This weekend I’ve been busy unearthing our beautiful samples from their storages boxes, organising pattern printing and checking the weather forecast for p/hop’s annual outing to one of our favourite knitting shows, Woolfest!
p/hop has been a regular exhibitor at Woolfest since 2009 and so far you lovely fibre people have raised £2765.37 for MSF at Woolfest. Brilliant!
This year we will have several new patterns on our stand as well as your favourites. Another new part of our stand is MSF’s lovely website intern Nick, who is new to the knitting world, but he knows loads about MSF’s work helping people in need of healthcare. Please come and ask us questions about MSF’s incredible work as well as our fab knitting patterns.
As well as our patterns we’re hoping to raffle two gorgeous blankets which have been made with love and care by p/hoppers around the world. There’s the log cabin blanket (above) and barn-raising blanket (below). Ros, one of our talented designers who you can see in the photo above, is sadly not included as a raffle prize but she will be helping on our stand for part of the weekend.
Let us know in the comments below if you’re coming and we’ll keep an eye out for you.
See you in Cumbria!
If you can’t make it to Woolfest p/hop will also be at Fibre East on 14th and 15th July and at the Glasgow School of Yarn in October.
