Ready for something new?

It's time to learn or perfect some new techniques!

Winter is over, and the pressure to provide warm clothing for our loved ones is over... for now!

So, why not take advantage of the breathing space to learn some new (or brush up some forgotten) knitting techniques?

With this thought in mind, we've started scheduling our new season of workshops. We have a couple of old favourites: Tension Squares, and Finishing Techniques, and we're excited to announce our brand new Cable Knitting Workshop!

We'll take you on an Aran Adventure, using The Great American Aran Afghan as our guide-book. A copy of the book is included in the cost of the workshop, so you can keep exploring when you get home, or come back to Wool Addiction and join us for the next leg of the journey...
Tension Squares - Thursday 24th September
Finishing Techniques - Thursday 1st October
Cable Knitting - Friday 2nd October
Wild Knitting with Loani Prior - Thursday 8th & Friday 9th October
Just in case you can't get to Bowral, we've whipped up a new pattern, the Overhand Hat, to get you thinking about the Magic Loop. Now don't be daunted: the Magic Loop is cumbersome to describe, but once you've got it, you'll think "This is so obvious! Wasn't I doing this all along??"

If you're interested in finding out what other knitters think of this pattern, you can find it on Ravelry!

As ever, if you have any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, comments or requests for patterns, workshops or products, please drop us a line ...
