Countess Ablaze Lord Kitchener Laceblog

Knitmastery will be giving away a skein of Lord Kitchener yarn (laceweight, 55% wool, 45% silk, 800m) from Countess Ablaze and the Cascadia Shawl pattern by Karen Butler, a lovely design for summer knitting.

To be in with a chance of winning this bountiful yarn booty, just visit Knitmastery in the new social area and sign up to their mailing list (or give your name if you’re already on the list).

The winner will be chosen at random and will be notified after the festival.

Knitmastery is newly launched app from the creators of Stitchmastery (chart editing software for knitwear designers).  Knitmastery is a free app which uses interactive patterns to allow knitters to track their progress, colour code stitches, recolour Fair Isle & colourwork patterns, and more.

Come and meet developer Cathy Scott in the new social area to see the Knitmastery app in action, fondle knitted samples and ask any questions about either product.

We are very happy to announce that there will be a dedicated social space at this year’s Yarningham.

We will be using the ‘Cinema Room’ as a dedicated social space where you can meet up with friends, have a drink and some cake or just sit admiring your purchases!

The ‘Cinema Room’ is located next to the Yarningham Marketplace in the main hall.  It is fully air conditioned and will have plenty of seating and tables.

The ‘Cinema Room’ is also conveniently situated adjacent to the onsite cafe run by Change Kitchen who will be serving hot and cold drinks and a range of vegetarian and vegan meals and snacks.

The social space will also feature Lorna Bakes who will be back with a delicious selection of cakes and baked goods.

Also in the social space the local branch of WSD (Weavers, Spinners and Dyers) Guild will be demonstrating their skills and on hand for a chat.

And to top it all off in the new social space, creator of Knitmastery and Stitchmastery Cathy Scott will be demonstrating the new app and running a giveaway.  More details of Stitchmastery and Knitmastery in a few weeks.
