Squeeeee - I'm so excited. ALL my stash and equipment is going to be stored in orderly and shipshape fashion in the new workshop/studio up in the attic - and it got plastered yesterday! Now, all it needs are some cupboards, the electrics and light fittings and a carpet - then I'm all set to decorate and move in the furniture! Really, this is SO exciting. My dream of becoming a fully fledged knitting designer and teacher is underway.
I'm also running a few workshops in the next couple months:
In the village - at my good friend Ruth's glorious house up Mapstone Hill - kitchen a la Provence, scrubbed wooden tables, cats curled up in front of (if not IN) the Aga, dresser piled high with eclectic china and OODLES of room - KNITTING 101 - an introduction to the basics. Starts Wednesday April 17th 10-12am, and runs for 6 weeks. Very reasonable at £36 per person, minimum of 3 to run, and maximum of 8. Refreshments provided - bring your own yarn/needles.
At the HUB in Ipplepen - two Saturday courses: the first is on March 23rd 10-1pm and will be all about the magical moebius cast on - the second is on April 20th 10-4pm and will be all about FairIsle/stranded knitting and working with colour. Refreshments available from the cafe - £16 for the half day, £26 for the full day.
