Knit 15 Presents: Knitters Question Time

11 September @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

From straightening out your wobbly rib to sizing advice. From navigating an over whelming array of patterns to making friends with colour. From locating your lost knitting mojo to puzzling out intarsia on a seamless sweater, we’ve all got questions we wish we had answers to. They may be big, small, technical, spiritual, radical, practical, or even slightly ridiculous.

We welcome them all!

 

Email questions to kqt@wildandwoollyshop.co.uk

 

Please join Knit 15 for a brand new live show at this year’s Sweater Weather knitting festival where we will have a panel of woolly experts who really know..

They are..

Brontë Swannick
Brontë is a hand knitting designer, avid sewist and scrap book maker and has many years experience working in wool shops. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of knitting patterns and about the going-ons of the knit design world.

Helen Reed
Helen is the founder and hand-dyer behind ‘The Wool Kitchen”, She dyes her technicolour skeins from her garden studio shed in East London. Her aim is to create yarn that is full of excitement about what’s coming next when knitting with it.

Sylvia Watts-Cherry
Sylvia designs under the brand ‘With Cherries on Top’. Her ‘Nubian Queen’ Pullover is a dazzling example of both her mastery of intarsia and bold use of colour. She is inspired by African textiles and carvings of her Nigerian heritage as well as cables from her Scottish upbringing.

Wendy Peterson
Wendy is the brain behind Yarnsub, an invaluable online resource for yarn substitutions. Her other passions are solving knitters conundrums such as why left leaning decreases never look as nice as their right leaning counterparts and playing with techniques such as shaped intarsia.

Note: KQT will happen live at the Maltings and be streamed online while also be recorded for on-demand viewing until the end of the festival.
