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
I assumed you cold upload from th iPad....it seems not...grrrrrr
Dear knitting chums,
It's been a while since my last rant/ramble (thank you all for your kind and consoling words) So I thought I'd check in with you all and updates some projects and plans.
It's been quite a week all in all. I'm not generally one to blog, Carrie Bradshaw fashion. Who are the men on men who knit after all? It's not like I've met any of you...will anybody read this?
But, I get home from a Saturday's teaching and, with a glass of wine in hand, decide to share my week with you all. We are chums after all.
Dear fellow knitters,
Happy new year to you all from London.
It seems that Quinton has done better than me on the knitted gift front - my Dad'd jumper never even made it onto the needles, let alone off. Although I did finish a felted reindeer table mat (!!!!!) and a cable hat...
Hope you all had a good Christmas. I was back at my desk today and heard this great programme on bathe radio about Ganseys. There weren't a lot of male knitters in the programme - but it was moving and interesting and great radio. You can listen to it here:
