It's been a busy start....

.... to the beginning of the year, just as it was at the end of last year, a busy end!

I really haven't stopped!  I have been teaching some wonderful ladies, both from here at home & at KnitWits in Blandford Forum, where I also now have a little part time job (3 hours a week).

Well that is bliss - working in a wool shop!!  It's really interesting meeting "woolly" people and helping them to find what they are looking for.

KnitWitsBlandford This is a link to their Facebook Page.  They stock the more "unusual" yarns like Noro (Japanese) and Bergere de France.

Back to what's been happening at Get Hooked.

Well, the other day I took a "make a mouse trophy head" class.  I got permission from the book Publishers to share this pattern with my pupils & they loved it.  "It was a bit fiddly to start with" was the general consensus, but they were working with 4ply wool (merino) and a 2mm hook, so a big change from normal tools!

 I know that you may have seen these photos before

 However I thought I'd share them again as the Hedgehogs are so adorable!
This was a class I took pre Christmas

Did you get your copy of Inside Crochet Issue 73?  Well if not you missed out on my Sampler Blanket which I am so glad to have back now.

It adorns my living room, when its not in my classroom being admired by my pupils.

Don't be scared - thats me without any make up on.  I made a design for an easy Cable Crochet Headband & I have put the pattern on my website 
 I  have also been busy taking bookings for my "Crochet Days in Dorset"

March, for Improvers is fully booked as is April for Beginners, so I have added another Beginners weekend in May.  If your interested in attending, then go to this link to book your place.

 Until next time, remember to....
