Big Knitting workshop

Well my fears about my shoulder not standing up to the workshop were unfounded. I sat on some mats on the floor and rested the needles on my knees, it worked and I had a great day, lots of laughter and fun. I'm shattered but in a good way! The first photo is Ingrid Wagner, the tutor, you can see some of her work at her website. The second is my first wall hanging and the second is a small test piece I made to see how a felted bead could be attached, I love it and reminds me of a Voodo Doll. I have another white piece made from old white sheeting and terry towelling. It's in the washing machine at the moment as I want to dye it a space dyed pale blue for my bathroom. The textures are great!

wow, this looks like an amazing craft! I did some thing similar with a massive knitting needle and a large crochet hook back in the 70's!

Well done Sheila :)
