This week has gone past in a whirlwind (I think this is a common theme at the moment). I thought I would sneak in a quick “Week in Pictures” before I get ready for the big reveal tomorrow….
I have been keeping secrets from you – but tomorrow I shall be revealing my super exciting collaboration and I can’t wait. Pop back here at 9am (GMT) for a big reveal. The fabulous Knit British will also be releasing her special podcast featuring a “wee chat” with me about the collaboration http://www.knitbritish.net
Moving on. What has been going on this week?
Lots of work, fueled by lots of tea (the non caffeine kind, I have finally got my caffeine craziness in check after our Canada trip). My big cat tea pot has been keeping me company.
A very exciting parcel arrived this week. I am going to blog about it later on but I thought I would show you my new yarn. A custom hand spun! Yes spun just for me to my exact specifications. I can’t wait to cast this on. It is going to be glorious to knit with. And yes, it is grey.
My brilliant sister made me some oak sock blockers because she is fabulously talented and I am her big sister (so she has to do what I say). I will be taking these to Unwind next week to show off two exciting samples for Yarn Garden.
I will also be using them for some more baby sock designs and workshop treats.
I am trying to get her to make some and sell them online, she is so talented. Watch this space!
We went all green the other night. Spinach and Watercress Soup. I was skeptical. I shouldn’t have been – it was delicious.
Today I met my lovely husband for lunch. We had Pho. I loved Vietnam and we are big fans of Vietnamese food. This was an extra special Friday treat.
Finally – another exciting project I have been working on that will be revealed in full at Unwind, but I thought I would give you a sneak peak today. Socks for Yarn Garden. They are an amazing yarnie team from the north of England. George is a master dyer and I LOVE their yarn. Are you going to Unwind, Brighton? I will be there all day on Saturday – I can’t wait.
Hope you have a brilliant Friday. Don’t forget to pop past for the news tomorrow morning!
