I had a great day yesterday doing my first Introduction to Crochet Workshop for Social Fabric in Totnes.
The lovely proprietor, Caroline, has recently created a new space in the Devon town of Totnes where people can come together and learn new skills or dust down old ones. We had a wonderful group of ladies who worked extremely hard all day long trying to come to terms with the intricacies of crochet, foundation chains, doubles and trebles etc. Unfortunately I did a silly thing and forgot to take my camera so very few photos, well none from me actually!
Caroline managed to take this one photo of everyone concentrating really hard!!
but unfortunately it is the only one I have.
Despite there being a tremendous amount of information to take in all in one day, everyone managed to learn the art of crochet by the end of it! We all agreed we would need to relax with some wine that evening :)
The ladies kindly left some very appreciative comments which I would like to share with you :)
We all had a very enjoyable day and I hope to be returning very soon to tutor another crochet workshop. Thank you to all the ladies on the workshop and especially to Caroline for supplying us with copious amounts of tea, coffee and biscuits to keep us all going!
Just to keep you informed, my Kidsilk Haze Stripe addiction is coming along. It is definitely going to be a cardigan now! I got the whole 'back' out of one ball of yarn so maybe, just maybe I can manage the rest of the garment out of the 2 balls I have left! Watch this space!
The Hobbycraft project is progressing slowly! I'm hoping they will source the yarn for me this week as time is of the essence! Once I know this I can get planning and start crocheting. They need to get on with it pretty quickly else we may have to postpone it until next year. Once again 'watch this space'! I will reveal all eventually!
Thank you for reading :)
I'm off to Handmade Monday now over at Handmade Harbour. I wonder what everyone else has been up to this week?
