The Knitted Feast! (+ win free tickets to Harrogate Knittting & Stitching show on Sunday!)

Win tickets to The Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate on the 29th November.  The show starts tomorrow, 26th and is on all weekend!

The team at the Knitting and Stitching show have given me 3 pairs of tickets to giveaway. There's not long to go so I've made it really easy to enter!

If you'd like a pair of these tickets just comment on this post and I'll pick the winners tomorrow and pop the tickets in the post so you'll have them for the show on Sunday.

Show off your knitting skills in The Knitted Feast competition

The knitting and Stitching show will also be heading to London's Olympia in February. They asked if I could share details of their fun competition, I know lots of you like me love to knit - but are you up for this challenge?

Going out for dinner may be a pretty ordinary concept these days, but the people behind The Knitting & Stitching Shows are creating a dining experience with a difference:- an entirely knitted banquet!
The Knitted Feast Competition is on and they need your entries.
Show organisers Upper Street Events have teamed up with designer Susie Johns and Search Press to offer four knitting patterns to get you started. The patterns include an apple, an apple core, a pear and a carrot. But crafters are also encouraged to knit (or crochet) any food items they like, with ideas ranging from a bunch of bananas to a knitted cheese board, chicken legs to knitted cupcakes! They’re also keen to get plates or wine glasses with knitted covers – maybe even a knitted banqueting chair?!

If you think you have what it takes to knit or crochet something that looks good enough to eat, enter The Knitted Feast competition before the 19th February by visiting All items need to be made to scale (ie life-size) to ensure that the feast looks as realistic as possible and any number of items can be entered.

All the entries to the Knitted Feast will be displayed on a banqueting table at The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show in London’s Olympia. The winners will be announced at the show and top prizes will be given to first, second and third place winners.

The Knitted Feast will be open to the public between the 3rd-6th March at London Olympia as part of The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show. Entry forms available now from
