Looms and Lambs
Your first stop will be at the Knit Pickers studio, located just minutes away from Cavendish Beach and nestled in the rolling hills of Mayfield. Learning to knit has never been so easy! Margaret, an internationally recognized knitter and weaver, will share with you the tips and techniques to knit a perfect hat and scarf. You'll wind your wool, cast on your first project and try your hand at a few different stitches on an old-style knitting loom. And - you will take home your own wooden knitting loom which has been hand-made in PEI.
Wrap up your Looms and Lambs adventure at Blomidon Farm. Located in pastoral Breadalbane, you'll be visiting the only Icelandic sheep farm on PEI! Originally brought to Iceland by the Vikings in the 9th or 10th century, Icelandic sheep are known for their intelligence. They are raised both for their meat and their wool.
