I am going to be there selling all my lovely yarns, kits and patterns and some ready made goods, so I look forward to meeting you all. I will be giving impromptu knitting lessons, so if you want to learn a technique and I know how to do it, then I will share it with you!
Well, the hand spun hand knited shawl is finished at last and I think it looks great - here's a photo. I have been busy spinning more yarn so will post more photos soon.
I've been knitting and designing for a long time and don't think I'm going to stop anytime soon. The inspiration just keeps coming, there is always a new technique to learn, a new yarn to try out and so many knitters out there in the world sharing their tips and secrets that it's sometimes hard to know what to do next.
