This weekend I have been lucky enough to take 6 bookings for my November workshops, so that means Wednesday Evening are full booked & Tuesday mornings have only 2 places left. I also have a "Next Step"workshop running on Thursdays which is being filled with ladies from my previous beginners courses in September & October.
My last lesson for last week was with Mum & Daughter
I really enjoyed teaching them both
This is B the Daughter
And this is S the Mum
In the 2 hour workshop that flew by, they learnt the basics of a Foundation Chain, Double Crochet, Half Trebles & the much needed Trebles for the Granny Squares that they want to make
& didn't they do fantastically well!!
With great stitch work and nice STRAIGHT edges thanks to my crocheters best friend - The Stitch Marker!
So that workshop was a great way to end the week & to start my WEEK OFF!
Yes I am taking all of next week off so I will be free from teaching, however, with the recent demand, I won't be free from organising workshops for 2014 as I am already adding names to a growing list!
I have found time to start working on a hat designed by the lovely Claire Montgomerie.
It's a slouchy beanie that is started from the brim up. I have to confess here that I have never worked a hat from the brim up before & I am really enjoying it.
If you want to make this hat too, then buy Inside Crochet Issue 47 or go to
www.insidecrochet.co.uk to get the digi version
I have also made Squares 299 & 300 for my Twitter blanket which is keeping more warm as I Join As I Go!
