There's nothing knitters like more than a good get together, and for those in the Yorkshire area there could be another big event to add to the calendar.
Yarndale, the festival which celebrates 'all things knitting,' is coming to Skipton in September and aims to celebrate the diversity of wool, cotton, linen and other natural fibres.
The Craven Herald reports that it will feature a number of workshops, demonstrations, displays and stalls with knitting, crocheting, spinning, dyeing and felting.
There will also be a wide selection of crafty goods for sale.
Organiser Carole Rennison, who runs a knit and natter group in the Wild Oats café on Skipton's high street, told the newspaper: "It's a festival celebrating all things knitting. It's been a good community project for our knit and natter group."
Co-organiser Lucy O'Regan added that the idea had already taken off, with lots of local support, external funding and 44 bookings for stalls.
"The thing with 'yarny' people is that they are so enthusiastic that they will travel. The festival will bring visitors to the area, but it's nice for us to have something local so we don't have to travel," she explained.
Ms O'Regan then went on to say that it's great for newcomers to experience the more social side of crafts too.
Ms Rennison chimed in that "there's been a big rejuvenation recently with people making things out of nothing. Young people are learning the old craft".
The first ever Yarndale festival will take place on September 28th and 29th, with entry costing £5 per person.
Traders and craft experts are invited to book a stall or a workshop slot at the event if they want to share their skills and goods with the craft-loving public.
Organisers have also knitted a sheep that they want people to name, with the winner receiving two free tickets to Yarndale.
