Some news, an apology and a few photos …

Scarf in Debbie Bliss Angel

Yarn: Debbie Bliss "Angel"

First of all, the apology. I can’t believe I’ve neglected you all for so long. Thank you for all the nudges, yes I’m fine. Just very very busy and the blog has come very low on a long, long  “to do” list.

Ayway, now I’m back and wanted to let you know one of the reasons I’ve been so busy. Some of you know already that I have a new job:  I’m working in Knutsford at Fibre and Clay, the most beautiful shop / gallery run by the friendliest and nicest people I’ve met in a long time. Yes, it’s tempting to spend your day surrounded such gorgeous objects and delicious yarns, but I am exercising self discpline (a bit).  The shop has branched out recently, with online sales, a facebook page and a blog so even if you can’t get to Knutsford you can experience some Fibre and Clay goodness online!

I’d be lying if I said I’m not tempted by the yarns, so feel the need to finish this post with a few pics of my latest creations .

Yarn: Rowan Silky Tweed

There has also been a fair bit of baking going on (watch out for my marmalade cake recipe here soon) and I’ve been busy learning new skills such as Tunisian Crochet

Tunisian Crochet: Lace Stitch

and after 30 plus years I have finally have a crochet granny square I made myself!

I hope you are all having a productive 2011.
