Knitting holiday

 

Garden wing 3Knitting and Holiday are two words that were designed to go together. Have you ever fancied traveling to an exotic place and learning some new stuff? Knit for Peace is planning an Indian Knitting Adventure where you can stay in the gorgeous eco Green Hotel in Mysore, enjoy good company and indulge in some knitting heaven.

Knit for Peacers will know that we have been sending knitting to India for some time  including supplying materials for knitting workshops and sending jumpers for street children in India. But you may not know that we also have a hotel in Mysore. The Green Hotel is part of the Charities Advisory Trust that also runs Knit for Peace and has been set up as a model of sustainable tourism. All profits are distributed to charitable and environmental projects in India. The funding supports education projects for literacy, sanitation and hygiene as well as health check ups. Street children are given a hygiene box containing soap and towel, nail clippers and toothbrush and paste.
