Carol picks up our dropped stitches. Come and knit them together with her

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.We are deeply grateful to Carol Meldrum, who gracefully stepped into the breach when our knitting tutor Sarah Hazell had to pull out due to a family illness.

Carol is taking over Sarah’s inspiring knitting week from Saturday 4 May to Saturday 11 May. Not only that, she is also taking over and augmenting Sarah’s exciting projects for the week (more details below). We still have room for three or four more knitters, and their non-knitting partners, if they would like to come too.

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.Carol Meldrum is a Scottish textile designer, workshop tutor and author of many popular knitting and crochet titles. That is her lovely poncho design to the left. Since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, she has worked within the textile industry as a designer for many High Street fashion outlets, as well as the internationally renowned hand-knit label Rowan. She is a successful workshop tutor, teaching all aspects of knit and crochet in an informal environment. “Carol cares for both the beginner and more confident knitters/crocheters. I’ve been on several of her courses, thoroughly enjoyed them and always learnt something new.”

Carol will work with you on a special project, another lovely poncho, this one designed by her friend The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.Sarah Hazell, and show you how designs like this can be altered for different heights, body shape, arm length and necklines. And there’s an additional mini-project, a knitted or crocheted corsage, inspired by the Watermill’s gardens.

You will also have the perfect opportunity to make new friends in the company of like-minded people… and enjoying the true, unspoilt Bella Vita. Yes, we can promise you a wonderfully relaxing knitting holiday in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, with leisurely knitting days, wonderful food and wine – and, of course, convivial knitting sessions.
