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.

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx
