Sharing stories about knitting from Victoria BC to St John’s Newfoundland.¬†Visiting fibre artists, guilds, yarn stores, bookstores, and anything and everything to do with yarn or knitting

In Sylvia Olsen’s words, this tour is both a New Year’s Resolution and the realization of a dream: “I look at 2015 as possibility and ask myself what interesting and cool stuff can I do with the next twelve months. This year I want to celebrate knitting diversity and innovation across Canada.”

The Great Canadian Knitting Tour is a collaboration between Sylvia and her publisher Diane Morriss of Sono Nis Press; Olsen is the author of three books about knitting and many others for a variety of audiences. The idea got started with the thought that there are hundreds of fascinating knitting stories out there and how much fun it would be to go on the road, investigate them and share them in another book called Knitting Stories II. www.thegreatcanadianknittingtour.com
