If you are already a guerrilla knitter come to Pembrokeshire for the first two weeks in September and you’ll be amongst friends.
If you haven’t taken up knitting yet, you’ll be inspired!
The people of Fishguard and Goodwick have taken up knitting on an industrial scale as the whole town (young and old, male and female) goes knitting mad over the weekend of the AberJazz and Blues festival, when benches and bollards, trees and lamp posts all over the town will each have their own idiosyncratic knitwear cover.
The public face of the project, promoted by the Fishguard Arts Society, has included workshops teaching people to knit, as well as accompanied knitting in concerts and public readings.
Following an outdoor display during the last week of August, there will be a Cast-Off Exhibition in the West Wales Arts Centre from August 31st until Saturday 14th September where all of the art work can be appreciated.
You’ll also be able to visit Jane’s wonderful wool shop on Fishguard High Street, enjoy the Pembrokeshire Craft Makers’ Exhibitions in Newport and St Davids and, of course, see the sheep that make all this possible.
