The Knitting Room

This is where you will find knitting projects – in progress and completed.

We will even try and post some tips and tricks that we have learnt along the way to help you in your efforts to create that special knitted article.

You can even ask a question on a knitting pattern or technique and we will try to answer your question.  If we don’t know, then we will explore it together with you and we can all learn something that we didn’t know before.
