It is now over two years ago when I started the Knitting Club at Blacksmith Shop Crafts. It started with regular one or two people and has now grown to a group of four to eight. And we always have such good time.

I am not sure whether cake plays a major part as an attraction or is it the company, atmosphere or simply just the fact that it is time for the knitters when nobody will disturb them or disrupt them for their lovely work? Who knows, but we love it.

We inspire each other and learn from each other. It started by me showing how to- and now I find that my role has diminished as a tutor. I still try to bring in new ideas and use the fact that I am from Finland which has great knitting and hand craft traditions as a platform for different projects.

if you are curious and want to join us, please let me know. There is still room for a few more!
