CH 15: Learning to knit in Brixton Village

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Mwah Mwah!!

Feeling soggy here in the UK right now… but never soppy.

We talk about how much we love Ravelry….this heart shaped icon for Valentines day is just one of the many reasons why!

Thank you for all the suggestions for finding more time to knit and colorwork resources, following on from last week’s episode.

Following your recommendations, I’ve signed up to do Sunne Myer’s Stranded Colourwork Class on Craftsy*. I will report back on progress!

What’s in the WIP?

Follow your Arrow by Ysolda Teague. I said on the podcast I had finished clue 2 but I have just realised I’m only halfway through! I have only done one out of two repeats!

I also planned and knit some fingerless mitts for my beginners knitting workshop on Tuesday night.

I ended up adapting Paula’s Mildred Mitts pattern to Aran weight yarbbecause the lovely folks at Rowan sponsored my Knitting 101 workshop and sent us some beautiful Rowan Aran 100% wool for my Brand Amplifier brigade.
