March- in like a lion……

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.

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!

Unravel 2014 – a wonderful event

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.IMG_20140222_103649
