Rowan Mersh-check him out

One of the most fun projects this fall was working with the incredibly talented textile artist Rowan Mersh. Rowan was looking to source yarn for his fabric fewelry and neckpieces. Interesting collaboration as I am known for colour use and Rowan uses only black, white and grey. Don’t have any pictures yet of his new pieces, but here are some samples of his work. Check out his website at www.rowanmersh.com which he hopefully will update with new shots soon!

harrogate ends with a bang

Hellie ( www.fussfreeflavours.com) and I had an interesting ,busy 4 days at Harrogate Knit and Stitch 2009-

stand is looking stuffed as usual with yarn, samples , kits and needlepoint. Loved meeting new people , the city and staying with the incredibly hospitable Lucy Best-Shaw. However, to prove that there is always drama and high comedy in my life, the roof box blew open on way home-scattering yarn and kits over the M1 and adjoining fields. Fortunately, no drivers were blinded by cashmere and alpaca bags and once I managed to get the box closed in 80mph gusts of wind, we carried on home. I was however too traumatized to attempt to take any pix of the spaghetti strand-like balls of soft spun we ran over for the next mile.

(By the way, the roof box was an Autoform Denver largest size-beware….)
