Our Friend Piers has built a first class Victorian railway carriage in his studio in Hackney Wick. Now it is completed, he is offering other people the chance to use it for photo shoots. If you are interested please e-mail him
I've sat in it, and it really is an amazing space. I love knitting on journeys and this would be the ideal ticket to get, because the train will never pull into a station, so all my garments would  be finished. 
He will dismantle it fairly soon, so do get in touch with him asap if you are interested.


Calling all friends and parents of new borns! Renowned knitting designer Erika Knight is coming to PYF to launch her new book, 'Natural Nursery Knits' on Saturday 2nd May 2-6pm. As well as producing practical and irresistible patterns for items to be treasured in the nursery and handed down as heirlooms, Erika will be talking to us about the sate of the world's yarn production. We all want to surround children with soft textures and adorn them with warm and comfortable clothing, but we also care about our environment. Erika will lead discussions on where our yarn comes from and how they effect our planet. 
PYF will be providing free knitting lessons to get you started on Erika's designs, and a selection of refreshments. I shall remind everyone nearer the time, but please put it in your diary and RSVP as soon as possible so I can calculate how many sandwiches to make.
