Okay anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a freak about Halloween. It’s a Canadian thing. In North America we pretty much prepare for October 31st 4-6 weeks in advance! After an hour or so of much needed work this morning, I shall be turning Bank House into a spooky haunted Georgian House in prep for tonight. Stay tuned to my insta stories for updates!
The days have been flying by and I often feel like I’m being tugged in a million directions. I’m busy - with EVERYTHING. It’s a good thing indeed, and the growth The Chunky Needle has experienced has been incredible. On top of knitting all those new chunky blankets and cushions for The Country Homes and Interiors show at Stonor Park on November 22, I’m taking new orders daily and am still running wonderful workshops meeting loads of new people and having so much fun.
Last week I was at two great workshops. The first at a new venue: The Bowden Stores in Market Harborough Leicestershire. It’s the furthest I’ve traveled yet for a workshop, but was so worth it as I had such a good time. I’ll be back to Bowden on Wednesday January 23rd for the much sought after Arm Knit class.

Next up was the wonderful Meggie’s in Stow-on-the-Wold. This was my third workshop at this lovely little Cotswold Lifestyle shop and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll next be at Meggies on November 17th for a Christmas wreath workshop. Click HERE.
So as the calendar flips to another month - a very VERY busy month. You shall find me knit knattering with my chunky needles, and making as many chunky blankets, cushions, scarves, ugh as possible. I love it so much, I just hope you all do too. Please come on out and see me at Stonor Park. Would love to meet you!
Have a great Halloween everyone! Stay safe.
