Westweek

Westweek was so much fun! As you may know from my Instagram, we had Stephen over for almost a week, we hung out, lunched, worked on amazing new collaborations (that are top secret!)

We also did all of the workshops Stephen West offers, but the Knit Excessories was the most fun one!

Everybody’s necklaces, bibs and decorative yokes were so cool and creative.

Here I am concentrating really had on my bind-off with an eyelash yarn 😀

We shared all of our materials and the choice was mind-blowing, there were so many different yarns, from sparkly to fuzzy, chunky, boucle, everything you can think of. A bit of Stephen rubbed off on everybody and we had loads of fun with colour and texture.

At the end of the workshop, everybody had a finished necklace (including Stephen’s neon necklace + bracelet creation!)

I’ve stacked my Knit Excessory with the necklace I was wearing and I loved the look, including the yarn tails hanging! (Also check out Stephen’s Penguono, looking familiar?)

They say don’t ever meet your hero, but Stephen is tall, charming, creative and so awesome, even better that what I had hoped for. We had a great week, we must meet again soon! (and seriously, he’s really tall, I’m just wearing 12cm platform boots)…
