Hosts for the weekend retreats are Belinda Harris-Reid and Brenda M. Watson + tea and cake, sea, luxury yarn in your hands, wonderful projects to make, laughter, wine, delicious food, knitting and more knitting and chat ... oh and paddling (if the ocean is warm enough).

The fabulous Donna Bell of Colour Me Beautiful will be hosting eight afternoon sessions for us; Do you know the colours that suit you best? I'll help you to discover not only your best shades, but the best ways to wear them. Team this with the perfect style for you, and you can say goodbye to knitting projects that you have to give away because they look wrong on you.

LEARNAWAY
March Thursday 4th – Sunday 7th
NAME OF EVENT: Project workshop: Knitted and then felted Needle Wrap (for double-pointed needles or crochet hooks)
Host for Saturday workshop: Alison Crowther-Smith
Donna Bell presents a session on Colour me Beautiful + £20 for Friday afternoon
AVAILABLE: TBL, SSK

A simple slip stitch colourwork case that is then felted in the washing machine. The case is designed to fit standard length DPNs or crochet hooks. It is knitted flat using 2 shades of yarn.To participate you need basic knitting skills, and to be able to read a pattern. The colour work is fast and very straightforward. It is not Fairisle.

On this course, you also have the option of knitting one or two small squares of stocking stitch beforehand to bring along and try Shibori techniques at The Knitting Hotel to felt on the day. Shibori means to manipulate or shape the fabric before it is felted. I will also bring examples of how to felt your handknits to create beautiful bags, scarves and other accessories. One of my aims is to give you the knowledge and confidence to try felted knitting.

To knit the needle case you will need:
1 x 50g ball of Rowan Felted Tweed in shade A
1 x 50g ball of Rowan Felted Tweed in shade B – yarns A & B need to have sufficient contrast to make the colourwork viable, e.g., light and dark blue
4mm needles

I have specified Rowan Felted Tweed because I know this yarn will give me the dimensions I need when felted. You can substitute the yarn, but I cannot be sure how it will come out. If substituting, make sure you choose 100% or high wool content yarn, and that it is not machine washable/superwash. To experiment with Shibori techniques, please bring 1 or 2 squares of stocking stitch knitted in Rowan Felted Tweed, on 4mm needles, casting on 40 stitches and working until approx square. This is entirely optional but if you fancy this, I will bring marbles and thread along so you can have a go.
