Cable class

Today's classes on knitting cables went very well, although the original sample sheet I provided had a typo, telling people to cast on the wrong number of stitches - not a good start, and a timely reminder to always to check it out by knitting a sample myself.  Thanks Sian for remembering my lesson from last year and reminding me that I had downloaded a simple pattern for an Irish Hiking Scarf (although I think you're allowed to wear it while doing other things too!)
Well done all - the cream Aran wools look lovely knitted like this and hopefully everyone will continue to knit so they finish their scarves.
We don't expect to see Natasha now until after her baby is born (next Thursday).  Best wishes and keep in touch.  :)
We are planning a trip to the Kaipara Sculpture Garden on Wednesday 06th July for our end of term day session.  More about this soon.
