From flowerbeds to willow trees to bugs, butterflies and a stunning carousel, come and enjoy the amazing knitted and crocheted Butterfly Garden created by the Louise Hamilton Knit and Yarn Group with the help of the Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers. Pieces of the garden will be available to buy on the day and all the money raised will to the Louise Hamilton Trust which helps patients and carers with life threatening illnesses.

The Enchanted Wood Competition
Want to have a go at knitting (or crocheting) your own creation for the Knitted Garden? The Louise Hamilton Knit and Yarn Group are creating an enchanted forest for you to add your master pieces to. Think Enid Blyton’s The Enchanted Wood meets Secret Garden with a bit of Lord of the Rings thrown in for good measure.

From knitted fairies, elves, hobbits, witches, wizards and pixies to knitted toadstools, tree trunks, logs, burrows we’re challenging you to make a magical creation for our all knitted Enchanted Forest.

All the entries will be entered into The Enchanted Wood Competition either under the category creatures or homes. First place for each category will win a £100 Black Sheep Wools voucher and 2 VIP tickets to the 2018 Spring Knitting & Stitching Show in Edinburgh.
