Holy moly WHAT A WEEKEND! 5 workshops, 80 students, 160kg of wool, three counties, 400 miles, countless laughs and dozens of chunky blankets made. It truly was a marathon weekend. So many people helped me in getting this weekend up and running out the door. From my wool suppliers @woollymahoosive & @worldofwoolteam in getting my orders dispatched quickly and efficiently, to my venues who welcomed me; #blockleyfos #zizzihenley @craft_coop #resolutecafemarlow @malt_house_emporium. To an old friend in Henley who came to pick up my car and park it in his driveway so I wouldn’t lose time searching for parking leading up to class start. To my handy next door neighbour who saved me trying to load 32kgs of wool into my car this morning. To my family for giving me the time to be MIA this weekend, and to YOU! The feedback was awesome and you all made my heart swell with pride. You guys seriously ROCK and I thank you so much for allowing me to teach you in my proper OTT way. Enjoy those beautiful new Chunkies everyone. I’m so proud.

So how is everyone? Have you survived the festivities? How’s the turkey coma been? I’m today going to attempt to get some organising and housework done. The bags of rubbish, packaging, boxes and general detritus has been all consuming. The house is a mess but we are fat & happy. My studio is calling as well with January projects that are approaching. Several workshops are upcoming over the next month as well. Have you seen the Boxing Day sale on the website? Take another 10% off already reduced prices. Use CHUNKY10 at the checkout. Have a great day all. . . . . #mychunkyneedle #sale #boxingdaysale #discountcode #chunkyknitblanket #knitwit #knittersofinstagram #craftmaker #craft #maker #merino #holidays #hygge #myhyggehouse #homestyle #cozy #cozybed #myknits #myknitsandme #thankful #2019goals #newyear #celebrate #mybed #home #decor
