Doonan Debutants

No, not a tea cosy.  Well spotted.

C'est un Sac-cadeau Belle Petite - a pretty little gift bag - for gifts, of course.

Adorable Alex made this one.

Alex will present her childhood friend with tickets to the opera - a 50th birthday pressie - in this pretty little knitted gift bag.

Noice.  Real noice.

Doonan Debutants
Just 6 women came to my home in the Noosa hinterland yesterday to learn...

1.  Long tail cast on 
2.  Double Knitting - the basics 
3.  Knitting in the round with the Magic Loop
4.  Making lace holes
5.  Weaving into knitted fabric
6.  i-cord
7.  The tricks of Rose construction

Introducing Gorgeous Gail, Kharismatic Krystle and the Lovely Lisbet

Introducing Adorable Alex, Bubbly Beverly and Bella Bronwyn.

They also learned...

1.  Talking AND knitting is OK
2.  Breaking for Lemon Meringue Pie is OK too.
3.  There is no rest for the wicked
4.  Knitters are wicked

Thanks girls for joining me to knit and talk and eat and play in the first Doonan workshop.  'Twas a real beaut day.  The first of many perhaps.
