…and I even taught someone to crochet

The Knitting Reference Library event at the Hambledon in Winchester was a great success last weekend. We sat, we knitted, we chatted, we taught, we all started our Christmas shopping from the Hambledon’s stock, but most importantly we got the word out about the KRL.

Here are a few pictures of the proceedings:

KRL at The Hambledon


Our last KRL event at Cornershop

Just to let you know that The Knitting Reference Library will be at The Hambledon in Winchester on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 November. I will be there on Friday so do come along and say hello!

We will have books, patterns and the Knitting Collections Guide. There will also be spare needles and yarn if you would like to learn to knit. The Hambledon is going to display a selection of our vintage knitting patterns in the window and showcase knitwear plus any related books.

There will be space to sit down and knit as well, so bring yours along. Hope to see you there.
