From Here to Materknitty

materknittyI have just finished developing a brand new knitting course aimed exclusively at parents and parents to be (and of course grandparents). It’s a one day class to learn basic knitting skills, with simple patterns for newborns that even a beginner could manage (the hat is simply garter stitch with a few k2tog for shaping).

Recently some rather lovely friends announced they are about to be parents for the first time and an even lovelier friend is about to become a Grandmother. None of them knit or crochet, but they all want to make something special for the new baby. I devised this course just for them and remembering how many excited Grandmothers used to visit Fibre and Clay in search of simple knitting projects for newborns I’m sure there’s a demand.

I’ll be running the first of these classes on 14th September at Make with Mabel in Knutsford and you can download the  From Here to Materknitty flier for more information and booking details here. I’ve designed three patterns which will only be available to course participants (although as I love knitting baby clothes so much I may release them later as a collection).

If you do have any “expectant” friends, do let them know. Meanwhile, if you’re an “expectant knitter, do check out “What to Knit When You’re Expecting”, a fabulous book full of lovely projects.

Thank you!

ps the dainty blue socks hanging on the washing line do not feature in this workshop, but I will be releasing the pattern shortly.

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today

I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
