Friday's workshop

We had a  'knitting hospital' session at last Friday's workshop. Jane, Julie and Tracey bravely ventured in to the shop with a few crumpled bags of UFOs (Un-Finished Objects). 

Oops, spotted a JL plastic one there - we forgave Julie for that and got them going with rewinding some yarn to start afresh, and some sewing up techniques too.

We had a very relaxing afternoon. They all started a new project and all finished it too.


A fabulous fur collar knitted in Louisa Harding's Luzia and tied with a ribbon.
New colours and patterns for this faux furry yarn will be available next week at Jolie.

Apparently it's autumn

Bizarrely it's still as warm as a summer's day, yet it's the last day of October. Helen came in, in her beautiful lacy cardigan, knitted in Rowan's Panama. A recently finished summer project that she can wear straightaway as the weather is still perfect for it.
