After visiting our local farm last month, I asked the Manager whether I could have a stand at the monthly craft market to see whether the locals would be interested in one-off beginners’ knitting workshops. He agreed, so I arrived early to set up a stall. I bought some of my own knitting, some spare knitting needles and some odd bits of yarn in a basket.
After Friday’s downpour in London, we were a bit worried that it would rain today, but the weather was lovely this morning. I manage to get some interest and a potential commission. A young girl knitted a pink bow and she also made some pom poms which she plans on turning into a hair clip. My daughter also joined in the fun mainly making pom poms and I knitted some leaves, so it was all good fun.
We had to pack up early as it started to rain at 2.30pm. Although we all had a really good time, I still feel that I need to do a lot more research on doing knitting workshops.
I’ve finished two items for the shop, but I still need to wash, block and take some photos before I can list it on Etsy. I’ll blog about it when it’s done.
Have a lovely week everyone and hopefully the weather will improve in London.
