I have had a long weekend helping out at the knit and relax at Alexander Palace at the Knitting and Stiching Show with Yvonne and lots of others. Thursday and Friday manic as normal with all the visiting school parties and hundreds of people wanting to learn to knit all at once but the resulting enthusiasm from all the students make it all worthwhile.
Of course had a little time to shop, its amazing how much you can spend in such a short time further details to follow.

oh what a day yesterday,, my comissioned shawl looks like it might need to be frogged, what a nightmare I will see when I get back to the studio. Robins jumper is growing and my Charlottes web shawl is on its third colour and row 60. Trying not to buy any yarn on yarnworld but not sure how long I'll hold out..........

I recieved my second parcel from Get Knitted today, they are such a great compny always next day delivery when in stock and beautifully packaged.
I cast on my Charlottes web shawl and made a mistake by the fifteenth row but have surrendered to the fact that there are going to be a few as it is for me couldn't face frogging it and starting again. Also managed to knit a couple more inches of Robins jumper and a couple of inches on my comission shawl.

Almost completed the back rib section of the jumper that has come from the sweater wizard programme for Robin.
I decided to do it in Jaeger Shetland which I purchased at Liberty's on Thursday and promptly cast on the 103 stiches on the journey home.
The yarn is beautifully soft and the completed garment is going to be very warm.
So fingers crossed that I will complete it for Christmas so at least he gets some wear out of it this winter.
