54 unforgettable UK days out
'For girly bonding, a team knitting day is the new pole-dancing. Don't worry if you've never purled one before, nimble-fingered Amy Twigger Holroyd will show you the threads while plying you with tea and biscuits in a former convent in the Herefordshire countryside. Once you get into the swing of things, you'll create a communal masterpiece (a blanket or wall-hanging). Individuals can sign up for one-day beginners' courses.'

The great fashion detox
Molly Gunn
'Three champion shoppers tell Molly Gunn how they too have tightened their waist-cinching belts... Amanda Langdown, 50, fashion lecturer "I try not to shop at all, though I'll make an exception if I really need something. I've just allowed myself three basic T-shirts from Gap. One of my ex-students, Amy Twigger, has a knitwear label called Keep & Share, which I've been wearing. The principles of the label are that you look after each item, share with friends or pass it on when you're finished with it."'

'Knitting is no longer just the realm of the Women's Institute. Knitting is in vogue. Everyone from Cameron Diaz to Daryl Hannah is at it, so if you want to learn how to whip up your own cashmere knits, sign up for the two-day workshop in rural Herefordshire with designer Amy Twigger Holroyd. The ethical fashion guru will teach the basics between long lunches at the local pub. And for those who know their seam from their stitch, advanced courses are also available.'

Kate Fletcher
'Many designers and companies, some of whom work regularly with sustainability ideas, have produced pieces that exemplify appropriateness. Keep and Share, for example, specializes in versatile, long life garments. Uni-size, unisex knitwear is designed with anchor points to attach to a wrist or shoulder and with loose geometric shapes that drape around the body, resulting in a garment that can be shared between people. This intensifies use and saves resources because the same piece meets a number of people's needs. As well as intensifying use, Keep and Share promotes longevity through a strong, 'love it or hate it' aesthetic with offbeat colour palettes and be establishing a community of customers linked to each other via its boutique-type website.'
