Just a note to say that I will be attending the Smailholm summer fete on Sunday 19th August and will be giving a spinning demonstration, showing off (and selling) my lovely handspun yarns and some things I've made with them. At the last count I have yarn from about 40 different sheep breeds - and yak and cashmere and silk - so anything from the finest mongolian white cashmere to the hardiest Herdwick will be available. Click here for a link to the village hall website for more information. By the way, I've been told that the ice cream on sale is addictive and that the cakes alone are worth coming for! The doors open at 12 and the fun continues until about 4pmish.
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.
