Next Level Knitting - Knit a Scarf on the Bias

Join me for a very special collaboration with Adagio Alpaca Mills in Orange, NSW.

Open to knitters of all levels, this fun and relaxed workshop will equip you with all the skills you need to knit a lovely bias knit scarf from 100% Australian natural-coloured alpaca yarn, grown and milled in Orange, NSW. We'll knit in stockinette stitch, learn some simple increases and decreases, and cover the basics of colour blocking. 

Each participant will get the equivalent of one ball of Adagio alpaca in the form of mini skeins of several colours, a set of Australian-made knitting needles, and a PDF pattern for the alpaca scarf, designed by Ani specifically for this special workshop. It's a truly Aussie affair through and through. 

We'll also get to take a tour of the mill, and share tea and snacks while we learn. It's going to be a really fun day, so don't miss out! 

To book, or for more info, contact Adagio at info@adagiomills.com.au or Ph 0422 425 424

Not local? No problem! We welcome those traveling from the greater NSW/Australia area, and would love to have you attend this workshop with us and join us for a tea. If you need advice on getting to the workshop/places to stay, please drop me a line at hello@closeknit.com.au

Learn to Knit with Australian Made Alpaca Yarn

I'm incredibly pleased to announce a very special collaboration with the alpaca mill, Adagio. Located in beautiful Orange, NSW, Adagio is leading the way in Australian yarn manufacturing. 

This workshop is excellent for complete beginners and knitters who want to freshen up their skills - all skill levels are welcome. We will learn how to cast on, knit the important and universal garter stitch, and bind off. All participants will take home a beautiful skein of Adagio alpaca in the colour of their choosing, as well as lovely handcrafted knitting needles. You'll begin a simple headwarmer project in the class to keep your ears toasty as we go into winter, and you'll take home your started project, all materials, and a PDF pattern to help you finish the project from the comfort of your favourite home knitting spot. 

Half way through the class, we'll also get to take a very special tour of the mill, and see where the yarn we're working wth has been made. Like I said - it doesn't get much more local or special than this - this isn't a night you'll want to miss! 

This will be a special night of learning to knit using beautiful alpaca, grown, milled and entirely made in Orange, NSW along with knitting needles made from lovely Australian wood. It's a truly Australian affair- from start to finish, and you can delight in the fact that all these goods have been locally produced with love.
