I know January & February have been rather awful weather wise (we now have a leaking roof, and no longer have any fencing or garden gates! Thanks a bunch rain & wind!) but it has been a good excuse to stay inside in the warm and knit something colourful & lovely to cheer myself up. Well that's my plan of action & I'm sticking to it! My knitting classes have been fully booked so far this year so I'm guessing other people must be having a similar idea to me! :)
As we have all been stuck indoors hiding from the rain I have had plenty of time to focus on work......well while i'm sat feeding baby Niamh I anyway (which is about 70% of my day lately!) So there are lots of REALLY exciting things going on behind the scenes here at The Homemade Mama & I can't wait to tell you all more about it over the next few weeks!
However for now I've just set the dates for all of my new knitting & crochet classes up until July & to celebrate being so organised I've decided to do my first ever giveaway! I'm giving away a copy of Anna Wilkinson's beautiful book Learn to Knit, Love to Knit, 2 balls of Drops Karisma yarn & a pair of bamboo needles so that the winner can get started on knitting the fingerless mittens featured on the cover, straight away!
Drops are my favourite brand of yarn so it only seemed fitting to include 2 balls to get the winner started off in style, along with some great bamboo knitting needles.
So if you fancy joining me in ignoring this gloomy weather by indulging in some knitting in bright beautiful colours just enter below!
