A big thanks to Clare at Castaway Yarns for hosting a fabulous 'How to knit' workshop yesterday and allowing me to teach six fabulous girls 'How to knit' in her lovely Little Yarn Store in Haxby, on the outskirts of York.
None of the girls who attended the workshop had ever picked up a pair of knitting needles prior to lunchtime yesterday and by late afternoon everyone had learnt how to read a ball band, how to cast on, how to knit, how to purl, how to increase, how to decrease, how to cast off, how to knit a tension square. Everyone left the workshop with their first knitting pattern , knitting needles and ball of yarn. Clare provided us all with beautiful cakes, made by a friend of hers who is starting her own cake making business, and endless supplies of tea and coffee. The cakes were scrumptious.
Thank you Claire, it was a lovely day!
