On Sunday July 26th at 3pm W.E.S.T. is hosting a knit off on the Legislative grounds facing Osborne.  

You have one of two options, coming out and competing for some great prizes, or just come out and knit for fun. If you wish to compete you must bring 6mm needles and a medium weight yarn, and we will be knitting 6"x6" squares, and hope to put them together to make a blanket later on. If you are not competing, bring whatever you would like to knit with, and just join in the fun.

To compete there will be sign up sheets the day of the Knit-off!

There will be 3 prize baskets:
-Ram Wools (heaven for Winnipeg knitters) has graciously donated a wonderful basket of knitting goods. 
-The Costume Museum of Canada has donated a basket.
-And the Winnipeg Etsy Street Team has created a basket of goods from our stores.

There will be three categories to compete for:
1. fastest knitter
2. most creative
3. most promising new knitter (you will just have to tell us if you are a new knitter)

Can't wait to see you all there!


  1. Hooray!! What time will it go till? I work until 6.

  2. It will probably be about an hour to hour and a half. Aw, hope something works out and you can make it.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment!
