Hackers!

Standard

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll remember that several months ago I moved the blog, I stopped posting on this page and started up a new one (on the advice of my Techi expert).  Unfortunately, the blog has been hacked and has disappeared!!!  I don’t know if the techi’s can get it back but I’ll be a bit miffed if they can’t because there was a lot of good work on there!  Anyway, if we can’t get it back, I’ll probably just continue to post on this one.

I have a few ideas in the pipeline for this year….I’m going to blog on re-cycled knitting next month, we have several very crafty people who come to knit and natter and today we were talking about all the fabulous things they have made from old sweaters, sweaters bought from charity shops and unravelled and felted sweaters!!  There really are some fabulous projects so I’ve asked them to bring them to knit and natter next month so I can photograph them and post them on here!

I’m also planning some classes….Some of the knitters are keen to have low key small workshops.  One of the knitters is a fabulous quilter and is going to do small classes on the same afternoon as the Saturday knit and natters.  I’m also keen to share some of my finishing techniques so I would like to do some small low key workshops on mattress stitch particularly.  I’d also like to teach the world to knit!……

Some of you will already know that Susie is doing a World Challenge Event in July 2014, she’s going to Vietnam and Laos for a month and has to raise £3,500 in order to be able to go.  She’s well on the way but still has quite a bit to raise.  We’ve been selling buns at Saturday knit and natters and Susie’s been doing car washes (although none today as her head is in books revising for her GCSE’s).  Anyway, If anyone would like some one to one tuition on any knitting techniques I will be charging a rate of £20 an hour and donating it to Susie’s cause.  It’s amazing how much you will learn in an hour on a one to one!  I’m not an expert and I’m not a qualified teacher but I know my way round most things knitty!!  So, if you are interested in any of these please do drop me a line – kath@littlehoundalesknits.com

I’m having a finishing splurge at the moment too, I’ve just finished my Louisa Harding Mila sweater and I’ve nearly finished the waistcoat I’ve been making for hubby from Noro Men.  I’m on the first sleeve of the MillaMia Emma boatneck sweater but I’ve done the back and front so getting there on that one too!!  I’m not allowing myself to start anything else until I’ve made a huge dent in the WIP’s!!!

Anyway, check back soon…..

  1. You have a fantastic ‘real shop’ now it ha great atmosphere and stock! Loved our visit last month (once we found you)

      • That’s really bad. Can WordPress retrieve it for you? What on earth would be the point of taking your blog like that?!

      • I have no idea! There are just people out there that like doing random things like hacking a knitting blog!! At the moment I’m working with the techi’s to get this blog linked to the website instead and just keep working with this one then if the other comes back I might just transfer the content. I don’t know why but this one is easier to manage anyway!
