Knitted Kidsilk Haze Christmas Decorations with Alison Crowther-Smith, Spin A Yarn, Thursday, 21. November 2019

Join us in our award-winning yarn shop in Bovey Tracey for a workshop from inspiring expert teacher and designer Alison Crowther-Smith.
Come and enjoy a festive day at Spin a Yarn. Alsion will be teaching you 2 decorations, both simple and both great fun and easy knits.
First you will knit the ‘Work-in-Progress in a Bauble’ Christmas decoration (pictured above). This is a little piece of beautiful beaded Kidsilk Haze knitting, captured in a bauble.
Alison will gift you each a bauble, and all the makings to complete this little project – you will just need to bring an oddment of Kidsilk Haze (or similar), 4mm needles and a few size 6 beads. Please also bring a fine hand-sewing needle, threaded with c12cm of fine sewing cotton. This is essential to thread the beads.
Next you will knit Christmas Stars:

For this you need to bring DK yarn or Kidsilk Haze (latter will be used held double) and 4mm needles; or 4ply yarn and 3.25mm needles. Plus some beads, size 6, c30 per star and these are optional. The stars also need a small amount of toy stuffing but this is not needed on the day. The stars are knitted flat in 2 halves. You will learn:
How to knit with beads How to pick up and knit How Alison constructed both designs How to complete the decorations
The stars are very fast to make and make good collections for your tree, or as unique knitted festive gifts. From one 50g ball of DK or 1 ball of Kidsilk Haze and c250 beads, I can make 3 – 5 stars.
Please bring your own lunch. There are also many local places to buy lunch nearby.
Tea-time treats and refreshments will also be served.
Either book here through Eventbrite, call 01626 836203 or pop into the shop in person.
Workshop attendees receive a discount voucher on the day, valid for one month from the date of the workshop on yarn and accessories.
