It’s amazing how time passes, isn’t it? In just over a month and a half we will be ushering in a new decade!! Wow!! While there’s still lots to do in this one, it’s also necessary to start planning the beginning of the next one as well! At camp Hugzzz, things are buzzing! Not only do I have a major project launching on January 1st (you’ll see more about that in the next blog post), I’m already booking teaching gigs for next year. They’ll line up nicely with the content I need to get for the YouTube show as well which is starting to gain momentum and will be continuing indefinitely for the foreseeable future.
If you’ve never been to Woollinn I can understand as there have only been 2 so far. To say that you need to add it to your bucket list however is an understatement! This is hands down one of my favourite knitting events and I am amazed at the growth it has had in just 2 years!! When you see the work that Lisa and her team from This Is Knit put into it however, it’s not surprising. I’m pleased to announce that next year I will be teaching 2 classes at Woollinn alongside some pretty amazing instructors! The workshop preview is already live and can be found on their website (link above) and tickets will go on sale on November 13th at 4:00 pm GMT. I’ll be teaching 2 classes – 15 Things Knitters Should Know and 2 Handed Fair Isle Technique. Plan which classes you want to take and make sure to set your alarm as I’m sure classes will fill up quickly!
I’ll be doing a special full day workshop at Whistlebare Farm in Northumberland on May 9th, 2019! This is their Grand Day Out event and will be an all inclusive workshop where you’re going to learn a lot about cables!! I’ll show you how to create cables with AND without a cable needle, how to incorporate cables into your work, reading charts, and much more! There’s also two skeins of Whistlebare Yarn, morning coffee/tea and cake, home cooked lunch of soup, bread and local cheese, afternoon coffee/tea with yes, more cake, meeting the livestock and easy farm walk and 10% discount on any purchase made on the day! You can sign up on the website (link above).
Having had a successful campaign in doing workshops at individual stores in the UK, I will in all likelihood do so again while I am over there next year. I’ve already spoken to Ginger Twist Studios and Tribe Yarns so keep an eye out for news about dates and topics. Better yet, join our Close Knit Community to get news of all upcoming events and let me know where you’d like to see me and what you’d like to learn! Watch this space for the special project launching very soon for the start of the new decade!
