The Big Knit 2022 

Here is your chance to once again support a wonderful charity Cyrenians while securing some great winter woolies for yourself or for Christmas gifts!...from hand knits ranging from small rugs and large blankets to special knitted toys, socks and kiddies jumpers & cardigans, baby clothes, wooly hats, scarves, rugs and teapot cosies!

The Shades of Amber Big Knit 2022 is a hands-on way of raising funds for our favourite charity. Festival-goers and knitters from afar contribute their time and energy to knit items that are auctioned, raffled or sold to help show our support in a unique, creative and involving way. Dougie MacLean's mother Dolly was the Big Knit's first co-ordinator 2007 and continues to help with the knitting and overseeing of the Big Knit Team that has gradually evolved. Several of Dolly's special hand knit items are once again included in this year's offerings. As we gradually emerge from the global (Covid 19) pandemic, and with many of our overseas festival-goers still not ready to travel, we are wanting to again raise funds for Cyrenians … this year this will happen simultaneously at our weekend event at Cardney Steading and by appealing to members of our growing global audience who have enjoyed our Perthshire Amber Festival in the past or our streamed Live Concerts during 2020, 2021 and 2022! We are asking for a donation (with or without one of the special knitted items) from everyone.

HERE'S HOW TO DONATE AND SECURE YOUR BIG KNIT GOODIES!! - All the items available (with suggested minimum donation) are numbered and listed below ... click on any item you’re interested in and it opens to reveal full details). - If there is an item you would like, you need to send an email to Jenny at clearly stating the number of the item and the amount you would like to donate for it.
