beginners ahoy!

I had the pleasure of introducing some enthusiastic students how to knit and crochet this week at West Dean College in Sussex. It was gloriously sunny autumnal weather and the weekend was lots of fun; filled with great food, great weather, crafting, relaxing and laughter. Just as it should be at West Dean!

This is some of the knitters' great first attempts. They all did fantastically well and there are already plans for more one day tasters of knitting and crochet for improvers!

The lovely thick yarn, with great stitch definition reminds my in a tangible nostalgic way of my primary school knitting. I still have a piece (admittedly in a rather toxic orange colour) I use as a pot holder - it must be 40+ years old!!!!!!

well, that confirms my theory that hand knitting is extremely durable!!
