Click, click.

As well as teaching knitting I've also begun to write the blog for the Carolyn Rose Sewing School. I've been writing about the different classes available and this week I got to my knitting classes so I thought I would share it with you.

Click, click.

We don’t immediately associate knitting with sound. However, when I’m teaching a beginner to knit, it’s the ‘Click, Click’ of the needles that brings back the strongest memories. It evokes memories of our grandmother or mother knitting when we were children. It’s one reason why I love teaching knitting, as it brings out of people much more than a simple desire to knit a scarf. It’s a hobby that people want to share with others, whether creating gifts or joining ‘Knit and Natter’ groups, and it gives a great sense of accomplishment.

If you have never knitted before, the Knitting Circle class aims to give you enough skills to go off and try a project for yourself. This means looking at how to interpret patterns, as well as learning the skills to actually knit them. But also, if you already can knit but just need some guidance, it’s a fun place to learn.
See the ‘Classes’ page for details.

If you are a knitting enthusiast already or are curious about picking it up, please come to our Bergere De France Open Day on Friday 21st Feb from 11am- 3pm.

The rep is coming to show us lots of great yarns and accessories and you will get 10% off Bergere products on the day.
And if you are looking for something to fill the last days of half term, Bergere do really lovely kids’ wool and needles.

We hope you can join us.
