Hats off!

Woolly Workshop

We’re delighted to say that last Saturday’s Hat Design Workshop with Woolly Wormhead was a huge success!

Her guiding principle is that everyone has a hat that suits them, even if they haven’t found it yet, so in spite of the heat, we had great fun trying on the hats she’d brought with her. And that was more than thirty hats!

The workshop involved plenty of maths (that calculator got a real workout), so everyone left with new-found confidence in designing knitwear from first principles. Since it lasted all day, there was even time for some speedy knitters to go home with completed hats, and we’re looking forward to seeing the others in all their glory! (If you’re the proud maker of one, we’ve got a Ravelry thread here for you to post pictures for us to admire, or tell us about it in the comments below.)

So huge thanks to Woolly – we’re hoping to have her back to give another workshop next year!

But that’s not all – we’ve got other special guest workshops coming this Autumn. First of all, we’re looking forward to the arrival of Ysolda at the end of August. Her workshop is currently full, but you can add your name to the waiting list at this link It works on a “fastest finger first” basis, so register your interest and if a space comes free, you’ll get an email to alert you.
