Wonderfully Woolly – Loch Ness Knit Fest 2019 is here!

Team Planit love events and what a start we have had for Loch Ness Knit Fest 2019 – it is one of our annual events and it has grown from strength to strength since it began 4 years ago. Now established as a must-see event for all yarn enthusiasts from all over the world, it’s definitely a date for your diary. We have been working all year to create a programme that offers something for all levels of fibre-art enthusiasts, over a 4-day period:

  • Thursday – workshops and evening Knit-A-Long with Danish designer Christel Seyfarth.
  • Friday – marketplace, mainstage, workshops, presentations and Highland Feast.
  • Saturday – marketplace, mainstage, presentations and our annual concert at Bogbain farm.
  • Sunday – Isle of Skye Tour.

Today was day 2 of Loch Ness Knit Fest and it welcomed an array of yarn producers,  various workshops and a full programme of mainstage entertainment; including Music by Wilson Noble, An Ode to Wool by Shona Mason and a Talk on British Wool research by Dr Zoe Fletcher.

Don’t worry if you missed out on all of the woolly fun we had today as we return tomorrow, on Saturday 19th of October 10am-6pm, with another jam-packed day. If you’re coming along be sure to look out for:
