End of February

Surprisingly enough I have lots of finished items, in fact I surprised myself looking back that the beginning of this year I have actually been quite productive, I really should blog more often.

I’m trying to get a little more organised and have recently started a bullet journal to try and keep on top of things as I was starting to feel overwhelmed by everything.

So the pink book is my new journal, squared paper of course, I ordered it from Amazon but I am really disappointed with it, my fault I should have paid closer attention to the description, but the paper is to think even a regular black liner pen goes through the paper making the reverse side unusable, fine if you only ever design or write in Pencil but I often have to use a pen to define a shape or pattern so am having to stick pages together to make it usable even as a journal. Thankfully I have one more squared paper A5 sketchbook from Asda when they used to do them for £2.50, unfortunately they no longer sell them, for my regular design work but after that not sure what I am going to do.

Speaking of designs I have been working up samples for the double filet workshop on this upcoming Saturday, I can only give you a sneak peak at some of the designs for the weekend but having seen all the worksheets on Fridays design meeting we are going to have a great workshop, a really diverse range of patterns all based around North America.2016-02-17 10.13.35-2

If any one is interested in coming to one of the workshops please get in touch we always welcome beginners to double filet.

I have made good progress on my Emiliana Shawl even if I haven’t taken a good photo of it yet, I am using some beautiful handspan given to me by Probablyjane which in real life is a beautiful dusky pink/grey and some lovely Alpaca Silk I was given by Essexgirlknits. This is my knitting group knitting so it is growing slowly but I am happier now that I have got to the slipped stitch pattern in the middle of the shawl.

I have been using more hand spun in my SkipNorth hat, this time my own, it is from a batt I actually brought on a Skipnorth weekend at Winghams and also I believe the Pink is from a ball I picked up from one of our phop swaps to. It is designed by Sheila to teach fairisle colour work at our 10th Weekend away.

We are almost at that time of year again, this year will I believe be our 12th year away in Haworth and we have a few new places to  visit this year plus a few old favourites. I am really looking forward to meeting up with everyone for a fantastic woolly weekend and will try and remember to take photos.
