Wool Week!

Tomorrow is the start of Wool Week (October 14th-20th)!

Wool Week is a campaign to raise awareness among consumers about the unique, natural and sustainable benefits offered by wool, and has led to increased demand for wool which led to an increase in the price farmers receive for their wool.

To celebrate Wool Week 2013, 14th – 20th October, John Lewis Oxford Street and Edinburgh will be running a week of FREE fashion focused knitting classes and drop-ins, focusing on how to use bright colours, and new techniques to create high fashion patterns. Despite not being allowed to knit this week, I’m popping in to watch a few workshops; I want to learn Fairisle knitting as it was colourwork that caused me wrist pain so I’d love to know the best technique.
