Worshops and the Woolly bus

I’m recovering from my first 2 sessions in my new job & a 3 hour felt workshop. I had great fun & from the noise the 14 participants made I think they enjoyed it too. I have signed up to help raise money for the Martlets hospice in Hove, I will be knitting squares for sponsorship. There is a bus stop on the seafront in Brighton opposite the Old Ship hotel that has been covered in knitting too. check it out in the Argus here

Workshops and keeping fit

Finally after almost a year of being unemployed I had a choice of 2 jobs. Tough decision but  I am now employed to take exercise classes in nursing homes around Sussex. Hopefully it will keep me fit too.
I will still be running workshops (in my free time) the first of which is next Wed in Isfield. I will be able to keep my etsy shop stocked and have a little time to complete an NVQ in customer services.
I am running a knitting workshop in March at Furniture Now in Lewes as part of the Knit 1 Pass It On campaign.This is a new national campaign to encourage knitters to pass on their skills to at least one other person.
