Feel free to get in touch with Knit-a-Soc if you have any questions.
Knit-a-Soc is the University of Nottingham’s knitting and crochet society (actually we’re a Student Led Project but potato, po-TAH-to). We provide a friendly and supportive community for crafters of all abilities. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a complete beginner or a veteran knitter/ crocheter, we are more than happy to have all of you.
We're more than happy to teach beginners! It doesn't matter what skill level you're at, just come along to one of our weekly Knit & Knatter sessions (Thursday evenings, 7-9pm in the Fishbowl, the Studio, next to Mooch) and we'll teach you fall you need to know for only £1 per lesson. Materials are provided during lesson. If you decide you'd like to practoce at home you can always buy or borrow (for a refundable deposit) materials from us.
Experienced Knitters/ Crocheters:
Our weekly Knit & Knatter sessions take place on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm in the Fishbowl (in the Studio, next to Mooch). It’s a great chance to chat to likeminded crafters, make use of our free patterns, and find out about our latest charity projects. We provide biscuits and friendly conversation and we’re always happy to greet new members! Just bring along a current project or ask us for FREE YARN if you want to make something to donate to one of our charity projects.
Our regular Knit-a-zine magazine is full of patterns to try, pictures to marvel at and great recommended books and shops in the local area. And the best part? It is free to our members!

Project of the Year 2014!
What a good year 2013/14 was!
We donated: 100 smoothie hats to The BIG Knit, 20 cardigans and 156 hats to Nottingham City Hospital Neonatal Unit.
We have many new projects for the terms ahead, let's hope that we can beat those awesome figures that the 2013-2014 team achieved!
