It’s Time to Knit Everybody!
Two of our Knit Cafe Classes have headed to the out of doors to enjoy the lovely weather we’ve been having over the last week.
No need to worry about messes and drips when you bring the dye pots outside. We had a great Natural Dying Class last weekend with three dye pots on the go.
We got some magnificent results too. Just look at this yummy cochineal dye bath.
We also dyed with Logwood (the purple) and marigold (the yellow). Superwash merino really sucked up the dye and came out the deepest in tone but we had great variation with other fibres too.
Our class today also thought they would like to be out in the sunshine. I sure am glad we have such a lovely place to sit. It was so nice to see a group of crocheters happily stitching away on their crochet market bags in our sunny backyard retreat.
This week – don’t miss out on the Chevron Crochet Blanket Class, where students will learn how to Zig and how to Zag – crochet style!
