Yarn O'Clock

There's always time for yarn…

Workshops on Saturday 22nd January 2022

On Saturday 22nd January 2022, Kath Andrews will be running two workshops for us, in St Mary’s Church Hall, Kings Street.

As space in the shop is limited, we have decide to see how a larger venue works for our events. So we will start with this day and see, hopefully we will be able to host more events.

Finishing Techniques

10.00am – 12.30pm

Learn to block and seam your knitting to give fabulous end results. Learn to pick up stitches, make neat buttonholes and how to choose the right type of increase and decrease for your project.

You will be supplied with 2 pre-blocked pieces of knitting to seam which you will turn into a knitted purse by adding a buttoned flap.

Skills required: cast on, cast off, knit, purl.

Equipment to bring: 4mm needles, tapestry needle, everything else will be supplied.

Introduction to Sock Knitting

Learn all the steps of knitting a top-down sock on double pointed needles: Cast-on, ribbing, leg, heel flap, heel turn, gusset, foot, toe, grafting. 

We will be working on a scale that means you can complete the whole sock in the workshop!

Skills required: cast on, knit, purl, k2tog, ssk.

Equipment to bring: 3mm short double pointed needles (you can buy these from the shop if needed), tapestry needle. Everything else will be supplied.

Each workshop is £30, a £10 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your place, remember to book early as there are only 6 spaces on each workshop.
