Busy Week

It's been a busy few days. On Sunday I taught at Sitting Knitting in Sutton Coldfield and yesterday I taught at Spin A Yarn in Devon. I don't normally schedule 2 workshops a day apart but somehow it happened.

It was lovely to be back at Sitting Knitting and meet regular and new workshop participants. We did Toe Up Socks and they were a brilliant group of knitters. Some even decided to have a go at knitting toe up socks two at a time immediately after the workshops and I'm loving seeing progress photos pop up on Instagram and Facebook.

Here's my Sunday class hard at work:

I'll be back at Sitting Knitting in June to teach Professional Finishing Techniques so if you worry about sewing up or have no clue what short row shoulders are or how to get better button holes, this is for you. You'll learn everything you need to make your hand-knitted sweaters look amazing! 

We're planning a class for the autumn term too, so watch this space!

I love it when people bring things they've knitted from my patterns. Liz brought her St Aubin's Bay shawl to Sitting Knitting on Sunday and I love it! She kindly agreed to model it for me. I love the colour combination, I think I may like it more than my original. The purpley grey is Aracaunia but I'm not sure which base it is but it's beautiful! And I don't remember which yarn the pink is but I would love a St Aubin's Bay shawl in this colour combination.

On Tuesday I was at Spin A Yarn teaching my Easy Lace workshop to a group of 7 ladies. We had a great day. I think they all enjoyed getting to grips with lace knitting and adding beads.

On Wednesday, I finally got the Easy Lace Club parcels out the door. They're a week late and I do apologise to club members for that. It's all due to the awful headaches and severe back/neck pain I've suffered from on and off since Unravel a month ago (the pain has been more on than off) but I think it's getting better now.
