I ventured into the garden for the first time today (I am strictly a fair weather gardener) and ripped up a lot of weeds ready to grass the bottom part of the garden. I had had a very lazy morning watching the London Marathon trying to spot my friend Kate in the crowds so I did need to get off my arse and do something as it is such a nice day. Although it was a good excuse to knit all morning, I didn’t manage to see Kate.
One of my current knitting projects is Sailor from Rowan Magazine 55, with Softknit Cotton. It’s knitted in the round and is looking great so far. I have just got to the striped yoke so it won’t be long before it’s finished. It is so exciting waiting to start the stripes, I highly recommend it.
As it’s the Easter holidays now I have done my last workshops for a couple of weeks. I had a great time teaching Learn to Crochet at John Lewis in Milton Keynes. It was a very successful day!
This week I was at Guthrie and Ghani in Moseley teaching another great bunch of ladies how to make an A-line skirt from their own measurements. It has proved so popular that we have added yet another date so if you are thinking about learning to dressmake it would be lovely to see you there in June.
I think I deserve a huge glass of wine after my gardening efforts.
Happy knitting and sewing!
