Oct 2009 - Sat or Sun Charity Workshop

What a great day was had by all who attended our Charty Workshop! approximately 20 members across the 2 days, enjoyed a great day knitting. 

Liz McM starting off in the mornings by demonstrating how to do a basic hat on a single bed machine.  When we returned after lunch she demonstrated how to make mittens complete with a thumb!  Both the hat and mittens were done on the same tension throughout, I used a Bramwell yarn and found T7 ok. 

The patterns were basic and so the possibilities were endless, different yarns, adding fairisle punchcards etc etc.

For our final demonstation, Liz set up her ribber and main bed in a 2x1 fishermans rib variation and using a Yeoman Yarn, did the most fantastic scarf!

We all left the workshop full of ideas for Hats, Scarfs and Mittens, to make for presents or for local charities.

Many thanks to Liz Mc M for giving us so much of her time, it is greatly appreciated
