As explained before, Karin did a workshop with us last year for those people who wanted to learn how to do the ten stitch knitted blanket. Alexis brought hers along the next week so we could see a different way of doing it and from there it has grown and one by one we have been mastering the ten stitch blanket. Once you can turn those corners you are all right but you have to find a way to do it so you are happy. It is very good brain based learning which keeps you thinking and problem solving and then there is always a way of improving both the look

Margaret’s blanket has become a bit infamous. She started it on the bus to Equipment Day and lost her stitches as the bus bumped over the road to the hills so had to abandon it. She has since come back to it and her ten stitch blanket is very much up and running and we were pleased to see it.

Cathy has decided to use her spun wool leftovers to make and practise the blanket. She had to get her self in the right frame of mind and then find a path through the corner turning which she was comfortable with. One by one we are all getting there in our own way and in our own time and it’s good to see how different these blankets can look.
