Magic Loop two at a time - socks

Friday 15th November

10am to 4pm

Venue - Ditzy Rose, Tattenhall

In this workshop you will learn how to knit using the magic loop on a circular needle.

 

Master this and it opens the door to knitting 2 socks at a time, avoiding suffering from ‘second sock syndrome’. Sleeves or mitts can also be worked 2 at a time, the added bonus for sleeves is there is no sewing up to be done.

Molly will show you how to set up a magic loop and cover the pitfalls to look out for as the work grows. Having mastered 1 loop, you will be shown how to set up 2 loops on 1 circular needle and begin work on a pair of fingerless mitts.

 

You will be provided with a detailed worksheet as a reminder of the skills taught.

Skills needed – ability to cast on/off and to knit.

 

Cost: £25 - A minimum of 25% deposit per place booked is required at time of booking to secure your place.

Coil Pots 

Saturday 23rd November

10.30am to 12.30pm

Venue - Molly Brown's, Elmwood Ave, Hoole, Chester

Make a coil pot using a sewing machine – These lovely pots are quite addictive to make and mesmerising to watch them grow on your machine.

In this 2 hour workshop held in homely surroundings you will make your own pot. Molly will demonstrate how to add handles and wrap the cord with fabric to add variation and colour to your pots.

The uses for the pots are too many to list here and they can be made in a variety of sizes and make an ideal gift. However, they are an attractive way to hold the laundry bag and eco-friendly facial wipes which you can make in my other workshop to be held later on in the day.Book both workshops and you will be able to enjoy a delicious homemade vegan soup free of charge.

You will receive a detailed worksheet of useful hints and tips to remind you for when you want to make more at home fior giving to friends and familly. Familiarity with using a sewing machine is useful, but not essential.

 

Price of workshop including all materials and use of sewing machines - £20

Pretty Laundy Bag and eco-friendly face wipes

Saturday 23rd November

2.00pm to 4.00pm

Venue - Molly Brown's, Elmwood Ave, Hoole, Chester

Here is a perfect little gift for an eco conscious friend.

 

Make these washable facial wipes, for use instead of wet wipes. Use them time and time again.

 

To go with them, make a very pretty laundry bag to wash the eco wipes in. A lovely bag with an appliquéd motif and snap fasteners to secure the bag.

 

This is a perfect partner for the ‘Coil Pot’ workshop in the morning. Give both items as a gift, use the bowl to keep the clean wipes in and the laundry bag to wash them, so they are all kept together. Book on both workshops and join Molly for a light lunch.

​Familiarity with using a sewing machine is useful, but not essential.

Price £20 and includes all materials and use of sewing machines.
