    Knitting on the Stage

    One of our UK readers emailed us the details on this knitting play. It's called HAT and the details are below. You are welcome to knit throughout the performance and your ticket includes a free ball of wool, needles and hat pattern.

    HAT is four new stories about wool and knitting written and performed by poet and BBC Radio 3 presenter Ian McMillan with music composed and performed by Billy Jenkins. Featuring Andy Diagram (ex James) on cornet, loops and samples and Angie Harrison (ex Hallé orchestra) on viola and knitting needles.

    Conceived and produced by Simon Thackray.

    Two New Knitting Events

    Two new knitting events have been added to the listing on the site at Knitting Events. Thanks to our readers who emailed us the details. One is in Seattle, WA, in April and the other in Scottsdale, AZ, in March.
