Be Inspired Block of the Month


Welcome to a block of the month series of knitted blocks designed by inspirational creative Guru, Jane Renton.

We are heading into our fourth block at the time I am typing this and so I have closed the BOM for this round. Please email me info@beinspired.love if you want to be on the mailing list for the next time around.

Jane has been sewing and knitting ever since she was a young child, sewing her own clothes and knitting jerseys for longer than she can remember. Handwork is a passion of Jane’s and she loves colour, pattern and design. For her, the process of creating is therapy. Jane is a renowned Knit teacher and she is also an award winning quilter.

Together with Be Inspired, Jane will lead you through the process of knitting your own afghan, which using the yarns we have put together for you, will create a family heirloom. Should you wish to be added to the BOM Whats App group and receive support from your peers, and short videos of Jane teaching please send a message with BOM to my number which I will send you upon confirmation of sign up.

There will be approximately 20 blocks to make up an afghan 100cm x 80 cm (but of course you can always make more than the 20 blocks and grow it BIGger)

Techniques include:

Reading a knitting graph , Mitred square – joining 4 together, Cable knitting, Intarsia, Fair Isle (simple design of 2 colours only and grid design involving weaving behind), Various ribbing stitches, Brioche, Knitting with beads, Linen stitch, Entrelac, Slipped stitch, Lace (Also blocking the piece), Overlaid knitting, Finished edge/icord

Each month,  we will work together on a pattern. You will receive an encapsulated A5 pattern card and/or chart to work on together, and an additional pattern will be emailed to you to work on for additional practice (read Joy!)

There will be a choice between two different yarn packs. Click on the drop down menu below to see the photograph of the yarn and to read the description of the two different packs. Both packs are discounted by 10% especially for the series, and we have carefully selected the yarns and colours. Although packs may vary slightly, they will all be of the highest quality and will stick to this jewel like colour selection. The main difference is that the Deluxe Mixology pack contains a lot of local hand dyed merinos as well as imported yarns, whereas the Premier pack contains Scheepjes cotton blends.

As you are signing up for 10 blocks, we have worked out a special rate. As such, we would prefer for the series to be paid either upfront, or in a maximum of 4 instalments, the first being upon booking.  Payments need to be made by EFT only and using your order number. Instalment 2 would then be due in April, 3 in June and 4 in August.

Please drop me an email if you are desperate to start but need to make a monthly arrangement. Just to clarify the actual cost per month:

The monthly cost for the Deluxe for the first 5 months is R450, thereafter it is R380 per month for last 5 months. This includes courier fee.

The premier pack cost is R370 per month inclusive courier.

Jane and I so look forward to inspiring you on this new adventure!
