Step Up

News just to hand, there are some places still left in the knitting workshops at Craft ACT this weekend.

There's Lost in Translation session on Saturday and the not-to-be-missed double-bill on Sunday

Short Circuit Scarf: Denise Sutherland
Sunday 22 July, 10am to 11:30am
Learn how the magic of short rows can help you create a stunning curly whirly scarf, designed by a Canberra knitter (that would be me *blush*).
Bring 1 ball of 8-12 ply smooth soft yarn (not mohair, boucle, feathers, eyelash, etc), 1 pair of knitting needles that suit the weight of yarn or a bit bigger (eg 4-5mm needles of 8ply yarn).
Skill level - easy, all you need to know is how to cast on and knit. Pattern sheet provided.

New sock pattern???? Someone has a new sock pattern....I'm a sucker for new sock patterns or old sock patterns (and anything in between)...okay now you know my weakness.

I'll be there in spirit. Still pissy about missing out on the knitting first aid class.

Have you seen any of your TTWCs worn in public yet?
