Knitter on the inside
As knitting season is upon us once more, I have ventured back into the world, and found that behind the blue door lies a fantastic new venue for my knitting workshops: the Malvern Cube. Formerly a youth centre, and now a vibrant community hub, with U3A classes, fitness groups, a cinema club, repair and diy café and theatre troupe, plus an excellent actual Café, the Mavern Cube will now also house knitting workshops - three between now and the New Year, to be precise.
At present, the plan is to run workshops on approximately a monthly basis, and to begin by sharing beginner / intermediate level skills. Full details are available on the Events page, but the outline is that:
On 25th October I will be teaching Beyond the Knit Stitch, a class designed to take new knitters from the Garter Stitch scarf into the bright world of purl, rib, moss and slipped stitches, so that the world is their oyster. 10am-1pm, the Meeting Room, Malvern Cube. £25 including materials and equipment kit.
On 22nd November it's the turn of Lace to be the star of the show. Simple textured stitches, directional decreases, yarnovers and chart-reading - what more could you ask for? Well, there's an exclusive pattern for a simple and elegant lace stole, for which the yarn and needles are provided as part of your equipment kit! 10am-1pm, the Meeting Room, Malvern Cube. £25 including materials and equipment kit.
Just in time for Christmas decorating, on 6th December I'm teaching my Beginner's Sock class. From an introduction to knitting on 4 needles through cuff, heel and toe, this class is brilliant fun, and by the end of the morning, you'll have a mini Christmas stocking to add to your advent calendar! 10am-1pm, the Meeting Room, Malvern Cube. £25 including materials and equipment kit.
So if you know a knitter who'd like to know more, or a garter stitch genius out to broaden their horizons, please do let them know. Places can be reserved by emailing me (ruthcrafts [at] ruthv [dot] co [dot] uk).
