Our first Workshops
What a wonderful couple of days we had last week, running our first workshops as Wool Winders.
We started on Thursday with our Finishing techniques, mastering mattress stitch for different seams and stitches. We perfected picking up stitches, talked blocking and discussed putting in sleeves.
On Friday we started the day developing Fairisle skills, learning how to catch in floats, change yarns and not get in a tangle. Then after lunch we had a fun afternoon knitting Cabled hats and tea cosies. Even with distractions of tea, cake and lots of chatting many hats and teacosies were completed by the end of the afternoon!
Finally on Saturday Alison and I had a very exciting day out, planning a possible new Knitting escape day.... watch this space!
Thank you to everyone who attended and let us know how much they enjoyed their workshops. Our next selection of workshops and Escape days will be announced soon, on our Newsletter, Instagram and Facebook.
Until then, Happy knitting
