I think 2014 was my busiest year yet as a freelance designer and knitting teacher. As well as teaching at my regular local venues, I taught in a few new places, including Jersey, Sitting Knitting in Birmingham and La Mercerie in Wales.
I must admit my most exciting teaching opportunity last year was The Jersey Textile Showcase in Jersey. I taught 5 days of classes. We had planned to stay on for a couple of extra days so I got some time to explore Jersey but then our flights were cancelled due to fog on 2 days in a row so we got to stay an extra 3 days.
This was the walk to my classes every morning:
Brandywine Stole from Juniper Moon Farm:
Dawn Chorus from Let's Knit:
Portwrinkle in Navia Duo (kits here):
Rosecraddoc from my club:
St Aubin's Bay (inspired by my trip to Jersey):
Vaffel Votter (also available as a kit):
Lady Grey Tunic from Interweave Crochet Spring:
And our most frequent cycling destination is the Camel Trail (below is Simon and Emily on a cycling trip last summer):
