The wait is over...

At last, the moment you've all been waiting for...
Loani Prior's Wild Knitting Workshop is open for bookings!

wild knitting

Learn to knit outside the square in two days with Loani Prior
  • Thursday 8th October and Friday 9th October 2009
  • Wool Addiction, 6 Bundaroo St, Bowral
Loani uses the iconic tea cosy to demonstrate the wild and sculptural possibilities of knitting.

Knit your own tea cosy and learn tricks and techniques to help you think outside the square.

If you can knit a stitch and purl a stitch and cast on and cast off, you can join this class. If you consider yourself to be an advanced knitter and would like to learn more knitting skills, this might also be the class for you. Either way it will be a lot of fun.

Loani says she can feel a third life coming on. Her usual ‘Filing Fairy’ job is fast giving way to a ‘Knitting Fairy’ job. This year, the Queen of the Tea Cosies has given workshops at the Nundle Woollen Mill, at the Sturt Winter School in Mittagong and a number of other wool shops around the country. Loani’s book, Wild Tea Cosies, has meant that what was once a private, in front of the tele sort of activity has all of a sudden become very public. Her new book REALLY Wild Tea Cosies is due for release in March 2010.

Please bring with you the following:
  • Small 3-cup teapot. Small round Chinese teapots are perfect our purpose.
  • 2 x 6mm circular needles 60 cm length from tip to tip
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle
  • 1 x 4mm crochet hook
You can choose all the wool you need for purchase in the shop after meeting and discussing your design with Loani.
