Two exciting knitting projects from Marie Wallin

Marie Moss Tile Cushion WIPOur celebrated knitting tutor, internationally renowned designer Marie Wallin, has created two special knitting projects for our guests on her knitting holidays at the Watermill this year.  There are links to the courses below, but hurry – we have only one place left, on Marie’s first week here this year, from Saturday 20 to Saturday 27 May.

Marie’s Watermill projects are an introduction to Mosaic knitting and an introduction to Fairlisle, where you’ll make a sassy Tam o’ Shanter. Marie will show you how to knit Fairisle in an easy and neat way whilst keeping your yarns untwisted.  She will also be showing you the two-handed method of creating Fairisle.

The pictures are ‘work in progress’ photos of a Mosaic Tile Cushion (above) and a Ness Fairisle Tam (below). Marie says: “The photo of the cushion shows it complete except for the final row of ‘tiles’ in a dark brown and green colour. The photo of the tam shows my design swatch and is a section of the whole tam.”Marie Ness Fairisle Tam
