Knitting workshop in winter

The knitting workshops are a lovely highlight for us, and we were very excited to welcome 8 wonderful knitters to a wintery Saturday full of yarn, knitting, chatting, tea and coffee, alpacas and even some snow!

We started the day trying on garments, discussing yarn colours and deciding on which project to go for. We had a few people choosing accessories and some deciding on slightly bigger projects. Everyone quickly made their choices and cast on for their project.

After a couple of hours of hard concentration it was time for a break. We managed to time the alpaca visit with the heavy snow fall and although this has created some lovely photos, it was very cold and in hindsight maybe not the best choice! Lesson learned for future, see the alpacas when weather is good! 

After the visit to the alpacas, we made our way back inside where lunch was ready. Home made bread, onion quiche, roast potato salad, quinoa salad and green salad gave everyone plenty of options. Sweet treats were chocolate and cranberry cookies and coconut meringues accompanied by plentifull of coffees and teas.

After lunch we got back to the knitting and everyone were making excellent progress. Everyone receives individual attention to suit there level and we aim for everyone to leave the workshop feeling like they have gained new skills and hopefully new friends too! 

Gillian even finished one of her wrist warmers! This might be the first time ever someone has finished something at the workshop. We were most impressed!

The next workshop date is the 11th of March and we have still got a few places available. You can book your place by placing your deposit online here. You can see the full list of available dates on our news and events page. We have recently added dates for April through to June.

See you at a workshop soon?
