Hello – I have missed you all!
What a month! We very unexpectedly moved house and everything has been in utter chaos. We are only in this house for a very short period of time and then it’s another move.
I’m living next door to a friend though, who is also a yarn addict which makes things a lot easier! The only problem is the sweet torture of having to walk through her little shop of handmade woolly beauty and stunning hand-spun yarns every day. It’s not as bad now, but when we first moved in the only knitty bits I had with me were two DPNs and a ball of Rowan fine tweed. Believe me, there are only so many uses for I-cords!
Thankfully now I have my yarn stash with me and my spinning wheels. I won’t tell you too much about the storage facility where the rest of our possessions are currently living, but I couldn’t leave my poor yarn there; not where fishing bait is being cooked 5 days a week… Shudder… Anyway!
We are about 10 miles from the Shropshire village of Bishops Castle. An afternoon out one day and we spotted a little something I had to return back to photograph just for you lovely people today!
This is yarn bombing with style! If ever you can you must see it!
So, what else is new? My lovely neighbour taught me how to make dream catchers which I have always wanted to be able to do…
Otherwise it has been lots of knitting for yuletide presents now. Have you started yours? Do you dread it and knit like mad at the last moment or plan months ahead, or even never knit for Christmas at all?
We had our first snow this morning so my current favourite spot is curled up in front of the log burner!
Please do keep popping back, I have not forgotten about you all, I’m just without internet access so posts may be less frequent than normal… xxx
