Hi all - we had our first classes yesterday. Everyone is still keen, and most productive. We have decided to just have the afternoon and evening classes this term - combining the two daytime ones, as a few people have indicated that they are not always able to come, so there is room for all in one session. We will start that next week - I will email, as well as ring those without email.
No new photos yet, but some great things happening. Christine's pictures are just beautiful - she will have a lovely display in the exhibition. Natasha's blue and white baby blanket is amazing - especially since she was an absolute crochet beginner just a few weeks ago. Robyn continues to produce inspirational pieces - her Orewa landscape is one of my favourites to date.
While we are on the exhibition countdown, we are also continuing with specifically themed lessons, with knitting in the round on the agenda for next week. I will post the full course outline for this term soon.
Next week we will be labelling all completed items to date and allocated a position for each.
