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.

  • Ssh! Totally top secret - don't tell @alpacaly or @temporary_measure what I'm making with their super smooshy Alpaca yarn (& totally shameless product placement of my new hook and scissors from @beyond_measure_uk  which are a joy to use!

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx

Lovely stranger: Yeah, sure ♥
Always love seeing people wear their makes at Woolfest (ps if you know this lovely lady, let me know) @jeaniebags I think she is friend of yours?
