I was very excited this week to find out that I’ve been accepted for Yarndale again! It was so good last year to meet people who I know from the world of social media, and to see the familiar faces of people I’ve met at workshops, shows and events over the years.
The world of knitting is hugely sociable and I love teaching workshops and going to shows where I can see all your lovely faces! I’ve got lots of exciting things planned over the next few months so I’m hoping to see some of you soon.
In May I will be attending the Frank & Olive Crochet Retreat as a guest tutor.
I met Ruby from Frank & Olive at Yarndale last year, where she was rather taken with the bright colours used in The Knitted Nursery Collection! Ruby creates colourful crochet patterns and ready to buy items as well as running the crochet retreat.
If you’re coming along – we will be making Flutterbies, and I’m also planning a beginners project for anyone who’s never picked up the needles.
In June I will be at Woolfest for the first time!
I don’t have any big plans for July – maybe a bit of gardening!
In August I will be teaching a workshop at The Gardens of The Rose in St Albans.
There will be a whole craft week with various tutors including Erika Knight – so I will be in good company!
On my workshop we will cover sewing up and shaping techniques whilst knitting a little ‘Flock’ bird from The Knitted Nursery Collection.
If you’re interested in booking – just keep an eye on the website and more info will come soon.
And then in September I will be at Yarndale again! I will be selling my books and kits, and I will also be launching an exciting new knit-along for 2017!
I’m in the early planning stages of this at the moment, but I’m really excited about it. The KAL will start on Mon 2nd Jan 2017 and run throughout the year. Yarndale weekend will be your first chance to sign up for the KAL and order a starter pack, which you will receive in December. Don’t worry if you’re not at Yarndale this year – The starter packs and patterns will also be available via my website.
