Was especially delighted to exhibit at Woolfest this year. The weather was just fantastic as was the show. Somewhat of a challenge setting up a long and skinny stall but it worked. Seemed like tons more sheep this year and they brought back the sheep auction.
Scott and I had a nice late breakfast before leaving( selfie here).
But had to race back home to get back to Savannah and Theo who managed not to trash the house in our absence. Savannah I spent a bit of time at the Henley regatta and especially liked seeing a woman enjoying the sights (sic)and sun while knitting under the bridge.

March has been crazy- great shows at Glasgow and Olympia and now the pressure’s on to get Alex’s wedding organised as well as her bar shower scheduled for early May.
Both Glasgow and Olympia were my best shows ever at these venues. Unfortunately for next year,the organisers have scheduled these events for the same date. Hopefully they will get it sorted out so 1 changes date.
Glasgow Creative Stitches 2014
Olympia Knitting and Stitching Show
Savannah spent some time with me in Glasgow on break from Uni in Edinburgh. I don’t think she’s knit for at least 3 years but even she was inspired. Grabbing a skein of chunky alpaca merino and with a brief re-lesson on casting on with circular needles, she knit this great headband ( finished during the ride back to Edinburgh)
My friend Liz from Heartfelt by Liz was there with her stunning felted wraps, brooches etc and these amazing corsages:

Somehow, I don’t think Alex will bite however unfortunately.
I spent some time talking to the lovely Yulia from Silkfelten Collection who is responsible for the fab mermaid and not the codpieces she was quick to say..
Finally thanks to my helper Vanessa who was just fantastic!
This weekend I’m at Create Henley on Saturday and Sunday in the Town Hall- Henley on Thames . Drop by if you’re in the area!

Unravel was busy as ever this year and a wonderful event. Saw many old clients and met some new . Many thanks to Vanessa and a pop in helper, Sandy from Sweden ( a co expat American) for all their help.
I was delighted to see this peacock shawl knit with Lustre 4 ply Silk in Teal colour way which is of course now sold out but will be redyed soon.
Off to Glasglow for Creative Stitches this weekend. Car is so stuffed the tires look dangerously low. Actually, they probably are low….
