April, shopping and ear warmers

Good Evening! February is sneaking up on us fast!! So is April, so we’ve launched dates for the April Sanctuary yesterday.

@lyndascraftroom and I have been to wales today to Abakhan, if you’re in the UK it’s well worth a visit, we normally go to the Liverpool branch but today we decided to go to Mostyn, they’ve a building each for yarn, other crafts and fabric, funnily enough we didn’t go yarn shopping but we did go fabric shopping, this is for one of the workshops we’re running in February, that’s all I’m saying, apart from Abakhan in Mostyn is Fabulous! It’s set in a nice rural area too. They’ve some fabulous yarns in stock but also yarn seconds, so yarns without ball bands, I bought some of this last year when I needed a super chunky for a doughnut pouffe, super chunky in big volumes is quite expensive so I managed to get it from Abakhan at a fraction of the price, but mixed it in with some hobbycraft hug it out too, any way worth a visit.

We’ve still got a lot of raffle tickets for February Crochet Sanctuary plus one weekend pass available to buy, we’ve sold 47 raffle tickets for February so the odds are really good if you buy one!! And don’t for get we’ve a fab workshop from the lovely Eleonora from @coastalcrochet which I’m really looking forward to!! So if you would like to buy a raffle ticket the draw will take place next Saturday on Facebook live, and Instagram, the tickets are £5 and all you need to do send monies to PayPal hello@thecrochetsanctuary.co.uk and we’ll send a receipt confirming ASAP, like I say we’ve sold 47 so odds are good!

For April our dates are 20th to 22nd April for the weekend and the day pass is for the Saturday 21st, and I was absolutely gobsmacked when Amanda Bloom from Little box of crochet agreed to run a workshop for us!! Shocked actually!! I’ll be tongue tied literally 🙈 I’ve met Amanda a couple of times and each time I do I make a fool out of myself!

Now because it’s January we’ve lowered the deposit cost, so it’s just a small deposit of £50 to book the weekend and balance due 6 weeks prior to the event, we’ve already got a few people booked on Yayy!!

We’ve got ideas bursting for future workshops just bursting! And we’ve already got June planned!

Anyway! Only one crochet pic from me this week as we’ve been designing the Spring CAL for Knitcraft which is going rather well.

I was asked by a lady at work to make something for her son to wear to keep his ears warm, he can’t really wear a beanie hat as he has the most gorgeous curly

Afro hair, I found a lot of the ‘headbands/ear warmers’ on ravelry rather girly and not really for a 7 year old boy, so I whipped up a quick on myself, then another for Abby to wear, I used Knitcraft leader of the pac, I’ve honestly got to say it’s the nicest alpaca aran weight yarn I’ve tried it’s just lovely, and I’m lucky to have a gorgeous girl to model it for me!!

It’s late! So happy hooking!!!

    Hello, I do a couple of blog posts on knitting and crochet events. One is about Events/Festivals etc and the other is about classes and workshops being run across UK. I think it sounds like your event might be better suited for the first post but if you give me the details of it then I’ll happily include it. Here’s the link so you can see what I tend to include. https://knittersandhookers.wordpress.com/2017/12/28/uk-knitting-crochet-events-2018/ Good luck with it! 🙂
