Knit a Garment in a Day???

Yes! It will  just about be possible at our Knitting workshop to be held from 1-4pm on Saturday 23rd of June at Precious Purl!     Cost of workshop is $60. UPDATE: A delicious afternoon tea from the new bakery across the road "Rustica Sourdough" will be provided.

Using big needles (size 15mm) and Chunky yarn we will be inspired by Nikki Gabriels's kits using Geometric shapes that transform into creative garment constructions.

This will be a fun workshop for beginner knitters or those who want to explore something NEW! Something other than all those scarves and wraps you may have started with! Only Garter (or Knit stitch) will be used.

Participants will need to bring a pair of Size 15mm needles and any Chunky yarn you may have or these can be purchased at Precious Purl. Our sample Garment, which can be viewed at Precious Purl, is just pinned together at this stage, to show one of the myriad ways, these shapes can be put together!

Places are limited, so email me (see my profile), ring or visit Precious Purl (details on sidebar)

These Geometric shapes could also be created using Crochet, something we could explore on the day!

Giveaway and Beware, the uneven footpath!!!

Yes! I did have a Giveaway for my 100th Post sometime ago and the Winner was Leisurely Lesley a loyal follower and her gift to inspire lots of Craftiness, is on the way! Thank you to the new followers who joined in!


Well it has been for me!! Very little happening on the blog front or any other front for that matter - 

because of a trip on a raised section of  footpath.What an inconvenience! Mr Purly is having to work overtime helping with showering, cooking, a little cleaning and the many other tasks we take for granted that we have 2 hands for!

I'll be back soon with an UPDATE on Workshops at Precious Purl.
Another great Cobweb Felting workshop was held last Saturday, next one in June booked out and exciting Knitting and Crochet classes happening too!
