Update to the Tree Breeze blanket and planning my 1st cable workshop
I finally received the photo from Michelle that shows the 'Tree Breeze' blanket in all it's glory. Those cabled trees look stunning and the colours she has chosen are just perfect.
She says she snuggles up with it on the settee on an evening, wrapping it all around her. I think it's great when you can hold your own creation so close.
And see how Billie , her rescued Jack Russel just had to get in on the photo. She always seems to be there when the camera comes out, lol.
Remember how I featured the work in progress photos here - http://bloglaunchfemininetouch.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/the-final-stages-of-tree-breeze-blanket.html.
This beautiful blanket is helping me in designing my very 1st cabling workshop that is it to take place at The Yorkshire Makery (part of the Emporium in Slaithwaite, Huddersfield). It's only going to be a couple of hours long so it will be simply an introduction to cabling, covering some basic and then more unusual cable patterns. Working in squares, clients can potentially sew them together to make cushions (maybe blankets are a little too ambitious at this stage). I plan to cover reading cabling charts and written instructions too. All in a couple of hours !
The 1st session will be Sunday the 11th October from 1:30 - 3:30. I'm still working up the detail and trying to establish a price! If you are interested just let me know and then I can keep you informed.
