Well, the sock workshop with Ros the other week went really well - most of us there were fairly experienced knitters, but not necessarily using more than two needles, so it was quite a learning curve. (I did a similar workshop over the summer, in another place, but I have to say we are really lucky having Ros to show us what to do. The lady I went to had been knitting for years, and certainly knew her stuff, but at the end of the day I was none the wiser about how to knit with four needles. It really isn't helpful when teachers undo your knitting when you go for lunch, and then re-do it for you).
Ros was wearing the beautiful scarf we shall be learning to knit this Wednesday - she assured us it is quite easy, because the pattern part is only 30 stitches or so across. We shall see..... There are still a couple of place if anyone wants to join us.
Anyway, back to socks, and the following Pitch and Stitch when we all turned up with half of a pair of socks and lots of questions for Ros before we could carry on to make a pair.
We decided Eileen's was probably the neatest:
and some people didn't want theirs photographed until they were finished.
The workshop is quite full these days
with lots of interesting things going on. Anthea has been making some lovely dresses
Not my area of expertise, but I did replace some buttons for my mother
- some lovely new buttons:
Sandra brought in the place mats she will be showing us how to make on the 5th December
either Christmas fabrics or everyday.
And finally, just to put me to shame, Jan has finished the first Medallion she ever started
I should be quilting mine but I have a bit of knitting to do first.....
