Knit your own socks.

Today's title may sound like an order, but it was infact the name of the workshop which started last Saturday.

Here are a couple of pictures of some of the lovely ladies that joined me in the Courtyard Coffeehouse in Brackley for the 1st of three workshops. We cast on in the round and knitted a section of rib. Some people practiced casting on more that once - but we all know that practice makes perfect!! We all left with the first sock well on the way and everyone was smiling - so all in all a success. We will be meeting again on the 27th to learn to turn the heel and at the beginning of March to decrease for the toe and master grafting. This is a picture of our table, so you can see that there was lots going on!

If you would like to learn to knit socks, but missed our workshop this time, keep an eye on the workshop link on the right for future dates.

The other very exciting news is that we have set a date for our first PubCraft Night: 1st March 7.30pm at the Red Lion pub in Brackley. All are welcome, please bring a small crafting project along and prepare to make new crafting friends.

Workshop booking are coming in at a steady trickle, so if there is something that you fancy coming along to, please download a booking form and send it to me to confirm your place.

That's it for now folks. X

and very good it was too.. I practised casting on several more times since, but am glad to say we are on the say to something that resembles a YAY!!
