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!

Debonnaire in Paris-Aiguilles en Fete

Made it back from Paris in 1 piece with van intact however without my credit card machine and most importantly red book which were stolen during breakdown ( along with a camera and some other personal stuff). Those who know me know I put everything in this book so I may have lost some contact details from the last few months. If you gave me these at Sandown( January), Harrogate, boutique de Noel or red cross, I would love an email. However, if you try to tell me I owe you 5 skeins beaded silk, beware I have a memory like a hawk….
amazing show, all the stalls were beautiful. Thank you to all my wonderful clients and Francois, Ellen and Anne for helping me out
