28 Minutes Later…

A couple of weeks ago a lovely friend gave me a hank of Rowan’s new yarn Kidsilk Creation in my favourite shade (Dewberry). I checked out the tutorial video on knitrowan.com and picked up my hook …

28 minutes later this  amazing, fluffy, luxurious and totally crazy boa fell off my hook! I’m afraid to say it’s already found a new home, where it will be much admired and hopefully much loved this Christmas.

You may remember I totally loved Rowan’s Kidsilk Stripe, which I used to make a very cosy cowl ( I have decided to keep that  all for myself), and Kidsilk Creation hasn’t disappointed either. If you’re intrigued, you can buy it online here. Believe me, if you like Loopy style yarns, this will be like knitting heaven!

  • Gonna get dirt under my fingernails, sctratched by rose thorns & probably break a nail or two - but I don't care! First photo shoot for new book is done & now I have six weeks before my hands need to look pretty again! The glamorous life of a crochet designer eh?!?

In a world where you can be anything, be kind, when all you have to offer is time, give it freely and without expecting anything in return.  Remember that compassion is the answer, always and forever. 
Three weeks ago I lost one of my best friends, but I have found solace in these 2 beautiful girls, now women, making their way in the world and knowing that they learned these lessons from the example set by their mothers.
I'm so sorry to everyone who is expecting a reply to an email, a letter or a facebook message. I am doing as much as I can, when I can, but I know I've fallen short of my usual efficiency!!!
