Armchair Travel Knit Kit 3: The Far Fields Shawl or Poncho

An ode to our grazing fiber friends… and a deep winter, after-the-holidays-are-over knitting treat for you. Our Armchair Travel Knit Kit #3 provides you with a glimpse into the colors, textures and flavors of our Knitting in the Northern Borders tour. It includes a lovely new pattern that will transport you to northern England and southern Scotland and a chance to work with yarn from one of our favorite fiber farms in Northumberland, Whistlebare. PLUS, we’ve included two of Whistlebare proprietor Alice Elsworth’s recipes for scrummy classic British bakes. Even when she has her hands full taking care of fiber animals, running a yarn business, caring for a family and hosting us when we’re in the area, Alice never fails to provide us with coffee, tea and fantastic cakes when we visit. We love them. We love her. Now you can have a taste of her fantastic bakes at home while we await a green light for travel. 

 

Rowan Tree Travel is hosting an online, Zoom-based KAL through February, for a winter boost of camaraderie, laughter and help with the pattern and will include an invite with your e-pattern if you order in time. We look forward to knitting up this lovely garment together!
