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

This year we launched an Enchanted Wood competition at The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show. You sent in your knitted fairies, elves, hobbits, witches, wizards and pixies to knitted toadstools, tree trunks, logs, burrows in their droves.

The winners are:
Alison Hogg from Belfast who knitted two adorable knitted elves.
Sue Spencer who knitted a fabulous rainbow tree.

Both winners received a £100 Black Sheep Wools voucher and 2 VIP tickets to the 2018 Spring Knitting & Stitching Show in Olympia.

If you’re inspired to try your hand at knitting their is still time to enter the competition for our Knitting & Stitching Show in Edinburgh.
