What we’re up to – events and workshops August – October 2016

August is here and with it comes the start of the official knitting season. It may not feel like it yet, but the evenings are getting shorter and although we may have some amazing summer days ahead still the autumnal days are drawing closer. Now, we don’t think that is such a bad thing. We love those cosy evenings in front of the fire (or telly) with a cup of hot chocolate (or wine) and most importantly, with the knitting!

Now is also a good time to start preparing! We’re looking forward to autumn walks wearing our new hand knits. Nothing better than warm hands and bodies from chunky knitwear and rosy, cold cheeks from the fresh air.


We’re getting ready for our next photoshoot at the beginning of September and it’s launch and we thought we should let you know where you can find us over the next few months!

1. Knitting workshop – 27th of August

We still have a few spots left on our knitting workshop in August. Held in the cute village hall in Barton, Cambridgeshire, with easy access to the alpacas in the green fields of Burwash Manor, you will get to meet the new additions to the herd this year! Take a look at Claire’s blog post from the workshop she attended if you need further convincing!

2. Knitting Workshop – 10th of September

Pretty much the same set up as the event above, we offer a fabulous day out for any knitter. Kari-Helene does all the cooking for the workshops and provides a gorgeous lunch with desert as well as sweet treats, teas and coffees throughout the day. We cater for any food allergies too. Check out the blog for some of her most popular recipes!

3. Yarndale, Skipton – 25-26th of September

The Yorkshire Dales are absolutely stunning this time of year and we are so looking forward to returning to Skiptong and Yarndale. This time we have even rented a cosy cottage in a nearby village so expect lots of cute instagram snaps!


4. The Knitting and Stitching Show, London – 5-9th of October

We will be very excited to launch our new collection at the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace. Kari-Helene has been hard at work for months knitting the prototypes and our knitters have been busy test knitting samples. Come try them on and chose your colour yarn from our lovely, all British sourced and produced alpaca!


5. Knitting workshop – 29th of October

Now this one has been extremely popular and we have only 2 spots left on our October Workshops. Don’t hesitate to place your deposit by booking online!

NOTHS - group learning knitting

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at one of these events!
