Oh what !!I cannot believe it is September already -where was summer and those hot sultry days? –well Autumn is my favourite time, I have to confess it just stirs something deep inside,and this is my birth month so lots of yummy presents etc ,slightly makes up for another year whizzing by faster than I can knit.
Well been to Glaramara again and it only rained on the last day,by which time I was exhaustedbut totally exhilerated with all the fibres and creativity and felting etc and
meeting old friends and making new friends .Lizzy if you read this I cannot look at a plum without thinking of you,haha.Here are some piccies of us all gathered ready to start felting with Mollie Littlejohn from Australia .We all had a fabulous time the whole thing was oorganised by http://www.winghamwoolwork.co.uk Ruth and Alan have this down to fine art now and we all get very spoilt with great atmosphere great teaching yummy food and scenery to blow your mind .
So it is back to the real world and deadlines etc .Have a 3 month lace series running in Knitting starting next month October issue ,so that has been lovely to do especially after my Elizabeth Zimmermann knitalong with http://www.Knitpicks.com .
This American yarn company has some beautiful products but will not ship to the UK, come on Knit Picks please start shipping .
It is the time for all the great knitting shows as well Allie Pally and NEC but my favourite has to be Harrogate ,which is my home town.I will be there every day this year with http://www.Paviyarns.co.uk teaching on the stand and book signing so that is exciting and I hope to meet lots of people . Check Pavi out some lovely new yarns and hand dyed yarns and silks yummy and juicy .
