A 12-Hour Tour

New to the Lochness Knit Fest this year is the Knit Fest Isle of Sky Tour happening at the conclusion of the fest on October 20. This add-on adventure will start and end in Inverness and make stops at all of the must-see sights as you travel from Northeast to Northwest Scotland. A day not to miss, the tour will allow you to experience the breathtaking views of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes. Plus, this 12-hour tour (seriously – it’s from 8am – 8pm) gives you plenty of travel knitting time. Tickets are on sale now.

Pom Pom Quarterly Call For Submissions

Pom Pom‘s next issue will be about top-down knits, but not top-down sweaters or socks necessarily. The issue’s theme is a view from above – a bird’s eye view of the topography and landscapes that make up our beautiful world. Get your needles, hooks, and drone cameras out and begin exploring that stream, rolling hills, or sand dune from above. Sketch and swatch ideas are due by May 31st.
