Advent Knitalong 2023

Once again, following on from our mystery Lent Knitalong (or in preparation for the next mystery Lent Knitalong?), we will be hosting a (smaller!) mystery Advent Knitalong.

Starting knitting on 1st December and leading up to Christmas, participants will be invited to knit a large table mat and use the accompanying reflections.

You can download our Welcome Information (or the Large Print Welcome Information) which has all the information you need to prepare for the Advent Knitalong: yarn and needle information, a swatch pattern you can use as a warm-up and to test your gauge and details of how to sign up to receive the pattern (if you are not on our mailing list already).

The whole pattern for the table mat, as well as the accompanying reflections will be released in one single document on Monday 27th November via email and on the Vic Knitalongs Facebook Group. There will be a suggested schedule of which rows to knit each day for those who’d like to knit along each day and finish on Christmas Eve, but of course knitters can work at their own pace (more experienced/quicker knitters/those with more time might like to knit more than one to give as Christmas presents).

We look forward to many of you joining us for another devotional mystery knitalong!


Haydn’s Creation Recordings

A great time was had by all at our October 2023 Come and Sing Haydn’s Creation event. Many thanks to all who were involved from singers, musicians, behind the scenes organisers and front of house and refreshments team to Lyn, our conductor.

We recorded the event and are making videos of it available via our YouTube channel. So far, the first six movements are available, but the others will be added over time, too. Many thanks to our tech team for making this possible.
