Wildacres Workshop at Puddleducks

Puddleducks, Ardee

I had a whale of a time at my first ever workshop last Saturday. The ladies who took the class were utterly charming, and keen to show me Ardee, which had it’s annual Turfman Festival on. Brilliant!

Clare is the owner of Puddleducks and she’s a busy lady! As well as running the yarn cafe, she makes and sells yummy jams and chutneys. I loved this notice on her van:

No Yummy Jam is Kept in this Van Over Night

This is Puddleducks (looks really inviting, doesn’t it?):

This is a pic of my class in progress – I had knitted objects all over the place by the end – practically hanging from the chandeliers, so they were!

Clare put on a fab spread for us (Nommy!)

And look at these dinky little cupcakes! Perfect size really, as I could have 2!

I really enjoyed my first foray into Workshopping, and I definitely learned lots from how it went and the huge pool of knowledge that was in the room. I’m already thinking about what to put in the next one!
