So finally life is returning to normal a little. Besides a now very bad head cold (fingers crossed not flu).
Where to start I guess with the best news 'Skip North' has gone live, go and check it out it is going to be a fun weekend. Any questions feel free to ask.
Next up I guess is Ally Pally this is a photo of the chaos in the studio beforehand,
well I can say I survived it even feeling lousey for most of it, and all I can say is thank God for friends especially after the disaster of Thursday morning where I managed to get to the stand one minute before it all opened and poor Tess and Les arrived an hour later all down to really bad traffic but Lixie and Yvonne jumped right in and saved the day as well as Spellbound who lent them a float and pen and paper for any sales all I can say is thank you.
I met so many people in real life who have blogs I read I can't even begin to list them but it was so wonderful to meet so many fellow enthusiats. I also forgot my camera so I have to thank Dawn for this wonderful picture of the stand I also have to thank Polly for a much needed cup of tea, I could go on for ever it was nice to feel so supported by so many friends old and new.
I didn't buy much whilst there wasn't really inspired I think that was down to this cold but did get to a couple of classes all non knitting, more based on the design side one was a drawing clas which to be honest I probably could have taught but that was down to the wrong description being placed in the brochure but the guy was wonderful and I enjoyed the nice quiet time away from the stand. Another class was a mixed media textiles taster which again used most techniques that I have used before but again I enjoyed the time to create something that wasn't knitting. And finally I saw a lecture from Jan Beany on keeping Sketchbooks which gave me a wonderful chance to actually see her original sketches which I love.
The other good news was that Gill had finished knitting up my latest knitting Pattern for the latest kit and it seems to have turned out really well.
And finally another picture from my visit to Poole while I was at the quay this wonderful Tall SHip pulled in to moor.
a beautiful site
