One of our favourite charities, Knit For Peace is holding a Knit-In this weekend (5th December) at the Barbican Centre in London as part of the BBC's Get Cretive campaign.
Everyone is welcome: if you have never knitted before come along and learn the basics with a team of volunteers there to help you; experienced knitters can come and knit, chat, swap tips and techniques.
Throughout the day there will be opportunities to try out spinning and chat to our expert knitter about problems you have having, or learn how to ‘sew up’ blanket squares with a fast and efficient technique.There will also be talks/demos from designer, Jane Crowfoot (on crochet), and Elizabeth Caush on her ‘Blanket Book’.
If you can bring a blanket square for the charity's Keep the World Warm campaign that would be amazing.
