Just Knit Rides Again!

Only a little over a week, now, till the next Just Knit course at Knuston Hall!  (Information about the course is on the front page of this blog).  There’s still room on the course, and there are some special things happening, so come along if you can!

And if you can’t come this time, Just Knit is riding again in January – the 18th to the 20th!

Course – and Bridal shawl

I’m very pleased to say that the course at Knuston hall has six students already, so it’s bound to run – I’m very pleased! 🙂

A friend of ours is having a wedding! Well, his son is having the wedding – and it’s in Kazakhstan! I can’t go because of other commitments, but husband has suggested I make a shawl for the bride, and I’ve been told that red might be a good colour choice.

Since this allows me to work with Zauberball lace again, I’m happy! 

The pattern I’m using is Utsukushii (Ravelry link).  As always with lace, it doesn’t look like much till it’s blocked, but so far, I’m enjoying the colour changes…

Knitting course!

Please feel free to advertise this far and wide! 🙂  I’m teaching a weekend knitting course at the beautiful Knuston Hall, in Jnauary.  It’s called Just Knit

When I say, “teaching”…. The days are there for you to make what you will of them.  I’ll be there, along with a lot of my finished objects and things I’m working on, with plenty of materials and books and so on – you can come along as a complete beginner and try your hand, or you can bring your own unfinished objects and just knit away in a lovely environment, or bring something you’ve been struggling with, to get friendly help (still in a lovely place)!  If the weather is nice, we can sit outside and knit….

The food at Knuston is always very good, and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful.

During the course, as I say, I will have lots of things to see and try, and lots of books to flick through…. I’ll also have Ravelry up and running, for those who haven’t yet joined, so you can see what riches await you there.

Do consider coming along – think how lovely it will be to knit with friendly people, and no distractions!
