Catching up, starting out and a whole lot of knitting

It seems it’s easy to forget to blog when you’re having fun, but grab a cuppa and your knitting and settle in- it’s catch up time!

We are now two weeks into our first learn to knit course and it’s going really well.  Our learners are cracking on with the essentials and we’re having a great time sharing our passion for knitting.  If you are interested in learning to knit with us but couldn’t make the first course don’t worry- more are planned!  Our next six-week course starts on 11th June and is aimed at beginners and those who haven’t knitted in a long time but want to give it another go.  The booking page is here, and if Thursday evenings don’t work for you stay tuned, because we will be adding alternative days very soon.  Don’t forget, places on our beginners courses are 25% off if booked before 31st May 2015.

Lots of work has been done behind the scenes at The Cable Girls over the last couple of weeks on essentials like our business plan and making sure our plans for financial record keeping are sufficient for when tax time rolls around.  We have found a few good resources and plan to blog about the things we’ve learned along the way, but if you have any questions about life as a new creative startup or tips on setting up a business let us know in the comments below.

Since we launched #projectwarmthcheltenham we have received 40 squares already, more than half a blanket! Thank you to all our knitters so far, if you want to join in the details are here on what we are asking for and where to send your squares.  We are also discussing our plans for future social projects, so if you have any ideas or want to work with us on a knitting project to benefit the community please leave us a comment or get in touch.

Bye for now,

The Cable Girls
