Fiona Morris will host a knitting surgery, where she will provide help with patterns and stalled projects and techniques."
