We’ve opened up a second knitting week for Sarah – by popular demand!

Knit busy group 1 reducedWe are delighted to announce that Sarah Hatton’s first knitting holiday week at the Watermill is now full. We have 11 participants eager to learn more with Sarah, work through her lovely projects (see below) – and, of course, enjoy la bella vita italiana at the Watermill.

So we’ve opened up a SECOND week with Sarah, from Saturday 28 May to Saturday 4 June 2016 – and we’ve already got one booking on this new week. So if you’d like to come, NOW really is the time to book, to make sure of a place – and to take advantage of our Early Bird booking discount. (See below.)

Sarah has designed to projects especially for her week-long courses here. First, a soft lace scarf project, which will help you understand how eyelet lace is formed; Sarah will also cover short row shaping, beading and knitted on edges. (The lace image above is an ‘inspiration’ shot and you will be making your lace scarf using the beautiful Rowan Fine Art yarn)

The second project is an Aran cable classic project (below). If you have always wanted to tackle the classic Aran sweater but were terrified to start the second project aims to ease your way into working cables.Hatton cable project

Note: All the yarn for these projects will be provided free of charge. You will only need to bring 3.25mm needles, pencil, eraser (and reading glasses if needed!)

Sarah Hatton is a designer for the Rowan Yarns and also teaches knitting classes worldwide. She learnt to knit as a child and has always been passionate about fashion. After gaining a degree in fashion design she began working in the handknit industry and has done so for over 15 years. She is also an enthusiastic, sympathetic and inspirational tutor and as well as helping you to make those two great projects, Sarah will also pass on professional tips and techniques to take your knits from ‘homemade’ to ‘handmade’.
