Bakewell England with The Glitter Knitter

Continuing in Merry Olde England, we are in Bakewell, England in the heart of the Peak District. It is awesome. In the Morning Steven did a class in the town hall including local knitters. He taught us the Magic Ball Knitting Technique which excited us and the Brits. Also they do not cast on nor knit like we do at the Yarn Garage and all day he was showing the Yarn Garage technique to all the Knitters. In the afternoon some of the group went out at noon to tour Chatsworth, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The rest of us got in some fun shopping. At three we joined the others at Chatsworth where we had a high tea. In the evening we had a joint session with the people from Wye Needlecraft. The propritors, Dean Goodings and Elizabeth Marsland, made the Yarn Garage crew right at home and we continued to teach the Brits some Yarn Garage secrets. It was all fun and entertaining and interesting. Wish you could be here.
