Joining forces with the UK Hand Knitting (UKHKA) we bring back a much-loved knitting competition! The Nation’s Fastest Knitter launches in Manchester and then continues its tour with heats at Sewing For Pleasure and Fashion & Embroidery with Hobbycrafts at the NEC Birmingham in March and the Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts Show at ExCeL London in April. The UKHKA will also be running regional heats online. The competition will take place at the UK Hand Knitting stand at the Manchester, Birmingham and London shows where representatives of the Association will be on hand to adjudicate with stop watches at the ready. Those taking part must knit 100 stitches as quickly as they can. Their result will be recorded by UKHKA volunteers with the fastest knitter from each of the three shows going through to the grand final taking place at the Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts Show in London.
