Free knitting workshops

Free knitting sample by Jenny Stacy
This is the kind of thing we'll be doing on Wednesday afternoon (16th). I call it free knitting - a  patchwork of different yarns and stitches aiming at a knubbly interesting whole. I did this piece a while ago and have taught a few workshop using it as a sample. Now I would add in bits of crochet. One of these days I'd like to have cushions (imagine a bean bag) covered in this form of knitting. It's great fun to do, especially in a group sat round a table.

The central table in Handmade Happiness will seat 5 comfortably so that's the size of the workshop. Wednesday January 16th, 2-4pm. Ring 01730 267711 if you want to join in or pop in to the shop. Oh yes and sorry it's not a free knitting workshop. It costs £10.

A friend delivered a great big pile of Fiberarts magazines yesterday for me to sell on. This American magazine showing textile artists' work is a bit special. Come and have a look.
