Knitting Workshop with Marie Wallin

Its ages since I've been on a workshop.  Several of my knitting friends, even though they are pretty nifty with the needles and have loads of experience have enjoyed Marie Wallin's workshops, so when one came up, with Mosaic Knitting at its core, I was interested.  It was a lovely way to spend the day and also catch up with knitting friends from Stratford.

Linda kindly offered me a lift and it was a lovely day to drive out to Brooksby Hall near Melton Mobray.  We sat in what would have been the entrance hall, the light from the windows was superb, and make concentrating on the pattern quite easy.  It is made even easier with strips of highlighter tape, and now I am home, I have arranged my sheets in a folder in plastic inserts and it really easy to move the tape along.  Also today my own roll of highlighter tape arrived as Kenilworth Diane had ordered one for each of us.

and here is the one that Marie has knitted earlier

rather liked the look of this lovely hot water bottle cover....


  1. Gorgeous - I'm still in awe of your ability to knit with two colours!

  2. Just learning, but using two types of hold with a colour in each hand, certainly challenges the brain...but that is what it is all about!
