This is my current project - a bright knitted blanket made from Mia by Debbie Bliss... I am really enjoying making it.

Attention anyone in West London... 

On the evening of 2nd April, Badger & Earl will be throwing open its doors for its first ever proper event, and we’d love to see you there. 

The evening is all about offering people the chance to try-out some new skills in a fun and homely environment (i.e. our house in Grove Park, London, W4). 

During the evening you’ll get to try out two of the activities below, and even take the results of your handiwork home with you, so you can show off to your friends and family!

The taster sessions we’ll be running are:

Creating vintage-style fabric covered earrings
Crocheting your first granny square
Making a beautiful decorated Easter egg cosy

All the materials, needles and hooks you’ll need will be provided plus, because we believe crafting should be both social and fun, wine and nibbles are included in the price, and will be on hand throughout the evening.

Because we want everyone to have a great time and develop new skills, places at this event are limited. If you want to be there, please do secure you ticket as soon as you can.

Tickets are £25 each, but I have a special discount code for friends, which will give you 20% off - all you need to do is type in BADGER20 during checkout. 

Its going to be a great night, and it’d be amazing to see some of you there - to book, just go to http://www.badgerandearl.com/#!events/c2ai 

I am keen to spread the word, so please do forward to anyone you think might be interested.

I always use circular knitting needles these days, even for knitting back and forth. Do you agree?

For any of you who live in London, I will be selling my cashmere cowl kits (and other yarns too) at Spitalfields market tomorrow so please come and say hello if you're in the area. xx
