Biscuits Eaten: Tooo many to count
Texts received: 2 (nobody loves me today)
At last, have finished hubbies Valentines present, Socks. His first pair of hand knit socks, each stitch representing my love for him (ok confession, a few were knitted in anger). Miracle of miracles they fit him perfectly! (Cable Rib Socks Erica Alexander Interweave Knits Spring 2005 in Elle Yarn Storm).
Then I finished the small cabled and beaded cushion which I started on Friday. I went to a workshop at The Knit Tin, taught by Debbie Abrahams. I will post pictures when I have added the finishing touches (buttons).
I really must recommend The Debbie Abraham workshops at The Knit Tin, Debbie is a fantastic teacher whose patience knows no boundaries, she is willing to help with any knitting queries, project related or not. The kits which she provides for the day are well designed and you leave at the end of the day with new skills (with comprehensive notes so that you can remember your newly learnt tricks) enough materials to complete your project. But most importantly new friends who share your enthusiasm for knitting.
The Knit Tin is a wonderful venue situated in its own private space above the shop, it has plenty of natural daylight and a pleasant airy feel. Fantastic food is served during your day including, BISCUITS of course. Even better is the 10% discount on all purchases made on the day, so don't forget your flexible friend! (You have been warned)
