You Can Knit

It was a "blast off" day last Saturday for a spring series of ten sessions of knitting course for beginners, and what a lovely start it was! The class takes place in a spacious room situated in an old building on Upper St, N1. In the middle of the room there is a large round table, which got covered completely by various knitting "paraphernalia".




There is a lot to get one's teeth into... Various knitting implements:




A few pieces from my collection to exemplify the scope of possibilities:




Ample reference materials to inspire and facilitate:



A handful of samples, just because:



The class is tiny, and its size has a lot of appeal for me as I have been so busy lately that I am in serious need for some kind of "refuge" from my mad day-to-day frenzy of activities. I'm really looking forward to choosing and making a start on our projects - I think I should start something new as well (Oh, please have mercy, do not point out to me how many unfinished projects I already have hanging around!) Saturday morning was very enjoyable, a course sandwiched between 2 leisurely bike rides, and then I got home to find out that everyone was out in the park so I decided to read in bed. And then as to round off day's perfection children appeared in the door completely "invisible" behind a huge bouquet of spring flowers. The scent of these flowers is something out of this world!

PS: I cannot believe that I have checked out of the blogging world for so long. I swear, it felt like a week to me! Bear with me guys, I am very curious to find out what you've all been up to. Need to make time for rambling around people's blogs instead of bedtime stories :)
