Some of you may remember that I was working on a cabaret opera based on the true story of the Papin Sisters...well it's on this year in Bath:
Then in Orkney (I'll be stocking up on their marvellous locally-produced North Ronaldsay wool)
I just thought I'd check in and let you know that I'm still alive. I've been keeping up to date with all of your busy creativity over the last while but things have been busy and hectic and I haven't had the space to say hello - so I thought it was time.
I'm knitting a cardigan with a button band edge in moss/ seed stitch. I noticed that I'd done a wrong knit or purl a few rows back and thought I'd just unravel back and redo with a crochet hook....but fixing it doesn't seem to be working and I've got a very sloppy looking bit which looks worse than the original mistake.
Well, you asked!
I seem to be putting off the inevitable (getting down to work on a lesbian murder incest opera...) and came across Kieran Foley's website. I'm not a great lace fan, but I fund his designs really inspiring. There are some free patterns there too...
My very good friend katie is 40 in August...and I'd like to knit her smething nice.
Stuck at the airport waiting for a very delayed flight to Porto....do any knitting friends know if there are any yarn stores worth a visit?
I have oft waxed lyrical about the lovely wool from Orkeny and especially the delights of the North Ronaldsay wool hand dyed by Pam Murray. I found her online here: my recent vest was knitted in her 4 ply
