Knitting in Stockholm September 16th - 19th 2011
With it's charming architecture, green spaces, 14 islands and 57 bridges, the aptly named 'Venice of the North' is one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Combine this with a chance to enjoy a workshop in a cosy knitting cafe, plus view some exquisite mitten making, and you have have a fascinating long weekend for knitters of all persuasions.
Led by myself, this tour offers a superb mix of knitting and sightseeing. A visit to a friendly Rowan Wincent shop in the city's Vasasten district ensures a chance to discover some wonderful yarns and sample knitting Swedish Style. A journey out of the city and into the countryside will also give you a real flavour of Swedish Life and traditional knitting techniques.
I am really looking forward to this tour and can't wait to see what Stockholm has in store for us. I'm a real Steig Larrson fan too - so the prospect of bumping into the girl with the Dragon tattoo is adding extra excitement!
If you would like to come along and spend this weekend with me then why not take a look at the Arena Travel Web site.
