Years ago we cleared my mum's house ready for sale and what should there be in the boxroom but just such a garment - every necessary piece of a tiny matinee jacket, but all in bits. Goodness knows who it had been meant for...my brother? a cousin? my nephew? Anyway, whoever it was they never got it but I took it away and sewed it up and saved it because what else could I do? I wasn't a big fan of matinee jackets - my taste was more for brown spotty babygros and the like - but my daughter wore it on her Christening day for about an hour, and I've still got it now.
Anyway, this is all a totally unnecessary preamble to announcing that we're holding a Finishing Techniques workshop at the shop on Sunday, 19th May, from 12-4pm. Cost will be £25 and you'll need to book in advance please.
Here's a couple of photos of our previous workshop - Beginners' Sockknitting - to whet your appetite. Everyone went home with at least the best part of a sock completed!
