So first things first! Thank you all for all your lovely birthday wishes. I really loved hearing from so many of you and it gave me some perspective on why you come to this space to read.
And so without further ado - the books will be heading out to Justine who left the following comment on the blog.
And now one more good thing to tell you about today. For those of you coming (or thinking of coming!) then we have one more completely optional class for the Saturday afternoon. It will be run by the super clever Julia Billings and it is the perfect class for all you fibre lovers. Whether you are a crocheter or a knitter or a weaver, having an understanding of what Jules will be sharing will massively increase the amount of success you have with your projects…..
Fibre 101 with Julia Billings
We have access to such a huge array of yarns that choosing the right yarn for a knitting or crochet project can be overwhelming... and yet yarn choice can be the difference between a garment you love and wear forever and a frustrating mess. This class is designed to teach you how to work out the type of yarn best suited to your project and how to find it. Julia will explore the various types of natural fibres and the processes involved in turning them into yarn including scouring, spinning and dyeing. You will learn how these processes influence how a yarn looks, feels and behaves during and after knitting.
I love everything about this class and just wish it had been around 10 years ago when I was a newborn knitter. It would have saved me so much pain and angst.
See you on Friday.
