                   Beginners Knitting One to One Tuition - 2 hours  - £50

                You’ve got all those wonderful yarns, hand spun or commercial.

                What are you going knit?

                Do you have the skills to knit or do you need help?

At the end of this course you should go away with a sample, learnt why your knitting tension is your own and how that affects the needle size.With the knowledge and skills you gain from this course you can begin your first project with confidence.

If you want to bring your own yarn and needles, please let Sue know.



How to get the best results from Knitting your hand spun yarn - 4 Hours - £100

This 4 hour  Knitting course is aimed at anyone who has yarn and needs to find the best way to knit that yarn. This course assumes that you can cast on and use a knit and purl stitch.

The tension square is the answer, by knitting a series of samples, small tension squares on various needle sizes, will allow the knitter to obtain good results.

Confidence building is the aim of the course.

Over the years I have known so many hand spinners who have produced mountains of their own hand spun yarn, but have never knitted, crocheted or woven that yarn into a useful item or garment. This is such a shame as it is a waste of talent and skill.  The knowledge and skills that you learn on this course will mean that your hand spun yarn can be transformed into stylish garments or accessories, not just lay forlornly in a basket.

This 4 hour course will encourage you to bring your own  hand spun yarn out of hiding and to discuss your ideas for end use. If you have a knitting pattern/s in mind, please bring it along to the course. You can bring your own knitting needles if you prefer.



At the end of this course, you should go away with lots of samples and ideas for using your own yarn and how to interpret knitting patterns more successfully or even to start writing your own knitting patterns.
