I know it has been quite a while since I’ve delighted you all with my ramblings, but we have been very busy here at Stash.
From around 10.30am to 12.30pm we have a lovely group of knitters and crocheters, all busy – chatting and drinking coffee and treating themselves to a cake or cookie… and of course perusing the latest arrivals.
We do have a Ravelry group – Stitches@Stash
We have also re-started our workshops for the year and the first one was last Friday – Freeform Knitting and Crochet. I was able to sneak off and join in, which was fun as it is something I have never done. Bee kept us all on track and busy all day, the time just flew by. Here are our scrumbles with and without the refreshments…
Here’s what they are aiming for
We have had a little time to start an SMC Lofty scarf, here’s what we have so far…
We have had a group of ladies in today, some learning to knit and others brushing up on their knitting skills. They have been vey busy all day and kept supplied with homemade cakes and biscuits (thank you Katie – I have managed to sneak a piece of cake … yummy).
We still have a few spaces left on the October workshop for learning to knit Zimmermann style (fair isle knitting with 2 hands!). Hopefully Katie will be able to bake some cakes….
We have fixed another Saturday date for your diaries – Saturday 16th April we will be opening our doors to you from 11am till 4pm.
We will be on hand to assist with any queries you may have or just for a discussions on which colour would be best!
We hope you will be able to join us for a drink and biscuits, possibly cake, for those of you who joined us before Christmas you know how good Helen’s cake is!
And if you are wanting to join us for the ‘Knitting in the Round‘ workshop – places are limited and filling so get in touch!
Come and spend the day learning ‘how to’ with Beryl and all of us here.
Hopefully it will be on the website soon with all the details.
We will be open again on Tuesday 4th January so wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a yarnful New Year.
Yet another successful Rowan Workshop at Stash Fine Yarns last Friday 16th April. Heike Gittins introduced the ten eager ladies to the wonders of producing beautiful fine pieces quite simply by using the finest quality yarns, in this case Rowan’s Kidsilk Haze knitted on some of the World’s best needles, Addi, Knit Pro and Signature. Hand made chocolate cookies went well with the tea/coffee for elevenses, followed by a freshly prepared buffet lunch at 1pm…ish.
Every one was very chatty, making new friends and sharing their passion with like minded people. A delivery of the brand new Manos Del Uruguay Lace and Manos Del Uruguay Lace Patterns caused quite a stir, hardly giving us any chance to get this delicious yarn out of the box! It really is quite gorgeous, 12 shades made of 75% baby Alpaca , 20% Silk, 5% Cashmere with approx 439yds/400m per 50g skein. One skein will make a scarf – all for £11.95! Fantastic!
The afternoon was finished off with some more hot and cold drinks and iced donuts! Everyone had left by about 5pm, armed with their new knowledge and clutching their 10% discounted purchases, eager to get home and try out their new skills. Thanks go to Heike for sharing her skills with everyone. The next workshop, a ‘Tunisian Crochet’ workshop is scheduled at Stash on Friday 7th May.

We all had a lovely day yesterday (3rd November) when we hosted a fabulous Professional Finishing Techniques Workshop by Emma King. Emma, a renowned Rowan Design Consultant, is an exciting young knitting designer, whose passion for colour, texture and uniquely modern designs inspire all….
The day was such a success and enquiries for the course well outstripped available places that we have asked if Emma could possibly run another for us in the near future. We hope to announce another day shortly for some time after New Year so watch this space or checkout our list of forthcoming Rowan Workshops on our website at:- http://www.celticove.com/acatalog/Knitting_and_Crochet_Workshops_at_Stash_Fine_Yarns.html
