again! Life is really moving so mind boggling fast at the moment it is terrifying.
I would love it if time could just stand still for a little while, let me catch my breath and get up to date, before it starts moving again. I haven't even had time to read blogs never mind write mine. And I miss it.
The next issue of knitonthenet should be live at the end of next week but in the meantime the knit a poppy campaign has been relaunched using my poppy pattern.
You can get your poppy pattern by going here and making a £2 donation to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal
Also one of the two patterns I mentioned that were free in the I Knit day programme is now available on the knitonthenet site.
Its called Tiny Tippet. Its great for using up stash as it only uses about half a ball of yarn. In this case it was Noro Silk Garden
Here's Charlie looking gorgeous as always.
and a little close up of the rib pattern. Slightly different to a normal rib, the pattern gives extra 'depth' to the fabric, making it warmer round the neck.
I am actually getting a day out on Sunday and am going to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace. One day is never enough, I would love to be able to go for a full weekend at some point so I can really get to see everything properly. Quite a few good friends will be there and I've got to make sure I get round and see them all, so I don't always get to see all that's going on. However, the first stand I always look for is Habu I really could buy the whole stand so I have to really control myself. I've got to drop some photos off at the Habu stand aswell which brings me neatly to the end of my post by mentioning that A Stitch in Time can now be pre ordered online here. I just can't wait to see the finished book. I've been trying to pick favourites but its impossible. There are so many gorgeous garments in the book. I wish I didn't need to sleep and I could knit all the time!
Will be back very soon I promise,
